As with any non-profit organization, FBCS depends on fundraising to help with a percentage of their budgetary needs.
We have several major fundraising activities during the year. They include:
Marigold Festival Food Booth
This activity takes place during Pekin’s annual Marigold Festival (first weekend after Labor Day). The funds raised here are disbursed by our Booster Club to help fund athletics, fine arts, and classroom supplies at the school.
Greatest Gifts Campaign
At Christmas-time, we ask our families, friends, alumni, and churches to consider giving a gift to help our General Fund.
On Friday, March 3rd, our students will be found at the Christian Center in Peoria bowling to raise money for our Booster Club activities as well as our General Fund. Unlike many Booster Clubs, the FBCS Booster Club does not just benefit athletics, but also helps support our fine arts program, our Bible Quiz Team, and many classroom projects are made possible by our Booster Club.
A student may contact you for pledges, you may contact a student to pledge an amount, or you may go to https://www.gofundme.com/fbcs-bowlathon-2017 in order to support our Bowl-a-Thon. THANK YOU!!
FaithFest is our school carnival held in May on the school grounds. Part of the funds go to help our student government of our secondary classes as they work toward their eventual senior class trip. Part of the money helps our General Fund.
Held in the summer at Sunset Hills Golf Club in Pekin, this event goes in its entirety to our Tuition Assistance Program. This fund helps pay tuition for students whose families would not otherwise be able to afford an education at FBCS.
