PACE 2018/2019, Unity’s annual fund drive, kicked off the week of October 16 – October 19. PACE provides funds that help keep Christian education affordable. This year’s theme is, “Preparing Young Hearts and Minds for Christ’s Service.” PACE provides every Unity student with the opportunity to build a foundation in Christ through a Christ-centered, bible-based, academically-excellent education that prepares them as leaders for Him in this world. And, because $165,000 from PACE is designated for a $275 grant-in-aid per student, ALL STUDENTS benefit! Another $175,000 from PACE is designated for tuition assistance for families who want their children to attend Unity but financially would not be able to, and demonstrate this need based on their financial application. And, the remaining $65,000 will go toward capital improvements. To reach our goal of $400,000, we need your help through PACE. Every year, the number of families who struggle to afford Christian education is growing. We must not let any child lose the opportunity to know Christ more fully through a Christian education experience because of financial constraints. Consider this… Once again, we have a matching gifts challenge. For every new or increased financial gift from last year to PACE, we receive a match (up to $50,000). That means your increased or new gift is doubled! So, please prayerfully consider how you will respond when our fundraising partner J. Milito & Associates, Inc. calls on you. Please remember to pray for PACE and the $400,000 needed to sustain and provide for Christian education for ALL students… and then respond generously. Thank You!
