One Community, One Mission, One Promise.

Supporting Catholic Education for our Leaders of Tomorrow

The 2016 Annual Fund Drive is in full swing. 
Help us meet our 2016 goal of $250,000!

The 2016 Annual Fund Drive kicked off October 3. We are working together toward our $250,000 goal and hope to reach it by December 31, 2015. Gifts can be paid monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually. Annual gifts can be paid any time between now and June 30, 2016. However, please make your pledge by December 31, 2015 so we can plan. Donate online or click here for a pledge form.

Your support of the Annual Fund Drive keeps the Foundation and our Catholic schools operational and affordable. With your gifts of prayer and financial support, you ensure the viability and sustainability of our Catholic schools in Battle Creek.

Providing a gift every year provides support upon which the schools and Foundation can rely. All gifts, great and small, truly make a difference for our Catholic schools. Working together, we fulfill the promise of a Catholic education for our leaders of tomorrow.

Thanks to our wonderful supporters of…

  • the Annual Fund Drive
  • the General Endowment Fund
  • other special school needs
  • the over 35 families who have special funds with the Foundation
…the Foundation was able to provide over $500,000 to BCACS for the 2014–2015 school year. Over the last 30 years, your gifts have allowed the Foundation to provide over $25 million in support of our Catholic schools in Battle Creek.


In 1983, the BCACS Foundation Board of Trustees detemined;

"Future success required cooperative resource management
and innovative development efforts.” 

And our community: alumni, parents, staff, parishioners, and friends have responded generously and loyally!

Thank you! Your charitable gifts have allowed over $10 Million to be directly invested in our Catholic schools. You have:

  • enhanced our academic programs,
  • expanded our fine arts offerings,
  • developed our community outreach and campus ministry programs,
  • helped to minimize tuition, and
  • through support for our tuition assistance program you have made
    a Catholic education possible for hundreds of students (one out of
    three students) each year.

Your overwhelming generosity for our capital campaigns is transforming our school and parish facilities by enriching the experience for all of our parishioners, religious education and Catholic school students and community through:

  • ongoing capital maintenance and improvements,
  • renovation of our old facilities,
  • construction of new facilities.
By sharing your legacy gifts, you are sustaining Catholic education forever. Our Endowed Funds have grown to nearly $2 Million. Your investment in endowment funds guarantees our schools forever!

Share our commitment to our children and our church…Now and Forever.
