My name is Talia. I am starting this campaign on behalf of the Parent Association for Open Door Christian Academy in Fort Washington, Pa. Open Door is a small Christian school that serves families from Philadelphia, Montgomery County, and Bucks County. The school strives to provide an affordable Christ-centered education for Christian families and has been changing lives for 45 years.
Many of our families are struggling to pay for tuition due to loss of employment during the current pandemic. The tuitions are the source for the salaries and health benefits of our dedicated faculty and staff. The school is a ministry of Church of the Open Door which would ensure that teachers do not lose their salaries or their health benefits. However, due to the loss of employment of congregants and the lack of in-person services, churches are taking a hit to giving. Our concern is that the shortages in tuition at Open Door will be a financial drain on the church, which is striving to continue employment and health benefits for the church faculty and staff.
We are asking for donations to help cover the shortages in tuition- 100% of the donations will go to cover shortages in tuition. If giving surpasses the current need, excess will be given to the existing ODCA scholarship tuition
fund for the families in need so that their children can remain at Open Door for the 2020-2021 school year. Donations may be tax deductible, but please check with your tax professional.
