The Charlie Keyan Armenian Community School operates as a community institution that depends not on one patron or organization, but on a broad-based network of supporters. Here are some ways you can help:
ENROLL YOUR CHILDREN/GRANDCHILDREN in the Charlie Keyan Armenian Community School. Since 1977, the school has provided students with a quality education in a safe, caring environment and instruction by teachers with unparalleled devotion. Encourage family and friends to do the same. CKACS is a family educational experience.
MAKE A MONETARY DONATION to the school. CKACS is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations to the school are tax-deductible (Tax ID 94-2459753).
- Consider making a lasting tribute to a loved one by purchasing a Commemorative Tile for our donor’s wall, where for as little as $250, your engraved tile will show your support.
- CKACS also accepts donations for all occasions, including birthdays, anniversaries, in lieu of flowers, etc.
- We offer numerous programs at various levels of participation, including classroom, program, and student sponsorships.
Millennium Circle Giving When you contribute to Annual Giving, you help to meet the school’s most pressing needs. Since tuition does not cover all of the school’s expenses, Annual Giving makes up the difference between tuition revenue and the actual cost of educating our students. These resources are used primarily for technology acquisition, program support for all levels of the school, faculty development and facility maintenance. By supporting Annual Giving, you are helping to minimize tuition increases and supplying critical funds for the following:
- Technology acquisitions to equip our classrooms
- Financial aid to students in need
- Retaining top teachers and strengthening their teaching practice
- Educational programs at all levels of the school
- Playground facilities
- Initiation of new programs and technologies
- Reinforcement to meet unforeseen challenges throughout the year
Student Sponsorship. For $4,480 per year, you can sponsor a child who would not otherwise be able to attend the school.
CKACS Endowment Fund. The CKACS Endowment Fund is ideal for those who wish to leave a lasting legacy to future generations. With your investment of $5,000 or more, we will discuss various options that can be achieved through your donation, taking into account your desires and the needs of the school.
COACHES CORNER: The new fundraiser with the Realty Concepts 'Coaches Corner' program where if a home is referred to the Coaches Corner for sale or buying...the school gets a donation check from the program is just getting started.
MAKE IN-KIND CONTRIBUTIONS to the school. The school accepts books, computers, school furniture and other assets necessary for its daily operations as well as services and other opportunities that directly benefit our students. Please contact the office if you have an in-kind donation or would like to support the school in alternative ways.
Federal Employees Campaign. All Federal employees, local, nationwide, or overseas, are encouraged to participate in their Annual Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) to donate to nonprofit institutions. The CFC includes thousands of charity campaigns throughout our country and overseas, and we are the only Armenian charity in the entire CFC directory! Our school is now on that list and the ID number is #23531.
VOLUNTEERS are needed and encouraged to participate in the educational process. If you or anyone you know would like to share your expertise on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis, please contact the school.
