$250,000 Matching gift Details 

Introduction

Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7 

I have followed the ministry of Libertas Christian School from a distance. I have heard you say that children are the living message we send to a time we will never see. I agree!
It is my privilege to make this matching gift available. I firmly believe in the funding strategy of your school. I hope that it will become a model for others to learn from and follow.
The financial weight of Christian education cannot be solely borne by the families enrolled at your school. With this gift I challenge others to cheerfully join in the effort to rise up and help the ministry of Libertas Christian School.
