Raised by 70 people in 1 month
The story is simple. We are in deep financial trouble. In order to pay our faculty, staff, and many bills, we must raise lots of money quickly. If we don't, the great things we do for Jesus at CLS will end and the school will close. Act now and be very generous, more generous than you thought you could. It is time to SOS (Save Our School).

For more than 130 years, Central Lutheran School has been a place where generations of children have grown in faith while building a strong academic foundation for the future.  CLS has faced financial challenges for a decade, since the beginning of the financial crisis and recession. Thanks to God’s providence through His people, we have kept our doors open and have never had to turn a student away for financial reasons. But years of struggle have caught up with us: now our need is critical and urgent and we need everyone who loves Central Lutheran School to band together to Save Our School.

Our faculty and staff have made great sacrifices, going without pay to keep our doors open this spring. That tells you that something special is happening here, and that sharing Christ's love with the students we serve is at the foundation of the work we do.

We are turning to our supporters now and asking you to give generously, and soon. This GoFundMe page is one part of our fundraising strategy. Board members and volunteers are meeting with potential funders, and looking for solutions to keep CLS alive.

Our goal is to raise $450,000. Please take a few moments to watch the videos above and learn more about how you can help us reach our goal.

The sign in front of CLS declares that we are an Easter People. We believe in God’s power to resurrect. Please pray with us and please give.
