Funding

 

REACH Columbia Union makes tuition stress-free through scholarships, canvassing, and other fundraising opportunities so that you can focus more on your spiritual journey.
 

Scholarships

Within each Conference of the Columbia Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, a limited number of students are eligible for a $2,500 scholarship on a first come first serve basis. For those outside of the Columbia Union Conference, we encourage you to contact your Conference and see if they are willing to be a support.

Listed below are the Columbia Union Conferences:

Canvassing

You will be involved in several canvassing opportunities that will cover a good portion of your tuition. Students participate in Youth Challenge (YC) for two summers and a three week long Fall and Spring Blitz during the school year. You will finish canvassing with not only a financial blessing, you will grow spiritually, socially, and in leadership skills that you can use in your future career!

Fundraising

All of our students are encouraged to raise funds to help cover their expenses for the school year. Our team provides ideas, resources, and encouragement for this process, walking with you from start to finish. You can earn approximately $1,000 from fundraising! We encourage you to get creative in raising funds. Listed below are several ways that have been successfully used:

  • Write and send a personalized fundraising letter to supportive adults and family.
  • Ask your pastor if you can make a short appeal before your church's board.
  • Set up a fundraising page (GoFundMe, CrowdRaise, or YouCaring) expressing your goals.
  • Try out traditional fundraising ideas like a bake sale, yard sale, car washes, etc.
