Billings Christian School Education Foundation


Our Vision

Embracing the future, we are an organization dedicated to partnerships resulting in a dynamic state-of-the-art learning environment where students are equipped to lead, serve, and contribute to our world.

Located in Billings, Montana, the Billings Christian School Education Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) corporation, officially recognized as such by the Internal Revenue Service on November 17, 2006.

The Foundation was an outgrowth of the Board of Directors and the leadership of Billings Christian School who envisioned the need for a philanthropic non-profit organization to support charitable programs and services supporting and enhancing quality academic programs, student scholarships, infrastructure development, and similar initiatives.


The Billings Christian School Education Foundation is dedicated to enriching the educational experience of students through the acceptance and investment of philanthropic gifts that help fund initiatives beyond what is provided by the annual budget of Billings Christian School. Examples include supporting capital construction projects, funding to develop, enrich and enhance academic programs, providing financial resources for special projects, contributions for student scholarships, and various endowments.
