Help Support Our Mission

There are many ways you can strengthen Elyria Christian School’s pursuit of its mission with your financial support.

Elyria Christian School is committed to providing a Christian education that excels in spiritual, academic, and physical instruction. Our school is funded with a combination of tuition and financial gifts. The tuition we receive from families does not fully cover the operating costs of the school, and it is your generous gifts that allow us to continue expanding our ministry. Below, you will find different options available for giving. Thank you for partnering with us.


 To donate to ECS online, please click the PayPal DONATE button. You will be taken to PayPal’s secure processing. You don’t need to have a PayPal account to make a donation. You can simply enter your credit card information. You can print a receipt for your tax-deductible donation right from PayPal. Elyria Christian School is a 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax-deductible.

Box Tops for Education App

The Box Tops App is a great way to earn money for ECS. All you need is your phone! Download the Box Tops app, shop as you normally would, then use the app to scan your store receipt within 14 days of purchase. The app will identify Box Tops products on your receipt and automatically credit your school’s earnings online. Twice a year, ECS will receive a check and can use that cash to buy whatever it needs!

How To Use The Box Tops App

Download the App on your phone and make sure you designate Elyria Christian School as your designated recipient.

One parent said, “I personally signed up this summer and within a few months raised $8.60. That’s the same as me clipping 86 cardboard squares off of my grocery items AND remembering to bring them to school! Instead I just scanned my receipt. I have just made it a habit to scan my receipt right after I load my groceries in my car.”

The other great thing about the App is that they often have promotions going on where Box Tops are doubled or tripled. These promotions are advertised on your app. So, if you desire, you can be strategic as to when you purchase Box Top items.
