MESSAGE from President Wayne Hove:
The donations raised through Donate Your Change will be used to fund LCBI's Chaplain position. This role is critical for the school's mission of nurturing, equipping and discipling students to be Christ-centered leaders.
As a member of the Administrative Leadership Team, the LCBI Chaplain provides spiritual support to students and staff, strengthening the 'faith-presence' in the school.
Just as importantly, the Chaplain exercises a pastoral role by getting to know the students as individuals. Working closely with the school's Counselor, the Chaplain takes an interest in extracurricular activities, is available to all parents, and ensures that students from all Christian denominations, as well as unchurched students, feel welcome.
Finally, a caring, mature and supportive Chaplain greatly assists a student’s capacity to cope with the stresses of modern life.
This role directly supports our 100-year motto, "We Would See Jesus" … Jesus as the Christ, and Christ in our lives.
Your small donation of perhaps $1 per day, given through Donate Your Change - when combined with similar involvement of many other alumni, parents, board members, staff, and friends - will enable LCBI to support a full-time on-campus Chaplain.

Donate Your Change employs a technology-based approach that is unique and highly sustainable. Funds are raised by participating, licensed organizations without requiring people to change anything about their lifestyle or day-to-day activities and they are raised 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. All funds generated through Donate Your Change are tax receiptable since our clients are registered charities.
Donate Your Change believes small change can make a big impact. Fundraising no longer has to be restricted to those with large bank accounts. Because virtually anyone at any income level can participate as a donor using our software, donor fatigue is eliminated for both the donor and the organization.
