There are many ways to give to Oak Hills.
Oak Hills Ministry Fund
Oak Hills Ministry Fund: These funds are used primarily for all three ministries of Oak Hills. Oak Hills Christian College receives 50% of all gifts to the Ministry Fund for general operating expenses. The Center for Indian Ministries and Camp Oak Hills each receive 25% of the Ministry Fund for operating expenses. Examples of operating expenses include items such as utilities, maintenance, office supplies, and updating staff and faculty technology. Our 2017-2018 fiscal year goal for the Ministry Fund is $75,000.
A student you know can get an institutional scholarship because you’re an alum.
Oak Hills Christian College
Student Grant Fund: SGF monies are used to fund grants and scholarships for Oak Hills students. Oak Hills provides over $400,000 in direct aid to students. As a result, the average loan debt for a Bachelor’s degree graduate has been reduced by $10,000 over the last 6 years. Our budgeted goal for 2017-2018 for the SGF is $275,000.
Alumni Project Fund 2018 and 2019: Chapel Technology Upgrades. The technology in the Chapel is outdated, hindering the worship and learning environments in this space. We need your help to bring our Chapel to its full potential! This year, we are moving on to Phase 2 to update our audio technology in the chapel. This will include transferring to a digital board, updating our wireless microphones, and expanding our available microphones for instruments. We hope to better equip students in their learning experience here on how to run sound in ministry. This phase will cost $15,000. Our aim is to achieve this goal by May 31, 2019.
Camp Oak Hills
Camp Oak Hills: Funds donated to Camp Oak Hills go primarily towards general operating expenses. This includes reoccurring expenses, office supplies, and keeping the facilities up to date.
Camp Oak Hills Scholarships: Camp Scholarships are for children who would benefit from camp, but without financial help, would not be able to attend. Gifts to the Camp Oak Hills Scholarship fund give children the opportunity to begin a lifelong faith journey.
Center for indian ministries
Center for Indian Ministries: Funds donated to Center for Indian Ministries go primarily towards general operating expenses. This includes utilities, office supplies, and maintenance projects.
Mokahum Ministry Center: Funds donated to the Mokahum Ministry Center go to Mokahum school expenses. These include honorarium and travel expenses for guest teachers, room and board for students, and student program and recreational supplies.
Mokahum Ministry Center Student Scholarships: Donations towards Mokahum Scholarships help fund Mokahum student tuition costs. The Native American students at Mokahum pay $3000 toward training and living expenses each year. By donating to Mokahum Ministry Center Scholarships, you help train Mokahum students to become leaders in their Native communities.
Capital Campaign Fund:
As part of our 25 year master site plan, A Campaign for Real Transformation saw landscaping; the removal of East Hall, the former women’s dorm; and key campus buildings refaced in 2017 (click here for more information). The budget for these changes and the new residence hall is $4.3 million. As of 12/31/2017, we have received about $3.74 million in gifts and pledges, thanks to a matching grant of $250,000 that was met by the end of 2017. We still welcome gifts and pledges to go towards the remaining $560,000.
Camp Oak Hills Dining Hall & Cabin Remodel: In the fall of 2013, a fire destroyed the Camp’s kitchen, and damaged the dining hall. A long range plan to winterize camp buildings had been in place and through the fire God gave us the opportunity to accelerate the time line for these improvements. Insurance coverage and generous gifts have enabled us to use the rebuilt kitchen and dining hall during the camp seasons; however, there is still work left to be done before we can say that the construction is complete. Winterization of the building and finishing the new basement section will move forward as funds become available.
