Listowel Christian School has an active Fund Raising Committee which oversees many ongoing and annual events. With the assistance of many volunteers and beyond, a substantial amount of funds are raised in support of LCS!
The LCS Fund Raising Cheese Orders offer you quality cheese products on a monthly basis. Simply fill in the form and return it to the school office with payment to LCS Fund Raising. Your cheese will be delivered to the school and sent home with your oldest child the day it comes in. If you have a large order, you may want to come in and pick it up yourself. Those without children at LCS can make other arrangements for pickup of their order. The Fund Raising Committee receives a percentage of the sales as profit. Every order makes a difference! Please click here for an order form.
LCS offers declining balance gift cards for many local retailers. Gift cards are available for purchase online through Fundscrip. LCS profits between 3% and as high as 7% on the sale of these cards.

LCS Wish List
If you would like to donate to a specific cause at LCS we do have a “wish list” of things we would like to upgrade. We welcome your contribution to help us reach some of these goals. We also realize that some donors wish to remain anonymous and we respect confidentiality. If you would like to help change the lives of the students at LCS by helping us upgrade our equipment please contact us today.
LCS Pie Day
[October]We look forward to crisp autumn days to return, along with our annual Apple Pie Day! A small army of volunteers spends one day mixing, rolling, peeling, slicing, filling, bagging, and boxing up to 1000 fresh pies. These delicious, made-from-scratch pies are ready to bake, or freeze them to be enjoyed all winter long. Along with our famous apple pies, we now offer cherry pies and strawberry/rhubarb pies. Watch here for an order form, or contact any school family to reserve yours – they are great desserts to share at Thanksgiving!

LCS Fall Drive
The fall drive plays a very important role to help keep Christian education affordable at LCS. Annually we set our goal to raise $100,000 which will go directly to lowering tuition. We would like to thank all who have supported families at LCS by contributing to the drive. Please note that due to the current ongoing capital campaign we will not be running the drive for the duration of the pledge period (4 years). If you would like to learn more about how you could contribute to the campaign please click here.
LCS Capital Campaign
In June 2017 we launched a Capital Campaign to upgrade our facilities. In short order we met the goal to proceed with the purchase of Listowel Central School and have begun the building upgrade phase. We plan to be ready for the 2018/2019 school year at the new site. We also have been able to come to an agreement of sale for our current property on Line 87 which will ensure financial stability moving forward. We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to all who committed to the Forward in Faith Campaign, your support will change the lives of all the students & staff of LCS!
