Falcon Fund in Five Parent Drive
Falcon Fund in Five Parent Drive
Show your support for Ben Lippen with a “High Five” to the Falcon Fund
During the week of October 23-27, we invite all Ben Lippen parents to give to the Falcon Fund during the Falcon Fund in Five giving drive! Your gift at ANY level helps us reach our goal of 100% participation.
Every gift matters, no matter the amount. Every year, we see small gifts come together for a big impact.
The Falcon Fund touches every aspect of a student’s experience, providing what most likely influenced your choice of a Ben Lippen education. Your gifts allow us to support enhancements in technology, improve campus security, invest in transportation, expand academic programs, and continue to grow our spiritual life, arts, and athletics programs.
Your participation is hugely impactful! Outside organizations always ask before they make a gift what level our parents, faculty, staff, and Board give. When those closest to Ben Lippen demonstrate their loyalty by giving, these organizations are more likely to make their own gifts. Gifts at any level are greatly appreciated.
Here’s what you can expect:
- Fun, friendly class and division competitions to make participating fun
- More information about the Falcon Fund in your mailbox, inbox, and Tuesday Folders
Mark giving to the Falcon Fund off your to-do list today and give now!

Falcon Fund FAQs
Every student benefits from the Falcon Fund. The Falcon Fund provides the very things that most likely determined your choice to send your child to Ben Lippen: exemplary teachers, exceptional offerings in exploratory subjects, more personal attention with individualized student learning, an unapologetically Christian environment, and so much more. Paying tuition gives your child access to all of this. Charitable gifts are necessary to help sustain and expand it. Giving to the Falcon Fund also helps keep tuition as low as possible for all families.
The first question that most outside constituencies ask before making a gift is, “What do your Board, faculty, staff, and parents contribute?” It is so important that we show support from within before we go to outside sources for contributions. Participation in the Falcon Fund demonstrates to others that we, as the closest ones to the school, philanthropically support our mission. What better way to motivate other groups to give? No gift is too small!
Absolutely! You may make a pledge, payable by June 30, 2024, and still be counted in our participation numbers. Visit our online giving page, select “Make a Gift to the Falcon Fund,” and choose the pledge option. You may also set up monthly giving if you prefer.
What drew you to Ben Lippen School for your students is most likely the impact of the Falcon Fund. Every family plays an important part of the foundation on which the school was established: prayer and generosity. Our only means to cover our expenses are through tuition and fundraising. With a goal of making quality Christian education affordable for our families, we fundraise to make that possible. Tuition partially covers the cost of a Ben Lippen education. The rest is bridged by our generous parents, grandparents, and donors. No tuition dollars are spent supporting financial aid, even though it is one of the school’s highest priorities.
