Thank you for supporting the ILS 2020 Campaign!

This is a historic year for our community, as we will also be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the founding of Immanuel Church and School. Immanuel’s history in Alexandria began in 1870, and in the year’s since, God has richly blessed our school. In recent years, we have witnessed incredible growth, both in our physical space and our enrollment, allowing us to serve families through classical education and Lutheran education in our nation’s Capital.

Now is the time to celebrate our history and to cement Immanuel’s place in Alexandria for generations to come. Our ILS 2020 Campaign will raise funds to do just that - enhance our outdoor facilities, allow us to continue to recruit, train and retain outstanding teachers, expand our tuition assistance program, and directly benefit our students and teachers this year and into the future. 

Over the course of the year, we will be asking for your support in raising $187,000 to celebrate our founding and move us forward to our next 150 years. 

We have a new option for giving to support our school: recurring donations.  In addition to one-time gifts, families and friends can now set up an easy monthly donation to ILS via credit or debit card.

Tuition Assistance Fund

Partnering with us through your contribution will help enhance our investment in our students and families. 

Your gift allows ILS to continue to serve our classmates and friends, while also increasing the number of families we are able to assist in accessing an ILS education. This year, ILS has already provided over $100,000 in financial assistance to families. 



General Fund

Your unrestricted gift supports our classrooms above and beyond the operating budget, provides professional development opportunities for our teachers to continually improve their skills and enhance their impact on the lives of students, and provides flexible resources to advance the mission of ILS. These funds support materials, opportunities and programs to directly benefit our students in meaningful ways throughout the year and fill needs that cannot be met by tuition alone. 

The red school doors at Immanuel have opened and shared a classical Christian education with thousands of students and families for more than 70 years. Inside these walls, we have been blessed to partner with families in the humbling task of nurturing, training and equipping children to live out their various vocations, with love and service to their neighbor, in response to the love and mercy God shows each of us. 

Thank You for Your Generous Support!

Your gifts are truly appreciated and directly support our students and our school, allowing Immanuel to continue to serve this and future generations of students through a classical Christian education. 

We warmly invite you to visit us to see in person how your gift is making a difference in the lives of our students!
