In 2014, an Endowment Fund was created by a group of enthusiastic donors who wanted to bless the school and honor one of their friends, Mr. Frank Trane. Mr. Trane was personally responsible for erecting the cross on the hill in Palm Desert that is a community landmark for all to see. Consequently, this year, $3,000 scholarships were awarded to five students who best exemplify the personal qualities of Mr. Trane, as determined by the Selection Committee. All K-8 students are eligible to apply in the Spring of each year, and interviews are conducted with each finalist before the selection is made and announced by the end of the school year. For more information or to donate, please contact the Development Office.
With a life of its own, the ECD (“Every Child Deserves”) Scholarship Program has provided over $2M in scholarships to deserving students (K-8) since its inception in 2004. Birthed from atop a local billboard by Mr. DeLair (that’s a story in and of itself), scholarship funds are raised each year from churches, foundations, businesses, and individuals who “sponsor” one or more students because they believe every child deserves an education at King’s. Their identity is not known to the families they support, but their generosity changes lives forever. Sponsorships are available for $7,400 (KING’S CROWN), $3,700 (KING’S KNIGHT), and $2,600 (KING’S COURT) and can be paid annually or monthly. For more information or to sponsor a student, please contact the Development Office.
This has been one of the most popular events in the history of King’s Schools because of its fun-filled nature for the whole family. We rent out the local bowling alley for the day and students are given incentives to recruit “Lane Sponsors” that make-up the majority of money raised that day. Raffles, Bowl-Offs, and other activities help to make this event successful for the school in its efforts to raise funds needed for scholarships and other designated needs.
