Ways to Give

Equipping Disciples.
Redeeming Culture.

For over 40 years, ODCS has committed itself to equip disciples through exemplary education. Thankfully, we have had faithful partnerships from many who believe deeply in our mission and choose to give of their time, talent, and treasure. We are deeply thankful for the many ways these families and friends support us and the students who benefit from such generosity. We encourage you to explore ways where you can serve the Lord with us as we educate our students towards a life of service for Christ.

Ways To Give with Open Door Christian Schools

Discover where you can make an eternal difference in equipping young people to become disciples where your heart for young people and our ministry opportunities intersect.

As a partner with Open Door Christian Schools, our commitment is to help you fulfill your calling and practice your faith. Explore the many ways you can make an eternal difference:

Taxpayers now have a cost-free way to make a significant contribution to the students at Open Door Christian Schools. Thanks to Ohio's new state tax credit, individuals who contribute to a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) can receive a dollar-for-dollar state tax credit for up to $750. Furthermore, you may designate your gift for ODCS students only.


Go to our Pray With Us page to learn more about how you can be an active participant in our prayer ministry. We need prayer partners who consistently place the efforts of our school in front of our Lord.
