Zion Lutheran School in Alexandria, MN has been a cornerstone of academic excellence and Christian instruction for over 125 years, reaching students from pre-school through 8th grade. This education is not only for Zion members as over half of the students are outside of the Zion church body. Many former graduates are foundational members and leaders in our Alexandria community and beyond. They are currently serving in our community as firemen, police officers, teachers, engineers, business owners, homemakers, and numerous other vital roles.
Presently, Zion is planning its 7th Annual School Gala and Auction, Reach for the Stars, which will be held April 28, 2018 at the Gathered Oaks Event Center in Alexandria. This event includes both a silent and live auction along with entertainment by the leading improv comedy team in Central Minnesota, The Quad Squad, buffet style meal, and games.
As a nonprofit 503c Corporation, Zion relies on third source funding to keep tuition affordable and a viable option for anyone who seeks quality Christian education. Tuition covers about 1/3 of the cost to educate a child. The congregation provides about 50% of the tuition cost in addition to the operation of the facility. The remainder is provided by fundraising. Please consider supporting the Gala by becoming a corporate sponsor (see back) and/or donating gift certificate(s), or merchandise or service for our silent/live auction, or attending the event!
The Gala is our major fundraiser of the year and we invite you to be a part of this important event. We will gladly pick up your donation or it can be mailed to the address below. Any donation is very much appreciated. We thank you in advance for considering our request and supporting our goal to make Christian education viable to the families in our Alexandria community.
