UPDATE FROM FOX VALLEY LUTHERAN HS


Financial Focus

Congregational offerings remain strong, and because of this, at February's General Board meeting the tuition increase was set at 4%—the lowest increase in years. We pray this support for current and future FVL students continues. Please remember FVL in your prayers and gifts as we strive to meet our goals.

  • Our Let the Children Come mortgage payment comes due on October 31 each year. At the halfway point this year, 52% of the needed donations have been given. May the Lord continue to bless our efforts! Interested in providing a match gift for our annual Giving Day? Contact our Mission Advancement Office.
  • As the school year ends, Tuition Assistance needs to grow. Your generous gifts help families in need. Every gift counts!
  • The FVL Foundation helps donors leave a lasting legacy. Our goal is to raise our $4.5M in assets to over $5M by 2025.

2021-22 Budget to be Adopted in May

On February 22, FVL’s General Board was introduced to the 2021-22 budget. Key elements in the budget process include enrollment projections, staffing decisions, and church commitments for the upcoming year. Next year’s enrollment is projected between 662-672 students. Last year it was decided to move budget approval from the February meeting to the May meeting.

This will provide a more accurate picture of enrollment and budget figures. A 2% salary increase was approved for faculty and staff. Also approved was a tuition increase of 4%—the lowest amount in over five years. In this budget preview, the Federation churches would support just over 13% of the cost of operating the high school.
