Support racial ethnic schools and colleges
The students, faculty and staff of PC(USA)-related Racial Ethnic Schools and Colleges are in need of both spiritual and material support. Here are some ways you or your congregation can help.
Be a benefactor
Give to the Christmas Joy Offering
Taken annually at Christmas throughout PC(USA) Congregations, half of the proceeds go to the Racial Ethnic Schools and Colleges. The other half of the proceeds go to support the Board of Pensions.
Directly support a Racial Ethnic School or College
Direct donations of funds, goods and/or services are welcomed by all the Racial Ethnic Schools or Colleges. For more information about direct giving, contact each institution's development office or the PC(USA) office of Racial Ethnic Schools and Colleges.
Include a Racial Ethnic School or College in your planned giving
Contact the development office of any RESC or the Presbyterian Foundation for more information about planned giving.
Support Extra Commitment Opportunities
Extra Commitment Opportunities are a way to specially designate a church's or individual's PC(USA) Mission Giving. Several ECOs support various programs at the Racial Ethnic Schools and Colleges.
Be a volunteer
Many of the Racial Ethnic Schools and Colleges rely on PC(USA) volunteers for everything from staffing the library, tutoring students, maintaining the grounds to onsite child care. For more information on volunteering, contact the PC(USA) Mission Volunteer Office.
Be an employer
The graduates of Presbyterian-related colleges and universities can be an ideal addition to your work force. If you are in a position to recruit or hire recent college graduates, don't forget the students at Presbyterian-related racial ethnic schools or colleges.
