Current Need

Destined For Grace has had an incredible year and we are happy to see our school growing.  Due to our expansion of an additional grade level each year we are beginning to outgrow our current location.  We are in the early stages of meeting with a contractors to begin building a second school on the four acre property owned by Destined for Grace. This location will meet the needs of our secondary students to start, but we hope to eventually have all grades, Kindergarten- 12th grade, attending at this site. The entire project will cost about $100,000.  We will build as we are able and our first project beginning August 2014 will be a well and fence on the property.

We can always use general donations for ongoing programs at our school to provide our students with a well rounded education.
