Share the Gift
of Roots and Wings
“But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.”
“Plant your roots in Christ and let him be the foundation for your life. Be strong in your faith, just as you were taught. And be grateful.”

Who benefits from the Share the Gift Campaign?
Every student and family who attends St. James. Not only does your donation make an education possible for a child, their presence at St. James blesses everyone else as they live, work and play among us.
What is the Goal of Share the Gift?
We have set a goal of $200,000. In fact, the value of tuition aid offered is much higher than that. When you generously support this effort, you directly impact the lives of others.
How much should I give?
You should determine your gift on the basis of prayer and reflection upon the blessings God has provided to you to use to His glory. Every gift is a personal decision and should be determined with a joyful heart that you are making an education possible for one of God’s children.
Where should I send my pledge/gift?
Send your check or order money payable to St. James Lutheran Church and School (with Share the Gift in the memo) to:

Can a donor make a stock gift?
Yes, stock is a convenient way of giving. Many donors make donations with gifts of appreciated securities, thereby enjoying additional tax savings. If a donor is considering a transfer of stock, they should call Martha Bulin at 773.549.1615 for specific instructions.
