Thank you for supporting students at DMC

For decades DMC has benefited from the generosity of our families.  We have invested your gifts into projects of all sizes and together we have provided our students with Lion’s field, the performance hall, the great room, the wellness center, tuition assistance, athletic uniforms, student technology and more.  In 2020, we launched Impact Tomorrow Today, a $29.5 million, five-year giving plan engaging our entire DMC community in the future of our school. 

We invite you to be a part of DMC’s exciting mission to equip minds and nurture hearts to impact the world for Christ.

Give Today

Impact Tomorrow Today

DMC launched the most ambitious campaign in our school’s history. Impact Tomorrow Today is a $29.5 million, five-year strategic giving plan engaging our entire DMC community to transform the future of our school. 

The campaign focuses on five strategic priorities and includes improvements to academic facilities, capacity for more students, cutting-edge classrooms and technology, investments in curricular and co-curricular programs, the best Christian faculty available, tuition assistance, and a strong financial base from which to operate with confidence. 

"One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts."  
Psalm 145:3-5

Campaign Priorities

Our Faculty $2.5M

Faculty Compensation/Debt Retirement ($2.5M)

The quality of our programming begins with faculty who are passionate about learning and about guiding students to find their God-given purpose. Once our debt is retired, the $550,000 currently allocated for annual debt service will be used for faculty compensation.


The Campus $12.3M

Capital Projects

The DMC campus is a place for educational and spiritual formation. The capital portion of the Impact Tomorrow Today campaign includes renovating existing spaces and adding new spaces in the middle school and high school to maximize the use of our campus.  

At DMC students learn they are uniquely created in the image of God; these news spaces allow the experiences to happen.  The new space has additional STEAM offerings as well as business and technology labs.

Our students are called to be the light of the world. The new 300-seat Chapel will cultivate that identity through large group studies, engaging speakers and events. Enhanced spaces lead to stronger mission delivery.

New and Renovated Spaces 

The Student Experience $6.7M

Lion Fund

The Lion Fund supports the continued enhancement of our academic and co-curricular programs and demonstrates community support of our school’s mission. All donations to the Lion Fund provide immediate resources that directly impact student life now.

  • Unrestricted gifts to the Lion Fund allow DMC to make immediate investments in the student experience. Unrestricted gifts give the most flexibility to accelerate plans for programming, classroom updates, and meeting unexpected expenses such as emergency tuition assistance.

  • Restricted gifts are accepted when they align with our mission and Strategic Plan. Restricted gifts can include full funding of larger projects or support for experiences like mission trips. Donors to the Impact Tomorrow Today plan have expressed interest in restricted gifts for Gospel-centered Bible programming, replacement of the baseball field, and the renovation of the softball field.


Families $3M

Tuition Assistance

Tuition assistance programs provide financial accessibility for families of many income levels. Our school is responsible for fundraising a portion of the Heart of Iowa School Tuition Organization’s funds every calendar year. These gifts allow us to provide needs-based tuition assistance to many of our middle-income, multi-student families.

Future Generations $5M

Endowment/Planning Giving

Endowment gifts are invested permanently to provide financial stability for DMC for generations to come. Generally gifts to the endowment are unrestricted; however, DMC will accept restricted gifts when they align with our mission and strategic plans. The General Endowment Fund Prospectus and Tuition Assistance Endowment Fund Prospectus outline the administrative terms of the funds.
