Thank you for supporting students at DMC

DMC is a community of generous families, alumni, parents and  grandparents who together invest in projects of all sizes to benefit our school. From the Lion Fund to capital projects (including a newly renovated Middle School and High School) and endowment to tuition assistance, we invite you to be a part of our mission to  equip minds and nurture hearts to impact the world for Christ.    

Give Today

Our Current Project: DMC Gym +

The renovation of the DMC gym supports the full DMC community, builds relationships, and grows our ability to provide an exceptional student experience. DMC’s home court was installed in 1998 and needs significant updates. Together we can make this a truly special home court, and improve upon the multi-purpose use of this space.


Campaign Priorities

Debt Retirement/Faculty $2.5M (Funded)

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.


Capital Projects $12.3M

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 Lion Fund $6.7M

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.


Tuition Assistance $3M

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.

Endowment and Planned Giving $5M

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.
