Giving Overview

Why give to FPD

Since 1970, FPD has provided a strong, Christ-centered, academically-sound foundation for over 3000 alumni. That number grows every year as new students enter our classrooms seeking a college-preparatory education based on a biblical worldview. However, our mission extends far beyond our campus. FPD educates and equips tomorrow’s Christian leaders so they can change the world for God’s glory.

By giving to FPD, you help achieve that mission and enhance the opportunities for students to grow their God-given abilities.
