Frequently Asked Questions
A few answers to common queries
How do I obtain information about mission trips, and how do I sign up to go on a mission trip?
We love having visitors! Whether you want to bring your family, a group from your church, or join another group, we will work with you to find ways you can serve Dario Christian Academy with your unique talents and skills. Contact Abner Solano to discuss dates, costs, and projects.
Contact Abner by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Abner and his family are currently living in Nicaragua and would love to help coordinate your trip.
How do I update my address or payment information?
Send an email message to email@example.com or call our bookkeeper, Becky Gordon, at 425-222-7102. Please do not send credit card or check information via email or text.
Will I receive a year-end tax receipt of contributions for income tax purposes?
Yes. A receipt of your contributions will be mailed to you after the end of each year.
Will I receive information about my sponsored student or teacher?
Yes, we try to mail a photo and letter from your student once or twice a year.
May I send additional financial gifts to the person I sponsor?
- All special gifts received over and above your sponsorship support are pooled and fairly distributed in the school and the community. We are not able to designate gifts to individuals.
- Please remember that prayers are the best gift you can give your individual.
Does my sponsorship guarantee that my student will remain at DCA until graduation?
Due to a variety of personal or academic reasons, even sponsored students may choose (or be asked) to move away from Dario Christian Academy. We cannot guarantee that “your” child will remain at our school until graduation. In the event of your student leaving, we will make every attempt to communicate the reason and assign you a new student.
May I visit the school and meet my sponsored student?
We would love if you came to meet your sponsored student! Visiting the school in person (either as part of a team, individual, or family) is the best way to see how your sponsorship dollars and prayers are being used to bless the life of your student!
