FAQ about the Helps Fund and Helps Fund Scholarship

What is the Helps Fund and Helps Fund Scholarship?

It is a fund set up in order to supply a creative, God-honoring means of reducing the overall cost of tuition for students desiring to attend Ellerslie Discipleship Training programs in Windsor, Colorado.

Who is the Helps Fund Available to?

At present, the Helps Fund is only available for students attending the Ellerslie Classic Training and the Ellerslie Advanced Training summer programs.

How does the Helps Fund actually work?

We have been able to reduce the cost of tuition for every student because of our Helps Fund, thus providing “scholarships” to every student who applies. This reduction in tuition is now updated on the training websites (for example the original tuition for the Ellerslie Classic on-campus was $6495 but is now, because of the Helps Fund, $3950). There is no longer a need a apply for a specific scholarship or aid as every student automatically has this Helps Fund Scholarship applied to their account.

We are also able, due to the Helps Fund, to extend a no-interest payment plan for a portion of the tuition due. The final $1200 of tuition (regardless of on-campus, off-campus, or family tuition) can either be paid prior to the start of training, or can be paid using a six month payment plan starting after the on-site portion of the training). For example …

How Does an Incoming Ellerslie Student Take Advantage of the Helps Fund?

Every student’s tuition has already been significantly reduced by the Helps Fund, thus there is no longer a need to apply separately for the Helps Fund and Scholarship.

How is the Helps Fund funded?

The Helps Fund is funded by Christians that have a passion for seeing other Christians attend an Ellerslie training program. As a result, they give specifically to this Fund to see others have this opportunity. These gifts are given to Ellerslie Mission Society earmarked for use in the Helps Fund. And, yes, since Ellerslie Mission Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit charity, these gifts are tax-deductible. If you would like to give to the Helps Fund please click here.

DONATE TO THE HELPS FUND

Can a donor give to the Helps Fund to help with a specific student’s tuition?

A donor can certainly give to help cover a specific student’s tuition costs, but we would not be able to supply a tax-deductible receipt for such a gift. In the accounting sense, such a gift would be deemed payment against tuition costs. However, if a donor gives directly towards the Helps Fund, we can supply tax-deductible receipts for those gifts as they are given without specificity toward a specific student and are given towards the general purpose of building the Helps Fund.
