Today, when you go to the grocery store, dine at a restaurant or make a purchase with a chequing or PayPal account or credit/debit card, you can be giving to HCA. When you sign up to create a Donate Your Change RoundUp Giving account and direct your giving to us, you'll give automatically every time you spend.
We love the easy, organic, ongoing quality of DYC RoundUp Giving. We believe you'll love how easy it is to give without giving up control. You give as much as you want. You set the limits. You change your setup features as often as you like to accommodate your giving style.
You enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you give a little every time you spend to support CHRISTIAN EDUCATION in Nova Scotia.
MESSAGE from our Head of School SHAUN ALSPACH:
HCA has a long history, and will have a long future, but we all must act now!
Over the past several years our public school system has experienced significant challenges in spite of the best efforts of many staff who are pushed beyond capacity. During this same time period, the public system has decided to focus on reinforcing many concepts and ideologies that are in stark contradiction to Christian values.
Therefore, it is vital that we expand Christian Education during this time in order to provide an accessible, strong alternative to any family who desires to enroll their children in a school that uses its 1000 hours of annual influence to reinforce Biblical values, teach in alignment with Christian principles, and train students to a high academic level. This school is Halifax Christian Academy, and with no government funding, we need your support to be able to increase the impact we can have on young lives.
Through DYCC we can keep HCA STRONG, which will allow us to focus on what is important, our students! Your contribution allows us to more effectively nurture them, teach them, and disciple them, as they develop their own walk with Jesus. We strive to create an environment where students develop a reliable moral compass and a heart for others.
Support our Annual Giving Plan today with Donate Your Change, and strengthen Christian Education, so we can be a voice of truth!
Your donations through the Donate Your Change system - are going to also allow lower income families to attend HCA, through our Bursary Program.
We ask everyone who has ever been affiliated with HCA, or sees the benefits of a strong Christian School in HRM, to sign up for Donate your Change.
Thank you for partnering with us in equipping students to develop a love for learning and an unshakable faith!
Shaun Alspach, Head of School

Established 2016, Donate Your Change is dedicated to helping non-profit organizations raise the funds necessary to make a positive difference in our culture, both in the US and Canada. We are particularly interested in supporting non-profits engaged in providing food and shelter for the poor, finding cures for diseases, and those that are providing encouragement and vocational training for the underemployed or unemployed.
Donate Your Change employs a technology-based approach that is unique and highly sustainable. Funds are raised by participating, licensed organizations without requiring people to change anything about their lifestyle or day-to-day activities and they are raised 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. All funds generated through Donate Your Change are tax receiptable since our clients are registered charities.
Donate Your Change believes small change can make a big impact. Fundraising no longer has to be restricted to those with large bank accounts. Because virtually anyone at any income level can participate as a donor using our software, donor fatigue is eliminated for both the donor and the organization.
