The Kaarto Christian School Fund was established in 2018 to provide Pre-K or K-12 tuition assistance to families who cannot afford a Christian education on their own.
The Kaarto Christian School Fund was inspired by Norman and Char Kaarto, the children of Finnish immigrants in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Norman and Char always had a deep relationship with God. Whether it was Char cooking for the church potluck, Norman playing his guitar and singing in the choir, donations, or just regular church attendance, they always strived to show their friends and family that God loves and blesses his faithful servants. A Christian education can help keep a family’s faith strong.
