What is the TPS Annual Fund?

Fulfill Our Mission
Every year we rely on the generosity of our community to fulfill the TPS mission: to inspire students to become life-long learners and to prepare students for a changing world.  The TPS Annual Fund directly supports this mission for every child at TPS by providing critical funding for exceptional programs, individualized attention, enlightening opportunities, a diverse student body, and outstanding faculty! 
The TPS Annual Fund is the school's largest annual fundraising effort. Funds raised during this annual appeal accomplish two primary goals. First, these gifts provide support for the current year’s operating budget, allowing us to sustain and update curricula, offer competitive salaries to faculty, and maintain our historic 19th Century campus for 21st century learning. Secondly, the TPS Annual Fund allows us to explore new possibilities each year for enriching our community, including new programming, added technology and professional development.

The Bottom Line?

Fill the Gap
As in most independent schools, there is a "gap" in the School's annual budget between tuition revenue and the full cost of providing all the programs and resources necessary to fulfill our mission for each child.

Each year we encourage charitable, tax-deductible giving from trustees, parents, grandparents, friends, alumni and their parents as well as the administration, faculty, and staff of TPS. We always strive for 100% participation.

We hope you will please consider making a secure online gift or making a pledge to the TPS Fund today. Thank you for your support of our exceptional school to help make a difference in the lives of children.
