Annual Giving - THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Thank you so much to the parents of 230 TIS students who donated to the Annual Giving campaign this school year! We have achieved 59% participation and raised$38,000 to support teachers and classroom resources for the school!  This was just a hair under last year's record numbers!

All donors are recognized by personal thank you letters,  on lists outside of each classroom and in the fundraising report this fall.  If you donated but have not received a thank you letter, there is a chance that your gift did not make it all the way - please contact me.

Parent donations to Annual Giving are really important no matter the amount donated.

  • The Annual Giving participation percentage is the single biggest indicator sought by foundations to determine if we have the support of our community

  • The actual funds donated go directly to support teachers and classroom materials for the children.
