Think of a snowflake

Snowflakes are tiny, delicate, beautiful pieces of crystal. Every snowflake is unique. Yet amazing things can happen if you put enough snowflakes together. Snowstorms, like they are experiencing the Northeast at the moment, can become a very powerful force of nature.

A single donation to the TIS Fund is like a snowflake. Every gift is beautiful because of its intent to support our students. Every gift is unique because every donor makes a gift for different reasons based on personal circumstances. The TIS Fund has impact when we all combine together to support the school.

Our goal is a full blizzard of 100% of our parents and faculty to contribute to the TIS Fund and/or the Special Appeal. Currently, we have a light dusting of snow with 30% participation.

As you read about the East Coast snow storms or as you prepare a ski getaway, remember it all starts with one snowflake or a single donation. Let it snow!
