The Annual Fund is a fundraising campaign that runs in conjunction with the school’s fiscal year. At TDS, tuition does not fully cover the expenses associated with educating a child. This gap is bridged through generous contributions from our community. The primary mechanism for philanthropy is the Annual Fund. Put another way, Annual Fund proceeds support every child, every day. With your help, TDS is able to:

  • Maintain a low student to teacher ratio
  • Attract and retain an outstanding faculty and staff
  • Support the arts and athletics
  • Continue to upgrade our facilities
  • Offer financial assistance to deserving students

This year’s Annual Fund Goal is $120,000.

How much am I expected to give?

Families should give to the best of their abilities and at a level that demonstrates the value placed on the exemplary education from TDS.

What is a corporation-matching gift?

Many companies, both national and local, offer matching gift programs as a way of increasing the benefits of their employees’ charitable donations. Please inquire with your human resources department about a matching gift.

Why is participation so important?

High levels of participation demonstrate support and a commitment to the education provided by TDS. This year, we strive for 100% participation.
