Why I Give
Last year, The Philadelphia School Fund (our Annual Fund) began asking its donors why they choose to give. This has been a wonderful opportunity for us to learn what members of our community value most about TPS. These stories capture the essence and spirit of our school.
The Philadelphia School Fund dollars go to work immediately to cover the most pressing needs of the school.
Gifts to The Philadelphia School Fund support:
- Our outstanding Faculty’s compensation and professional development
- Cutting edge technological resources, teaching supplies, and books
- Experiential education programs including Seed to Table, SCEE, and numerous class trips
- Our ability to keep our moderate tuition and a robust financial aid program that supports our commitment to socioeconomic diversity
Here is a glimpse into some of the thoughtful and powerful reflections current and past parents, alumni, grandparents, and faculty and staff have shared:
Our faculty is truly the heart and soul of TPS. It is due, in large part, to them that we continue to be an extraordinary institution that holds curiosity, creative thinking, and collaboration at the center of everything we do. The fact that 99% of our faculty and staff participated in The Philadelphia School Fund in the 2014-15 school year speaks volumes of the the mutual love and appreciation that exists between TPS and its faculty and staff. At TPS, we believe in working together to ensure that resources are in place to support an environment where everyone can be their best. You are an important part of this partnership.
In that spirit, we invite you to join us in supporting The Philadelphia School Fund. Our goal for the 2015-2016 campaign is to reach even higher in developing and enriching the TPS experience for our children and generations to come.
Together, we can exceed last year’s record parent participation rate of 71.2%. Please remember that no gift is too small and every gift will make a difference
