Ways of Giving

The contribution team helps to build and maintain meaningful community connections and oversee fundraising programs that ensure the TMSA community has the resources necessary to provide the best experience for students, parents, and faculty. Every member of the TMSA family has something to contribute to our community. Whether you are an alum, a parent of a current student, a grandparent or community member, we are eager to connect you in a meaningful way with our school. It is your involvement that helps create the vibrant, dynamic, and enriching environment our students grow and develop within. We hope you will reach out to learn how you can get involved with our efforts.

Annual Fund

Like most Independent Schools, tuition alone does not cover the full cost associated with a TMSA education. At TMSA, tuition makes up 85% of our operating budget leaving a gap that is filled, in part, thanks to the generosity of the TMSA community. Annual giving truly is the cornerstone of TMSA’s fundraising efforts. Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund impact every aspect of the TMSA experience. They strengthen our academic program, provide faculty with professional development opportunities, and ensure our faculty has the resources necessary in the classroom to provide the most robust experience possible. Put quite simply, Annual Fund gifts enable TMSA to advance and deliver on our promise to develop each student to his/her fullest potential.

Each year hundreds of members of the TMSA community, including parents, faculty, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, and friends of the school, are invited to participate in the Annual Fund. This annual fundraising effort is launched in the fall and concludes with the school’s fiscal year on June 30th.

Volunteer Opportunities

We welcome parents, faculty, grandparents, alumni and alum parents to join our fundraising efforts through volunteer opportunities on the Development Committee and Financial Aid Fundraising Committee. These committees dedicate their time to the important work of volunteer fundraising. Whether you have only a few hours a year or a few hours a week, we have opportunities for you to get involved.

TMSA is a tax-exempt 501(c)3 organization and contributions are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
