Where Do Contributions Go?
- Annual Giving Fund
The cornerstone of TMS funding is the Annual Giving Fund, which supports every aspect of our school and the academic excellence for which we are known. The Annual Giving Fund provides support for current operations, and underwrites the costs of faculty salaries, financial aid, teaching supplies, maintenance and the daily running of a school. Since tuition only provides about 85% of the cost of educating our students, we depend on contributions through the Annual Giving Fund to close this gap.
- TMS Endowment
Gifts to endowed funds are placed in a permanent fund, where the principal is invested and only the income and dividends earned are spent. Endowment income is used to support scholarships, faculty and staff pensions, financial assistance to deserving students and institutional planning. Individuals may make a gift of any amount to The Montessori School’s endowment fund.
