We are committed to creating a Culture of Giving. We define a Culture of Giving as an “all in” culture that is evident through the whole TMS journey and experienced in a similar way in all parts of the school. At the heart of this Culture of Giving is good connections with parents, building I Am Known into everything we do, providing clear communications and using inclusive language. A Culture of Giving clearly places equal value on the many ways in which our community can engage with the School. Our Culture of Giving focuses on the concept of Time, Talent and Treasure.
Treasure, of course, refers to financial donations to TMS. We are an independent, not-for-profit organization with charitable status. This means that the majority of the school tuition is used to cover the costs associated with the school’s day-to- day operations. TMS relies on the generous support of our families to raise funds to assist with the development of new and existing facilities and the enhancement of programs. TMS offers two ways to support TMS financially: Annual Giving or the Capital Campaign.
Annual Giving donations support a specific need at the School. As part of our Strategic Plan, all donations from now to 2021 will support the TMS Building our Significance Capital Campaign.
For more information on this year’s special Annual Giving Challenge, called the Year of the Build, which will coincide with our campus construction, click here.
TMS launched the Building our Significance Capital Campaign in 2017. Capital Campaigns are special appeals to raise large sums, typically for long term improvements such as our new Campus Development Plan. We are well underway with the planning for these changes and, thanks to the support of our families, we are already making significant progress towards our goal of creating beautiful new spaces to animate the work of our students.
