Ways to Give
At The Child’s Primary School (TCPS), we strive to keep tuition as low as possible to make our program available to as many families as possible. Our fundraising allows us to bridge the gap between the cost of offering such small class sizes and the tuition that we charge. There are many ways to give to TCPS, including our Annual Giving Campaign, planned giving, special events, and volunteering.
For our Annual Giving Campaign, you can make your gift in a variety of forms including outright gifts of cash via check or online donation, securities and real estate, or planned giving options, such as bequests and life income plans. Your gift to TCPS is tax-deductible and our Tax ID Number is 33-0018215.
Cash Gifts: A cash gift entitles the donor to receive a charitable income tax deduction in the year the gift is made. Cash gifts may be given for use by the school for all of its programs (unrestricted) or given for a specific program or special project (restricted).
Many employers sponsor matching gift programs that match employee charitable contributions. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and spouses. Most of these programs match contributions dollar for dollar, and some will even double or triple the amount of the gift! Unsure if your company provides this match? You can use our matching-gifts-email-to-hr to send to your HR department.
Gifts of Securities: In most cases, an outright gift of appreciated securities entitles the donor to an income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities and, in the case of securities which have been held for more than a year, the avoidance of the capital gains tax.
A planned gift incorporates philanthropy with estate and financial planning to benefit both you and TCPS. Planned gifts can provide many financial and non-financial benefits to you, including fulfillment of philanthropic goals, tax savings, asset management, income, security, and gifts to family.
We have two main fundraising events per year. They are the Spring Social and Auction Fundraiser and the Jogathon Fundraiser. We encourage all TCPS families to attend and to invite friends and community organizations to participate.
Volunteering your time, talents, and expertise is a valuable gift to the school and allows you the opportunity to get to know other families and be a part of the awesome TCPS community. For more information, please visit our Volunteer Opportunities page.
