Annual Fund: Making a Difference Every Day

Since our inception, Turning Point School has relied on generosity and active participation from parents, grandparents, Trustees, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends.

Like all independent schools, tuition alone does not cover the cost of educating students at Turning Point School. We rely on meaningful contributions to the Annual Fund, the school's top fundraising priority. Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund are 100% tax deductible and directly invest in:

  • Talented and Dedicated Faculty and Staff
  • Tuition Assistance
  • Professional Development and Research
  • Competitive Athletics Program
  • Robust and Experiential Service Learning Program
  • Technology Advancements and Campus Improvements
  • Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Make a Pledge and Pay a Portion Using Credit/Debit

Use our secure online giving form to make your pledge and pay a portion today, using your American Express, MasterCard, Visa, or Discover Card.

Make a Pledge Payment

Have you already made your pledge, and want to pay a portion of it today? Pledge payments can be made here. You will receive a tax deductible receipt for completed payments.

Donate Appreciated Stock

With the robust stock market, donating appreciated stock provides a double benefit: a tax deduction for the stock's current full market value and no capital gains tax is paid on the appreciation. Complete the Pledge Form and the business office will contact you with details for the transfer.*

Matching Gifts

Some companies elect to match their employee gifts to non-profits, providing an excellent way to double or even triple the value of your gift to the school. Check to see if your employer offers a Matching Gift Program.

Parent Association

For almost half a century, our students have greatly benefited from parents who have given their time, talent, and resources in helping our school maintain a level of excellence to support and enhance our exceptional programs and facilities.The Parent Association (PA) offers a wide range of opportunities for parents to be involved with and support the school, including two fundraising activities: the Hoop-A-Thon, and the Spring Gala. Additionally, parent committees around major events and initiatives such as the Book Fair, Community Service, Grandparents, Teacher Appreciation, and Annual Fund help bring life and energy to our community. Learn more about our PA here.

Major Gifts

Major Gifts help fulfill strategic plans and big dreams. These capital gifts helped fund our new building, field, and outdoor environmental areas. Gifts to Turning Point's new Endowment are a lasting legacy, a commitment to future students, to continuing program innovation, and to other opportunities we can and cannot imagine today.

Transformational gifts to Turning Point come from generous parents, grandparents, alumni families, good friends, and foundations. These gifts provide long-lasting support for the school, benefiting current and future generations of students.

2017-18 Annual Giving

Tax-deductible gifts are an integral part of Turning Point’s overall financial plan. The generosity of our parents, grandparents, alumni, and good friends helps us fulfill specific needs and supports both short- and long-term operations, adding to the ongoing stability, security, and growth of the school.
