Why Give to Touchstone Academy
As a small, not-for-profit, independent school, we receive no outside funding and rely instead on the support of our community. Our gratitude, as a result, knows no bounds!
Why do we need additional resources above and beyond our tuition?
It’s a good question.
It’s because tuition and fees only cover about 90% of our expenses — things like salaries, field trips and classroom supplies. The gaps — things like innovative new technology or equipment, professional development, and necessary upkeep and improvements to our building - require ongoing fundraising efforts.
In addition, as an inclusive school that seeks socio-economic diversity, we manage a robust Financial Assistance program that provides needs-based funding for families who are interested in a Touchstone education but may not be able to afford it.
Ways to Give
We welcome support for all our parent-led fundraising campaigns. The most significant of these is our annual community learning festival held at TD Station, the Amazeatorium. Donors can sponsor a bundle of tickets to be given to children or families who would not be able to attend the event otherwise. Supporting the Amazeatorium is a wonderful way to support Touchstone and help us provide a day of enriched learning for the wider community at the same time!
We issue tax receipts and look forward to thanking you for your generosity and support!
