The TGS Annual Fund is the foundation of the fundraising program at Temple Grandin School. Unrestricted support to the school through the TGS Annual Fund allows us the flexibility to support our students in ways that directly fulfill the vision, mission and values of our organization. Annual fund contributions support the following expenditures that will help us continue to provide our specialized socio-academic program:
- Bonuses and professional development to retain a high-quality teaching staff
- Scholarships to ensure that a TGS education is affordable to families of varying income levels
- Furnishings to create a sensory-friendly learning environment for our students
- Technology to support iStar, Lego robotics, and other STEM programming that will lay a foundation for our students’ future careers
The TGS Annual Fund helps make up the difference between the actual cost of providing a TGS education and the tuition paid by families. Many of our families have already spent tens of thousands of dollars providing early intervention and ongoing therapies for their children, and struggle to afford TGS tuition. Tuition currently covers only 75% of the cost of a TGS education. Your gift to the TGS Annual Fund helps close this gap.
We hope you will consider joining other parents, grandparents, alumni, trustees, faculty and community members in making a gift this year at whatever level is meaningful for you. Your generous support makes a difference in the lives of every TGS student.
