From our 2021-2022 Annual Fund Co-Chairs
Dear Eagle Families,
The school year is off and running, faculty and staff are now steadfast in their routines, providing the best educational experience that the Topeka area can offer. Although still masked, one can’t help but notice all of the smiling eyes throughout the halls. Over one month into the school year, exponential growth has already taken place in the education of our children. This growth cannot take place without your generosity.
As co-chairs of this year’s Annual Fund, we believe the theme “Grow” is fitting to the culture of Topeka Collegiate. This is the place where the deep roots of academic excellence are planted and nurtured. It was clear from the moment we walked into the building five years ago that Topeka Collegiate would give our children a unique learning experience that fosters critical thinking, curiosity, and a lifelong love of learning. Topeka Collegiate needs our generosity to continue its amazing work while growing for the future.
Because Topeka Collegiate is an independent school, we must raise funds in support of the daily operating budget. As you know, Annual Fund is the school’s yearly campaign to raise funds to make up the difference between costs and tuition. In our case, tuition covers only about 83% of our costs, and tax-deductible contributions help bridge this gap. The caliber of the Topeka Collegiate experience depends greatly on the resources available to the school.
Please consider being part of our growth, as we launch this year’s Annual Fund campaign. Beginning October 1, parent volunteers serving as Class Captains will be reaching out to encourage 100% participation. We ask that you make your commitment on the pledge card you will receive in the mail during October. You can pay right away or over time. Your gift is 100% tax-deductible. The first 50 families to pledge or donate will be put in a drawing for an entire month’s free reserved parking near the entrance.
We share your excitement about the ongoing growth of our children’s academic experience. We ask that you consider how you can fit into this year’s Annual Fund campaign. What can you do to help us GROW?
Grady and Lizzi
