Fundraising at Topeka Collegiate School begins with the Annual Fund in the fall. This is considered our “greatest need” fund, and is used to close the gap between the cost of tuition and the expense of operations and financial aid. Our school is committed to a generous financial aid program designed to attract a wide range of students. We believe that the entire community is enriched by social and economic diversity. Over forty percent of our students receive some level of financial aid. We strongly encourage you to make a commitment to Annual Fund with what is – for your family – a meaningful gift.
Our spring semester fundraiser is the Celebration Auction. This is an opportunity for our school to come together as a community to celebrate our success, our impact, and our community. Items are donated to the auction by families and businesses, students contribute class projects, and our teachers offer fun activities that are always in demand.
