Philanthropy at Topeka Collegiate School includes the Annual Fund in the fall and the Celebration Auction in the spring. The school concentrates its fundraising efforts on these annual endeavors in an effort to limit the number of times we ask our community to support the school. We strongly encourage you to make a commitment to these efforts with what is – for your family – a meaningful gift.
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. Financial Aid for deserving students is supported in part by endowment funds and the Dick Patterson Fund.
In addition to annual fundraising events, philanthropy periodically includes a multi-year capital campaign in order to meet needs that often include building projects or major renovations.
We also welcome planned gifts to our school and would be happy to talk with you about a bequest or whatever planned giving opportunities best fit your goals.
