  • Annual Giving

    Your donations to our Annual Fund support the people, programs and physical plant that make Touchstone the incredible educational success it has become. Tuition alone will not deliver these improvements as it currently covers only 80-90% of our annual operating budget. Over the past three years, one hundred percent of the Board of Trustees and staff of Touchstone participated in the Annual Fund as donors. The Annual Fund supports the caring and dedicated teachers who provide the nurturing environment in which children learn and grow.In addition, your gift:

    • Is tax deductible to the full extent of the law
    • Supports field trips, including the Farm School and Appalachian Trail extended trips
    • Brings professionals into our school for special programs, such as dance instructors and visiting musicians
    • Supports our financial aid program
      Demonstrates to foundations that we have significant support within our community, which makes those foundations more willing to provide additional support
    • Improves children’s classroom experience by allowing us to hire more teacher’s aides
    • Increases our program budgets for every classroom

    “What was most important to me about my years at TCS was learning who I am as a student, a friend, a community member, and a person. I was able to take this knowledge into the world with me, and I can honestly say that I take Touchstone with me into every day of my life.”
