Tenacre is a small close-knit community where every student and every family is known and valued. Tenacre parents are involved in all aspects of the life of the school and give in many different and meaningful ways. We take pride in the fact that all of our families make a difference at Tenacre by giving of their time, talent, and treasure.
Like most independent schools, Tenacre is funded through tuition income, endowment income and annual unrestricted contributions. Voluntary contributions to the Annual Fund are an essential component of the school's budget and help to bridge the 25% gap between tuition revenue and the actual cost of educating a child at Tenacre. Giving to the Annual Fund presents a special opportunity for all in our community (current parents, alumni, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff and friends) to come together to have an immediate impact on the school. Every gift—of every size—makes a difference!
Tenacre has been fortunate to enjoy generous philanthropic support for generations. We appreciate and thank all in our community for your past support. Every gift of time, talent or treasure makes possible everything that is extraordinary about Tenacre.
