Key Annual Fund
The goal of the Key Annual Fund is to build a solid annual giving program that enables TCS to enhance its programs and keep tuition increases minimal. Unrestricted gifts to the Key Annual Fund directly and immediately benefit each student and faculty member as well as every program on campus.
In addition to the financial benefits the school receives from a gift to the Key Annual Fund, participation, at any level is the single strongest factor considered by private and corporate foundations in determining whether or not to lend their support to The Cottage School.
Many foundations will not consider a request for funding if the organization has not achieved 100 percent participation in their Annual Fund by Board, Staff, and Parents.
- The Key Annual Fund Drive kicks off in August of every year.
- Pledges and gifts are solicited from August through May.
- Pledges must be fulfilled by May 31 to be counted in the total.
