The Annual Fund at The Tatnall School helps bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating a Tatnall student.
The fund assists in maintaining quality faculty, small classroom sizes and the facilities and equipment necessary for Tatnall’s unique blend of classroom learning, the arts and athletics.
Each year the campaign is conducted from July 1 to June 30. Unrestricted gifts to the Annual Fund are used to finance the priorities established in the operating budget. Prudent planning has assured that funds raised in a given fiscal year are budgeted for use in the following year. This assures the school remains on solid financial ground.
The campaign is organized through a network of motivated and knowledgeable volunteers who reach out to others, asking them to join in supporting the school. Alumni, current and past parents, grandparents, trustees, faculty and friends of the school are requested to make a gift at a level that reflects their ability and desire. Solicitations are done through personal contacts, phone-a-thons and letters.
Donors to the Annual Fund receive the satisfaction of knowing they are part of developing the next generation. They are also recognized through Giving Clubs.

All donors receive a personal letter of thanks and documentation for tax purposes. All donors are also listed in the Report of Annual Giving, printed each summer. In addition, Founder’s Society level donors are recognized on a plaque in the school lobby and invited to a fall cocktail party hosted by the Headmaster and the Board of Trustees.
Raising tuition to the full amount would put a Tatnall education out of reach for most students. The school values social and economic diversity within its student body. Gifts to the Annual Fund allow the school to continue to provide quality educational opportunities, delivered by a motivated and creative faculty.
