Annual Fund/The Tallulah Fund
Why an Annual Fund?
The Annual Fund helps to bridge the difference between Tallulah Falls School’s income and expenses. We hope every person who believes in our mission will participate in the Annual Fund. In 2016, the annual fund was renamed The Tallulah Fund.
Why Should I Support The Tallulah Fund?
The Tallulah Fund is an opportunity for alumni, parents, faculty, friends, and organizations to play a critical role in supporting the school’s mission. There are two big reasons why the Annual Fund is important.
- Tuition covers less than 25% of the actual expense of educating a TFS student.
The Talluah Fund infuses student scholarships and special projects. Every year there are a number of projects that we would like to fund that cannot be covered by tuition. We know these projects will make a big difference to our students, and so we ask parents, grandparents, alumni, staff, board and friends to help.
- Your participation in The Tallulah Fund sends a powerful message.
It serves notice to outside foundations, corporations, and other major donors our Tallulah Falls School family believes in the school and is willing to invest in its future. When they see this, they become more willing to be supporters as well. Your participation truly is the most important measure. Any size gift is appreciated and counts equally in our participating goals!
How is the Money Used?
The Tallulah Fund provides scholarship assistance to worthy students and families and supports the school's operating budget by funding strategic priorities. These unrestricted gifts are especially valued as they give the school the flexibility to address areas of greatest need.
