2023/2024 Annual Giving Campaign

September 11 - October 6

Together We Can Reach Our Goal of $150,000!

The Annual Giving Campaign is our most important fundraiser of the year. So many of the programs offered and loved by students depend on the success of the Annual Giving Campaign. The annual fundraising goal is $330,850 and the goal of the Annual Giving Campaign is to raise $150,000. Will you join us in meeting this goal by making a one-time donation of $1,000 or a recurring donation of $100/month?

Your participation and generosity are needed now more than ever. Funds raised this school year will fund academic and enrichment programs in 2024-2025 and we need your support now to continue offering outstanding programs like those we are funding this school year.  

Let’s Reach Our Goal of $150,000!

This year we are piloting Zeffy, a zero-fee fundraising software platform, for donation and payment processing. This ensures that 100% of your donation will go to the Foundation to help fund academic and enrichment programs for our students! When donating, Zeffy will ask for a donation to help cover their costs as a company. If you do not wish to donate to Zeffy, simply select ‘Other’ from the drop down menu under the 'Confirm your donation' section.

To pay by check: make the check payable to TPES Foundation and mail it to 8350 Cliffridge Avenue, La Jolla, CA 92037, or it can be dropped off at the school office.
