The Marin School Annual Fund
At TMS, Every donation makes an impact.
Every donation builds a school that values individualized educational experiences and economic diversity. Reaching 100% parent participation strengthens our case when we apply for gifts from outside sources, because it shows we have the endorsement of 100% of our community.
Our challenge: To have every TMS parent, faculty member, staff member, and Board member give to the Annual Fund in the first 100 days of the campaign.
Thank you in advance for contributing to The Marin School. We are a small community that works together toward the goal of educating the whole student.

What is the Annual Fund?
Our Annual Fund (AF) makes up the difference between tuition and the actual cost of operating the school. The success of this annual solicitation relates directly to faculty salaries, curricular and extracurricular programs, financial aid, site maintenance, and much more. Every gift is appreciated and helps us meet our goal of 100% participation.
We are deeply grateful to all who supported The Marin School in our 2019/20 annual campaign, and to those who continue to support the school, its unique mission, and its students, faculty, staff, and program.
