Giving to TCS

The Children's School is a not-for-profit organization that accepts tax-deductible donations to support a variety of its activities.  You may make a general donation to the school, or earmark your funds for any of the following aspects of our program:


  • Capital and Building Expenses

  • Operations and Programs

  • Faculty Development

  • Scholarship and Tuition Assistance


Annual Benefit

The Children's School holds an annual benefit for families, friends, faculty, alumni and those who support progressive education in our communities. Funds raised from our benefit help bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educational programs at The Children's School, and this year will also help to purchase necessary furnishings for classrooms in our new Oak Park location.

Annual Appeal

The Children's School also sends an annual appeal to friends and families each year before the winter holidays. We're grateful for the amazing support we receive to fund our programs, tuition, and facilities, and hope that you will watch for this important letter in your mailbox, and give as generously as possible to keep The Children's School going strong.
