2018 Annual Giving Campaign

September 24 - October 19

Together We Can Reach Our Goal of $170,000!


The TPES Foundation was created over 30 years ago to fill in the gaps left by the district, state, and federal budgets. Among the gaps filled by the Foundation include two full-time classroom teachers, school counselor, classroom supplies, Science in the Garden, Technology, Spanish Language, and weekly Art, Music/Theater/Dance, and PE classes. Along with the highest caliber teachers, your generosity is what makes our school exceptional.

The Annual Giving Campaign is our most important and cost-effective fundraiser of the year. This year, we are again running the campaign for only one month. Our goal for The Giving Tree Campaign is $170,000, so please give today!

We are asking for $100/month per child, but please know that every donation, of every size, is deeply appreciated.

A message from TPES Foundation's President


Our school’s most important fundraiser, The Giving Tree, is made possible through the generosity of our community.

We all give our time and energy to TPES because we believe so deeply in the impact of the foundation funded programs on the growth and development of our kids. As a community, we have been able to come together and provide our kids with additional teachers (full time and part time), counselor time, and enrichment classes that promote excellence in the curriculum (art, music, PE, technology, Spanish, and Running club) and hands-on learning experiences (Garden, Science Discovery Day).

The excellence of Torrey Pines is what influenced most of us when choosing where to live and where to send our kids to school. As TPES Foundation, we hope you will join us and choose to donate to our Annual Give Campaign. We ask that you might consider adding another leaf to The Giving Tree with a donation from your family in whatever amount feels comfortable.  EVERY DOLLAR COUNTS!

With gratitude,

--Claire Adida, Foundation President
