Day of Giving

Support Tampa Prep for what it’s been and what it will always be.
A place to Think. Create. Be Yourself. Aspire to Excellence and Go Beyond.  

The 4th Annual Tampa Prep Day of Giving, which supports our Terrapin Fund, is Wednesday, May 1!
Tuition covers 90% of our School’s operating costs, which is why our Day of Giving is so vital for the Tampa Prep experience.

Your support gives us the ability to live our mission.

New this year: You can choose to drop your gift in a specific bucket – Give and support your passion!

Think Bucket: STEM (Enhanced technology and science equipment)
Create Bucket: Arts (Art department field trips, additional theater, music & chorus opportunities)
Be Yourself Bucket: Financial Aid for Students (20% of Tampa Prep students rely on assistance)
Go Beyond Bucket: Professional Development for Faculty (conferences, workshops, certifications)
Aspire to Excellence Bucket: Athletics (venue improvements, equipment & uniform updates, signage)

Building BOLD: Capital Campaign Bucket (the time is NOW to help complete our BOLD Building and be a part of Tampa Prep’s future)

Of course, we always welcome a general gift to our Annual Terrapin Fund, which allows us to put funds where they are most needed.

Thank You again – Your gift is a direct investment in a child’s education!
