Spirit of Philanthropy at Thomas Jefferson School

At Thomas Jefferson School, we are grateful to have past and present families, friends, and alumni contribute generously to support the mission of our school.  It is through their generosity that we are able to provide the strongest possible academic background to all of our students.  We rely on the "spirit of philanthropy" from our TJ community to maintain a diverse student body, enrich our programs, and improve our facilities.

Your gift is important, and no gift is too large or too small. There are various ways that you can proudly support TJ:

  • The TJ Fund - this annual program is the cornerstone of philanthropy at TJ. Funds from annual giving are generally unrestricted, which means they are used mostly for scholarships and faculty professional development.  
  • Planned Giving - is a one-time planned gift made in lifetime or at death.
  • Capital Campaign - is an intensive effort designed to raise a specified sum of money for a particular project or purpose. We are not currently running a Capital Campaign. 

Your gift will convey a powerful message, one that says you believe in and support the mission of our community. We are grateful for your "spirit of philanthropy" and could not do what we do without your support. To learn more about how to get involved, or for instructions on how best to structure your gift, contact Kathleen Kelly in the Development Office at 314.843.4151 or
