The collective support from alumni, parents, faculty, trustees and friends is at the heart of TJ’s culture. Your contributions help to fulfill our mission and ensure that the school’s annual, capital, and endowment priorities are met to ensure that TJ continues to provide the strongest possible academic background. Philanthropic support reflects the relationships that members of the School community maintain with the school. Without the generous support received from visionary leaders since TJ’s founding in 1946, the school would be unable to flourish and inspire the world with beauty and intellect.
