Giving to Tower Hill
Tower Hill School is a great place to be!
 
At Tower Hill, there are more reasons than ever to show your support and give to the Tower Hill Annual Fund.
 
Since 1919 Tower Hill students have enjoyed the strongest teachers, the most challenging curriculum and the best facilities in the region. As we start our 100th school year, our sense of pride for our school has grown ever stronger.
 
Financial sustainability is necessary for all independent schools today. Each year we reach out to our alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends to seek support for the Annual Fund.  The Annual Fund is a critical component of Tower Hill School’s operating budget from July 1 – June 30, and each gift helps ensure that we continue the levels of excellence for our students and faculty in academic exploration, artistic expression, athletic achievement and service learning. All gifts of all sizes are appreciated.
 
Thank you for ensuring that the feeling of excitement, energy, and joy that Tower Hill students experience every day at the school continues for years to come.
