Your donation to TSA’s Annual Fund:

  • Covers the gap between tuition and the real cost per student
    – approximately $2,000 per student.
  • Sustains and improve academic, artistic, and athletic programs.
  • Supports teachers’ salaries and benefits.
  • Preserves our nurturing small school environment.

 

Please support the Sharon Academy by
making a gift to the annual fund today!

This year TSA’s annual fund goal is $250,000. The Annual Fund provides essential support to keep TSA thriving.

The Sharon Academy is a public/private hybrid. Unlike most other independent schools or public schools, TSA cannot simply set our tuition based upon the cost of educating our students. We keep our tuition low in order to remain financially accessible. 

In order to keep our commitment to our low tuition, we count on the support of our friends and families.You can make an online gift to The Sharon Academy Annual Fund by clicking on the link above or you may send in a check or credit card number directly to TSA. Click here to download a pdf of our annual fund form to print out and send to:

More Ways to Give

Monthly Giving

Increasingly, TSA supporters have begun to make a monthly gift through their checking account or credit card. It’s much easier for many people to spread their gift over time and monthly giving helps TSA. To set up a monthly gift, you can click here for the pdf of the form to send in, or contact Jenn Hayslett to set it up at jhayslett@sharonacademy.net or 802-236-9598.

Bridge-the-Gap Gifts

If you are able, please consider covering the cost of our annual tuition gap ($2,000 per student) for one or more students. You can pay this as a one time gift or you can spread it out over the course of a year. $165 a month covers TSA’s tuition gap for one student. You can click on the giving link above to make an online gift or use the pdf of the giving form and send in.

Special Projects

There are many exciting opportunities that TSA hopes to make possible for our students. However, many of these are not covered within our modest budget. Should you wish to make a special gift in support of furthering our work, in addition to annual support to help us cover current expenses, please see our Faculty’s Wish List.

Endowment

The Sharon Academy Endowment provides a permanent source of income for The Sharon Academy.  By giving to TSA’s Endowment, you can help ensure your giving will benefit TSA and our students in perpetuity. To make a gift to endowment, please contact Jenn Hayslett at 802-236-9598 or jhayslett@sharonacademy.net.

Honor Your Senior

You are invited to honor a TSA student’s graduation by making a special give in their name. When you make a gift commemorating the graduation of a senior, TSA will send the graduate a special certificate informing them that a gift has been made in their honor without disclosing the amount of your gift. You can write a special congratulatory message to the graduate and your personalized message will be featured on their certificate. Gifts to the Honor Your Senior program also count as parent participation in the annual fund. Gifts of all sizes are gratefully accepted. Honor Your Senior cards are with Cynthia Masterman at the high school front desk and will  be available at graduation, or contact Jenn Hayslett at jhayslett@sharonacademy.net with questions or request for form to be emailed.

Gifts in Honor

You may make a gift to TSA in honor of an individual, couple, family or organization. TSA will acknowledge your gift and will also inform the individual for whom a gift has been made without disclosing the gift amount. You may enclose a personal message with this gift.

Gifts in Memory

Gifts made in memory of a loved one in support of The Sharon Academy are very special. You may enclose a personal message with this gift. When we receive a gift made in memory of a person who has passed, we inform the family of the gift without disclosing the amount and share any messages that have been included with the contribution.

Legacy and Planned Giving

Legacy and planned giving refers to giving through a bequest, will, estate plan, or life income gifts, such as an annuity. These gifts are planned during a donor’s lifetime and then the full gift is realized upon the donor’s passing. Click here for more information.
