2023-2024 Annual Giving Campaign

Tapestry depends on monetary gifts and volunteer support from its families and friends to provide for its unique programs including expeditionary fieldwork, arts programs, increased technology access, athletics, and the maintenance and growth of its beautiful campus and facilities.

Tapestry Charter School’s Annual Giving Campaign is comprised of gifts from the Tapestry community of families and friends. The campaign runs during the academic school year. Participation by all of our constituents (parents, past parents, alumni, faculty, and staff) is extremely important to our continued success. Donations in any amount will help us reach our annual goal of 100% participation!

There are many ways to give!

  • One-time donation – you can donate online, by cash or check!
  • Monthly giving – sign up online to have a donation come out of your account every month so you don’t have to remember when to give.
  • Matching Donation – Double your impact with a matching donation. Ask your company if they match their employee’s donations!
  • Peer-to-Peer Fundraising – You can work with our Development Officer on setting up a personal fundraising page and ask your friends and family to donate
  • Birthday Fundraiser – On Facebook, you can select a charity to raise funds for on your birthday!
  • Planned gifts – Add Tapestry to your long-term estate or financial plans

The Tyler Brunner Fund

In loving memory of Tyler Brunner (September 13, 1993-October 8, 2022).  Mr. Brunner was an extraordinarily revered school leader, teacher, colleague, coach, friend and student mentor in our special and unique school community.  His boundless positivity, energy and kindness permeated through to anyone who had the good fortune to know him, and it is hard to think of someone who embodied Tapestry, and what we believe and value, more than he did.

Sarah Thorp Acton Scholarship

In honor of our beloved teacher Sarah Thorp Acton (April 12, 1981-March 25, 2013) a scholarship fund has been set up by her family and Tapestry Charter School as of March 2013.

Nick Padilla Scholarship

This scholarship celebrates the memory of a former Tapestry student and traveler, Nick Padilla.  Nick was a person who loved being outdoors and who saw the beauty of nature. He had a unique way of looking at the world and he sought to capture that view with his photography.

The Nick Padilla International Travel Scholarship will be awarded to Tapestry students who best embody Nick’s spirit and interest in travel and photography.   Scholarship recipients will be given financial assistance to allow them to participate in the school’s bi-annual trips to Europe.
