The 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. It runs from a November launch date through late spring. 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!

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.
