Over the years, Thornton Creek Parent Group’s Annual Appeal has grown into the main source of funding for our annual operating budget for the year ahead. We ask you to consider the value you place on our school and to make a direct, tax deductible donation to support it. We understand this isn’t an option for everyone, and that’s part of why it’s so important that those who can give, do.

Thank you for considering a donation to the Thornton Creek Parent Group!

While the Annual Appeal occurs in the fall of each year, families are welcome to make a donation any time. Paying through PayPal, allows you to either use a credit card or your PayPal account, and offers the choice to make a one time, or recurring donation. Alternatively, checks can be dropped off in the front office, or mailed to:

Thornton Creek Parent Group
7712 40th Avenue NE
Seattle, WA 98115

The Thornton Creek Parent Group is a 501-C organization. Tax ID number: 501-C- 91-1037596.

Why We Fundraise

We raise money to supplement the SPS budget in order to support every child’s learning. Approximately 80% of the funds we spend each year are spent directly in the classroom. Each year we have an Annual Appeal, which funds our annual budget by collective fundraising. TCPG does not collect dues, and donations are voluntary. We believe that everyone has something to offer. As our Expeditionary Learning principles say, “We are crew, not passengers.” Whatever you bring, we’re glad you’re here!

SUPPORT OUR SCHOOL Through the Annual Appeal, the Thornton Creek Parent Group (that’s YOU) raises the money to continue our school’s unique academic mission, our arts programs, and more.

BOOST TEACHER IMPACT Academic assistants team up with our amazing Thornton Creek teachers to provide critical classroom support.

SUSTAIN EXTRAORDINARY LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES The Mary Cooper Library, the annual Winter Bazaar, engaging classroom expeditions — these important programs help make up the fabric of our school. Without your contributions, these and other programs are not possible.
