The Next Peak

Support the Campaign

The generous support of alumni, parents, grandparents, and friends like you allows The Thacher School to thrive year after year, providing future generations of intelligent, adventurous, and compassionate students with an education unlike any other.
Our staff and volunteers are excited to work with you to develop a meaningful and impactful capital campaign gift thats right for you. Please submit your information in the form below and a staff member will be in touch to discuss giving opportunities and options. Thank you for helping us reach The Next Peak!

The Annual Fund
Our first and most important responsibility is to support the Annual Fund, which covers about 15 percent of our operating budget. The Annual Fund is an essential component of how we finance the Thacher School. During the course of this capital campaign, our goal is to increase our Annual Fund from $3.5M to $4.5M. Learn more about the annual fund.
The Next Peak Capital Campaign
Over the next two years, we will ask you to make a special gift to the capital campaign—over and above your Annual Fund gift. Gifts to the campaign will be primarily focused on enhancing endowment and financing important improvements to our buildings. Pledges to the campaign can be fulfilled over a five-year schedule.
The Boot Hill Legacy Society
Membership is as simple as informing us of your plan to make a legacy gift of any amount. These gifts, which may also count toward the campaign, can include naming the School as a beneficiary of a 401k, other retirement accounts, or a life insurance policy; future gifts of real estate; or participation in one of several “life income” vehicles. Learn more about legacy giving.
If you'd prefer to contribute to the campaign today, you can Donate Online.
Thanks to strong initial support, we’ve made good progress toward our goals. But we’re entering the most difficult stretch of the campaign. It’s a make or break moment—each and every gift could spell the difference between realizing a transformative initiative or putting it off indefinitely. We hope we can count on your support.
