The School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) continues to provide an education deeply rooted in the love of learning, creating a vibrant school community that many of you have collectively helped to build over the years (over 25 years at our Thomasville Road campus and over 9 years at our Centre of Tallahassee campus).  Our students are thriving, our teachers and staff continue to innovate and excite our students and the partnership with our families and the community has been strong, open, and collaborative, but we cannot do this with you and your support.

As you have come to know and love, our SAS Motto is:

We take care of ourselves, each other, and this place.

We ask for your support of the Foundation as it will have a significant impact in how we can take care of each other and our space.  Your support is needed now more than ever before.

You may think that as a public charter school, SAS is fully funded by the state.  This is partly true.  While we do receive state funds, we do not receive the same funding as traditional public schools and a large part of our annual revenue moving forward will rely on the generous giving efforts of our community.  This is why any gift – no matter the size – can create the biggest impact for our beloved SAS family.

By supporting the Foundation, you will fuel:

  • The creation of equitable and sustainable pay for our teachers and administrators, allowing us to retain our exceptional educators, and attract new talent. Afterall, when teachers do better, students do better; and
  • Facility enhancements to our space, providing thriving and safe environments on both campuses that cultivate a love for learning and the very best education for our scholars.

While you may have supported the important efforts led by the PTSA and Wings in the past, giving at the Foundation level supports significant operational costs – including equitable and sustainable pay for our teachers and staff and facility enhancements to both campuses.  Your support will ensure we can keep pace with recent teacher salary raises in our local area and across the state,

The School of Arts and Sciences Foundation is a Florida 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.  Our schools are not run by a for-profit management company and 100% of all donations directly benefit the schools and our mission.

Our Foundation needs to raise $250,000 annually to maintain the SAS philosophy we all know and love; we would love you consideration of a monthly gift.  We have several ways you can give:

All gifts will benefit the SAS Foundation, but please know you can designate to the campus of your choice if you prefer.

With your support we can continue cultivating the next generation of curious minds who will change the world, and we thank you in advance for any investment you make.
