TEP is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 and accepts tax deductible contributions. In contrast to most charter schools, TEP does NOT solicit donations for general operating expenses. This is because a central feature of TEP’s mission is to demonstrate that schools can make a radical investment in teacher equity by reallocating existing public funding. TEP accepts donations for two distinct areas: Alumni Program & Capital Projects.
Unlike traditional public schools that receive a free public facility, New York State charter schools typically must pay for their own. Make a contribution today to support capital costs associated with TEP’s new state-of-the-art middle school facility.
