Propelling Our Young People to Collegiate and Professional Success

We are grateful for the philanthropic and volunteer support that enables us to achieve our mission and sustain an enriching educational community that propels our young people to collegiate and lifelong personal and professional success.

For over fifty years the dedicated support of parents, grandparents, friends, alumni, foundations, corporations, and community groups has helped us to continually improve our academic and athletic programs, provide opportunities for our faculty, and improve our facilities and campus.

There are many ways to support our school!

Gifts made towards annual giving are unrestricted and allow the school to designate where the funds are needed most.

A restricted gift is designated for a particular purpose, such as capital giving, endowments, academic programs, athletic programs, etc.

Many corporations and foundations offer matching gifts to their employees.  This is an easy way to multiply your individual gift to Tidewater Academy.

Honor your friends and loved ones with a memorial gift contributed to our annual giving fund.  A card will be mailed to the family for whom the memorial gift is made.

Support Tidewater Academy by using different contribution programs such as trusts, bequests, or other planned contribution structures.  Planned giving benefits the school while offering benefactors financial advantages and tax savings.

Contributing material gifts is a wonderful way to help fulfill the needs of the school.  We appreciate all gifts-in-kind.

There are endless opportunities to volunteer your time and talents at our school.  Our Tidewater Parents Association (TPA), Athletic Booster Club, and TeamTA parent organizations are a few of the most popular ways to volunteer your time.

All types of events and fundraisers are hosted during the school year, and your support is vital and appreciated!  As a parent, grandparent, alumni, and school supporter, you will have the opportunity to participate in such fundraisers and events as magazine sales, sausage sales, boston butt sales, the Warrior Country 5K, the Gala Auction, Donkey Basketball, the TA Golf Classic, and more.

For more information regarding gift ideas of any type, please contact Frances Chambers, Head of School at (757) 899-5401, extension 101, or f_joyner@tawarriors.org
