Endowments Leave A Legacy  

Endowments are not consumed. Donors are giving a gift that will make a difference for years to come. Your gift to the Tustin Public Schools Foundation endowment, whether as a memorial, a recurring gift, or a planned gift, will continue to express your valiues and generosity for future generations.


Currently, 90 cents of every dollar raised by the Tustin Public Schools Foundation funds programs that serve nearly 24,000 K-12 students at 28 Tustin Unified schools in Tustin, North Tustin, and parts of Irvine and Santa Ana. The TPSF Legacy Endowment was created to grow TPSF's endowment fund to cover all operating expenses of the Foundation so that 100% of every dollar raised will benefit Tustin Unified students.

To accomplish this, or goal is to double our current endowment fund of approximately $2 million by 2020. This will result in an additional $100,000 to support Tustin Unified students, independent of all other TPSF annual fundraising.
