Contributions to the TASIS Dorado Fund, our school's Annual Fund, serve as unrestricted gifts that are critical to the success of our school and pave the way to meet institutional demands throughout the year. These gifts provide the school with the necessary authority to direct funds to our most pressing needs, including new opportunities and unexpected challenges. Furthermore, it reflects confidence in the leadership of TASIS Dorado and its vision for the future.
Gifts to the TASIS Dorado Fund allow for program expansion above and beyond our planned operations making way for significant innovation and investment across campus. Such gifts support our community via scholarship, professional development, programmatic innovation, facility improvement, and equipment upgrades, among other important needs. As we prepare for future generations, we rely on the generosity of our alumni, parents, and friends who support the school each year.
A Capital Campaign is a concerted effort to raise a substantial amount of funds for a specific project. Typically, a capital campaign takes place over an extended period of time and entails larger pledges to fund long-term projects. The addition of the Louis R. Christiansen Performing Arts Center (PAC) was a direct result of a former TASIS Dorado Capital Campaign.
Currently, TASIS Dorado is closing in on its final fundraising goal of $3M in support of the Capital Campaign for the Wellness & Athletics Center.
A gift to the Endowment is invested according to TASIS Dorado’s policies established by the Board of Directors Finance Committee. Funds are allocated based on the donor’s preference and guided by the School’s Endowment Spending policy.
A gift to the Endowment will directly impact the financial stability of TASIS Dorado’s future.

The Tim Howard "Excellence in Teaching" Award, established in honor of our second Head of School, aims to recognize individual educators or teams of teachers at TASIS Dorado. The School underscores the vital importance of molding the next generation and places great emphasis on high-quality teachers and the importance of talent development and subject matter expertise.
Drawing on revenue from this restricted, endowed fund, the award may be designated annually starting in FY2022 for a teacher or team of educators who demonstrate instructional growth, expertise, creativity, and innovation in their classrooms; who make learning engaging, vibrant, and relevant for students; and whose work and accomplishments are a model for other teachers. The award may be distributed in the form of a cash gift, funding for a passion project, professional learning, travel stipends, or continuing education.
The purpose of the award is to elevate the teaching profession; attract, retain, motivate and inspire great teachers at our School; allow them to share best educational practices with their colleagues; and further enhance the reputation of teachers at TASIS Dorado.

In any given year, Special Projects arise in the lifecycle of our school. For example, 2020 brought forth the need for face shields in the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic. Using our existing resources and talents, TASIS Dorado’s STEAM Fab Lab joined the effort to produce face shields for healthcare professionals, vulnerable patients, and other affected frontline workers. As a community, TASIS Dorado raised over $5,200 and produced more than 3,000 face shields.
