Donate to TEP

TEP is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 and accepts tax deductible contributions. 

Here are ways you can support TEP's new facility:

1. BUY A BRICK FOR $125. Your name will immediately appear on an innovative digital donor wall in our new facility! You may donate online or by mailing a check here.

 Naming opportunities are still available for the kitchen and café, gymnasium, and rooftop playyard. Inquire by emailing or calling 347-778-0601 to request a meeting with the Principal.


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 Solicits Donations for Two Distinct Areas:
  1. The cost of our school's facilities or otherwise known as Capital Projects. In contrast to traditional public schools, which receive a free public facility, New York State charter schools typically must pay for their own school facilities. Learn more about how a gift to our Capital Projects directly benefits our studnets and greater community. (link)
  2. Our Alumni Engagment Program, which currently supports 900+ alumni in their journey to obtaining a high school diploma in four years and their options for post graduation. Learn more about our Alumni Program here.
