TASIS - The American School In England TASIS - The American School In England

Thank you to our donors

Welcome to the Development section of the TASIS England website! We invite you to browse through our pages and contact us with any questions. The Giving section could not begin with anything other than a short description of the biggest gift of them all: Mrs. Fleming’s contribution.

Toward the end of her life, Mrs. M. Crist Fleming and her family decided to bequeath the TASIS Schools, which she founded and owned, to a non-profit Swiss foundation, the TASIS Foundation, that would be charged with keeping alive her independent-school vision and educational approach for generations to come. The first TASIS Development Office was established in 1998 to help raise funds to support the TASIS mission and Mrs. Fleming’s vision. Since then, hundreds of parents, alumni, and friends have made generous gifts to TASIS to fund scholarships, program enhancements, curriculum enrichment, and facility development. Happily, Mrs. Fleming lived on until 2009, keeping an eye on everything to make sure her famous standards were maintained. But since her passing, we must remember her example, strive to live up to her expectations, and maintain her priorities. Thus beauty will always be an important part of any TASIS campus, and we rejoice in the opportunities to promote cultural understanding by having a campus full of young people from around the globe.

Both the program, which “fills all their waking hours with study, travel, sports, and the arts,” and the beautiful (and old) TASIS campus require constant investment. Tuition income covers all operating costs, but program enhancements are dependent on generous contributions. If you would like to join other parents, alumni, and friends who help us, please browse this section. Your gift will help provide the unique and wonderful TASIS experience to students from around the globe and will ensure that TASIS remains the world-class educational institution it is today.

Thank you,
