JTD is a non-profit organization. Therefore, apart from tuition, our key sources of revenue are generated by support through endowment income, the JTD Parents' Association fundraising efforts, and the Annual Fund. Each year, parents, faculty/staff, alumni, past parents, grandparents, and friends include The John Thomas Dye School in their philanthropy, providing approximately 10% of the School’s annual revenue.

  • Stock Gifts

    Making a gift of stock allows you, the donor, to take the full market value of the securities as a charitable deduction. You are likely not liable for the capital gains tax, nor is The John Thomas Dye School, as the School is a non-profit and does not pay capital gains tax.  When making a gift of securities to JTD, make sure you give the stock, not the proceeds from the sale. 
    The most efficient method of donating appreciated securities is a direct transfer via DTC from your brokerage account to that of the school. Please call the Advancement Office at (310) 476-2811 x1404 or reach out to Database Administrator Bushra Ashfaq at for DTC information.

"I continue to support JTD becuase it is an environment that provided our most lasting family glue and now that we have two children in college on the east coast and one in high school, we treasure the glue that binds as much as we ever did."
