Trinity-Byrnes Collegiate School is a not-for-profit organization operating without any local, state, or federal funding. Unfortunately, tuition alone does not cover the cost of a Trinity-Byrnes education. Our school is largely sustained by the good works and charitable gifts of its families and community.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Where do contributions to the Annual Fund go?
Why do I need to give to the Annual Fund when I already pay tuition?
There is a $4,000 gap between the actual cost of educating one student and tuition/fees paid. In order to bridge that gap, we ask that parents, alumni, former parents and grandparents contribute to the Annual Fund. This keeps our tuition affordable and allows us to continue operating the premiere college preparatory school in the Pee Dee.
I can’t make a large gift. How will my donation make a difference?
Parent and alumni participation are very important to our school; regardless of the size of your gift, showing that you support our faculty & staff with an Annual Fund gift makes a big impact! In addition, we can use our parent and alumni participation numbers to our advantage when applying for grants or marketing our school. When parents, alumni, and friends of our school continue to support the Annual Fund, we send a clear message that TBCS truly exemplifies Loyalty, Honor, and Perseverance.
