Mission

The mission of Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology Partnership Fund, Inc. is to support the unique learning opportunities, specialized curriculum and innovative research experiences available for TJ students. As a non-profit foundation, we pursue our mission by engaging in partnerships with, and soliciting private donations from, corporations, parents, alumni, and friends of TJ in the STEM community.

The TJ Partnership Fund (PF) is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charitable organization that raises funds to meet TJ’s unique needs as a premier public science and technology high school. Since 1999, the PF has raised funds to support the ongoing needs of the School, including acquiring equipment and technology for TJ’s research labs and other classrooms, and making possible special programs and events such as the tjSTAR research symposium.

The PF is comprised of three full time employees, one part time employee, and a group of current and past parents, alumni, and corporate representatives. We are in constant need of volunteers to fill positions and offer all kinds of assistance.
