The TKS Annual Fund

The mission of the TKS Annual Fund is to create an UNLIMITED student experience at The Kessler School, an educational experience second-to-none in Oak Cliff and one rivaling all schools in the Metroplex.

The TKS Annual Fund powers the TKS UNLIMITED experience by supporting three pillars: providing additional resources for ACADEMICS, enhancing out-of-classroom experiences through STUDENT EXPERIENCE, and inspiring teachers to dream big through FACULTY/STAFF EXCELLENCE.

Make Your NTXGD Gift



Through our Annual Fund, we are fulfilling our mission of creating an enriching learning environment, tailored to the unique needs of our students. Our Annual Fund allows us to remain competitive with other private schools in the Metroplex by offering a well-rounded curriculum in harmony with our students, families, and faculty right here in Oak Cliff.‚Äč Each year, we rely on our school community to contribute to the Annual Fund. Tuition only covers 77% of the cost of our school’s expenses, so these tax-deductible donations to the Annual Fund make it possible for The Kessler School to continue to provide an unlimited, exceptional foundation for our students to grow.

The TKS Annual Fund is chaired by Kevin Doeksen, proud dad of Andrew (9), and Henry (9). “We chose to live in Oak Cliff because of its rich culture,” explains Kevin, “TKS, powered by the TKS Annual Fund, incorporates that richness to making the TKS experience so unique. That might be my favorite thing!"
