The Tower Society Fund
Since the establishment of the Topeka High School Historical Society (THSHS) in 1985 we have financially supported the Topeka Board of Education’s unique responsibility of maintaining the integrity of the phenomenal school building. The THSHS Board of Directors has created the Tower Society Fund, recognizing graduated levels of giving. The levels of giving in the THSHS Tower Society Fund might remind alumni and friends of years spent at Topeka High – Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior, Top of the Tower, Mighty Trojan and THS Guardian.
Tower Society contributions from Topeka High supporters have assisted the school district in funding many restoration projects including stained glass restoration, replication and restoration of Student Cafeteria Chandeliers, restoration of the David Overmyer mural in the Woodward Library and restoration of the THS Classical Room, to name a few.
Tower Society funds are used for building restoration and repair projects. The THSHS is a 501(c)3 organization. Donations may be tax deductible and matched by business partners.
This is an opportunity for those who treasure their high school memories at this historic building to help ensure its preservation for another 88 years and many more generations to come.

The Topeka High School Historical Society partners with Topeka Public Schools to plan projects, often matching funds or providing full funding, that preserve and enhance the remarkable landmark building known as Topeka High School.
The Tower Society Fund allows alumni and friends of Topeka High School to contribute to preservation projects as varied as restoring stained glass windows to creating the Trojan Plaza in front of the building to repairing the Deagan Chimes.
As individuals contribute to the Tower Society Fund, dollars will be aggregated to move donors through the levels described below.
