2019-20 Global Citizens Annual Fund: annual giving at The International School
We have raised over $120,000 for the 2019-20 Global Citizens Annual Fund – and counting!
We are overwhelmed and humbled by our community’s incredible support this year to support the work being done in your child’s classroom every single day!
A world of thanks to Ed Clark and Janet Roberts, along with the entire TIS Board of Trustees. They presented our community with a $50,000 dollar-for-dollar matching challenge gift this fall. Thank you as well to alumna parent Rich Read (Nehalem ’09), who called and surprised us with an extra $10,000 challenge in the last weeks of the fall fund drive! Our community excitedly rose to both challenges.
Make a gift that counts for every child, in every classroom, every day. The Global Citizens Annual Fund is an ongoing fundraising effort that helps our school operate at its best. The Global Citizens Annual Fund provides crucial resources to supplement our operating budget, and directly benefits our students and teachers. While funds can be restricted to a particular area of support, they are often diverted to the area of greatest need.
Each year we aim for 100% participation from our community of families, staff and Board of Trustees. Making a gift to the Global Citizens Annual Fund is a tangible way to show the commitment of our parents, staff, trustees, alumni and friends. It can also inspire additional gifts. One way that corporations and grant-making foundations evaluate an organization’s internal support is through the annual giving participation rate – no gift is too small! Whether your annual gift is $10 or $10,000, your philanthropic support helps TIS students and teachers thrive and shows you stand with us in our mission of inspiring world citizens.
