2019-20 Global Citizens Annual Fund: annual giving at The International School
We are excited to announce a NEW $10,000 end-of-year matching challenge gift!
Two weeks ago, alumna parent Rich Read (Nehalem ’09) called and surprised us with an extra challenge: raise an additional $10,000 by 11:59 p.m. on December 31, and he’ll match that amount dollar-for-dollar!
We have less than $2,000 left to raise to meet this challenge!
We are incredibly close to meeting Rich’s new challenge, meaning a record-breaking $120,000 to help support the work being done in your child’s classroom every single day. We are overwhelmed and humbled by our community’s incredible support this year.
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; a challenge that we met!
Both challenges combined means – with your help – we will raise $120,000 for our students and teachers!
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.
