You’re Invited!

We may be apart, but join us on November 21 to celebrate the heart of our community that remains strong.  Help support the education of our global citizens and the teachers that love them with options for dinner for purchase from one of our TIS community restaurants, student entertainment, alumni highlights, a gala special appeal video and presentation and online auction items.

How you can help!

Participate!  If you own business and/or have a talent or resource and would like to participate in our gala (perhaps as a donor or sponsor) or want more information on how we can highlight you at our event, please contact event coordinator Rebecca Roberts at

Donate!  We are looking for donations to include in our online auction.  Do you have a beach or mountain home or vacation home that you would like to donate as an auction item?  Can you offer a class or service as an auction item?  Do you have a talent that could be an amazing auction item?  We would love to hear from you.

Tickets go on sale on October 2, 2020!

2019-2020 Global Gala Highlights

Global Gala 2020……Wow!  What an amazing night we had celebrating The International School!  We successfully raised over $465,000 including $280,000 for the Deloris A. Spear Teachers Fund.  Guests enjoyed a silent auction followed by dinner and a live auction including entertainment of taiko drumming by four of our very own TIS students and Portland’s own en Taiko.

Thank you to our TIS community, donors and friends for helping to make our 2020 Global Gala a truly unforgettable evening.
