Will you go on a date?

First, we invite you on a first date. With beating heart and sweaty palms, we nervously await your answer. Will you make a donation to the TIS Fund to have an immediate impact on the day to day life of our students? Will you accept the invitation and make a donation or will we be rejected? Phew, you accepted! Thank you so much for your support. On our first date, we will take you on a tour around the school and you will see your donations at work in every classroom from the lights that shine to the classroom materials to the teacher in the classroom.

Please put us out of our misery and tell us, will you go out with us again? Will you renew your support of the TIS Fund? We hope so! If not, we will spend hours trying to figure out if we did something wrong. This is a key point in our relationship. This could be the start of a wonderful relationship that nurtures both you as a donor and enhances TIS.

We don't except you to date us exclusively, but can we say we are dating? Will you change your Facebook status to "In a relationship" with TIS? You won't be sorry you did. We enjoy publicly declaring our relationships in our Annual Report (unless of course you are shy) and honor our steady dates with an asterisk next to their names.

Whatever stage of the "dating" you are in with TIS, we truly value the relationship with you and want to make it stronger. If you have not yet gone on a "date" with TIS this school year, will you consider starting or continuing our relationship with a donation to the TIS Fund? If we are already dating, maybe we can go to the next base if
you are ready?
