Move over DoorDash and Grubhub – the International School of Indiana has become the place to be the first Friday of every month. On January 8, ISI continued its First Friday series of local business partnerships to benefit the school’s Annual Fund: Year of Giving campaign. This time, the school teamed up with the renowned Noblesville restaurant Matteo’s Ristorante Italiano, which donated thousands of dollars from sales back to the school.

Dozens of parents, teachers and staff pre-ordered multiple appetizers, entrees and desserts, all boxed and ready for secure curbside outside the Taurel Building on our North Michigan Road campus.

"What a great way to end our first week of school in 2021," Kristen Kaiser, vice president of advancement and external relations said. "It's so heartwarming to see the support of our ISI community, and we deeply appreciate the partnership of businesses like Matteo's in our fundraising efforts."

Because of the pandemic and limited in-person engagement opportunities, ISI has had to reimagine fundraising efforts by supplementing the Annual Fund with smaller engagement initiatives. The fund provides critical support for the school’s operating budget, which helps cover the cost of educating students and now includes additional cleaning costs and supply needs because of the pandemic.

The First Friday events are among several fundraisers planned throughout the ISI Year of Giving campaign. Coming next on the First Friday menu: Lucky Lou Seafood and Dimsum of Indianapolis on February 5. Watch the ISI Community Events Calendar for information about more events as they become available.
