Welcome from gala chairs

We are honored to welcome you to the International School of Indiana’s signature fundraising event, the International Gala: A Night at the Museum! This year’s spectacular event at the Children’s Museum will provide a “Grown Up's Night Out” to celebrate, welcome back key people who have fostered the school’s growth and success, and to meet new families and friends who are vital to the future of the International School of Indiana.

Importantly, this event is not only a great opportunity to have fun with fellow ISI friends and families, but it’s also a great way to help support the ISI community. As we continue to grow into the new unified campus, The International Gala remains the most significant source of revenue for the ISI Annual Fund, which broadly supports investment in our most vital asset - the ISI students. Your philanthropic gifts support and strengthen the programs that impact our students, including the Financial Aid and Scholarship Program, recruitment, retention, and development of our faculty, facility maintenance and improvement projects, and essential extracurriculars like arts, drama, and athletics programs.

We are truly grateful to the many individuals, families, and businesses that made this event possible. We look forward to celebrating the school, the ISI community, and the future together.

Thank you for all you do, and enjoy the evening!

Heather & Erik Woods
ISI Parents and 2023 International Gala Co-Chairs
