Year of Giving

The Year of Giving returns as an opportunity for our community - current families, alumni families, faculty, staff, board of directors, grandparents, friends, community partners, and businesses - to join together to invest in our students, our facilities, our faculty, and our future.

Upcoming events

First Friday with Seoul Fresh - Friday, February 4

On First Friday we partner with a different local restaurant or eatery to provide great meals for our ISI community at a great price. With proceeds benefiting ISI Annual Fund and ISI family businesses, First Fridays are a win-win!

Ready to try some of the best Korean food in Indianapolis? Then it's time to order Seoul Fresh.

Offering simple but delicious Korean inspired food, Seoul Fresh’s rice bowls are filled with incredibly fresh ingredients. And the servings are so generous there is often enough left for the next day - that is if you can stop yourself from eating the mouthwatering meal in one sitting. 

Orders opening early January. 

Travel Auction & Gala - Saturday, April 23

We invite you to the International School of Indiana’s signature fundraising event, the Travel Auction & Gala. An elegant evening filled with a delightful dinner, amazing auction and awesome after-party.

This year we have something extra special to celebrate …. the debut of the Chen Family Lower School! The Gala is also a preview party to celebrate the realization of a dream to unify the school community. Join us for a first look at this exciting new space!

Past Events


Annual Fund

Last year philanthropic support of the Annual Fund and COVID Emergency Response Fund meant ISI could implement important health and safety initiatives, improve technology to meet hybrid in person and virtual classrooms and meetings and aid in the continued recruitment of international teachers, making sure our students could keep learning throughout the year with limited interruptions.

Your philanthropic support of the ISI Annual Fund makes a difference in our day to day operations. By giving unrestricted gifts ISI can direct these funds where needed most for immediate impact, ensuring ISI remains agile and responsive, essential in this difficult time.

Completing your donation online takes just a few minutes.

ISI is a 501c3 organization. All contributions are tax deductible.

The construction taking place on our Michigan Rd campus is a tangible example of what philanthropic giving can do. The Chen Family Lower School is made possible by not only contributions of more than $1 million, but also by many $5 and $10 gifts. The ISI community should be justifiably proud we are collectively supporting the growth of our school.

Unifying the ISI community on a single campus is the realization of a dream and culmination of two-plus decades of work. 

It’s not too late to get involved! Donors who have gifted a total of $2,500 or more to the ONE ISI Campaign by December 31, 2021 will be eligible to purchase pre-sales tickets to the 2022 Travel Auction.
