Giving Priorities

When Gryphons Give

Philanthropic contributions to ISI are an investment in our students, our facilities, our faculty, and our potential. When Gryphons Give, we make it possible for students and our entire institution to be ever ready for the world stage. You can support current and future Gryphons by allocating your gifs to the following areas:

Annual Fund

Like most independent schools, International School of Indiana’s Annual Fund provides vital dollars to the operating budget which supplements tuition income and other revenue to cover the full cost of educating each student. The GryFund Campaign is ISI’s annual fund campaign. Alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends are encouraged to make this annual philanthropic gift, so ISI has the resources to respond to immediate needs, unexpected opportunities, and new ideas.

Facilities

From recruitment and retention of student and faculty to engagement in the classroom, world-class educational spaces and facilities make a meaningful difference in every aspect of our School. As we approach a quarter century since the School’s founding, we have launched an effort driven by the goal of uniting our institution on a single campus. One International School of Indiana is a capital campaign to construct a new Lower School facility on our Michigan Road Campus and to enhance our existing facilities. ISI is currently in the leadership phase of this campaign, soliciting gifts that will allow us to realize the vision for our permanent home on Michigan Rd.

Endowment Gifts

Endowment gifts, as defined by ISI, are gifts or bequests of money that are given for the permanent support of the School. Spending of the endowment principal is prohibited unless otherwise specified by the donor. Only a portion of investment returns generated from the principal may be used to support designated activities. With a present value of approximately $250,000 the ISI endowment is in its infancy. As ISI matures, the School hopes that legacy gifts from ISI families and friends will grow the endowment in measurable ways that have a lasting impact for future Gryphons.

Scholarships

Scholarship support helps International School of Indiana attract the best and brightest students and makes an ISI education possible for students who wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity. ISI is pleased to work with you to create new annual or endowed scholarship awards that will support ISI's mission to provide a world-class education right here in Indiana. Your scholarship gift can provide need- or merit-based assistance to students in the school or language track of your choice.

Athletics

The International School of Indiana’s athletic programs continue to grow. Funds allocated for sports help to cover expenses on and off the field and maintain the strengthen our maturing athletics program. Major gift opportunities within Athletics include facilities projects.
