Many donors are able to give more by spreading their gift out over the year through monthly or quarterly donations. You can determine the total amount you would like to contribute and spread it out evenly through the end of the fiscal year, or you may simply choose an amount to give each month. Make a recurring gift through our secure online giving form.
See if your company is match eligible. You may have the opportunity to double or even triple the value of your gift. Many companies offer matching gift programs to their employees as part of the benefits package. Please contact your Human Resources Office to learn more about your company’s matching gift policy and to determine if you are eligible for a matching gift, or use the link provided to search the list we have compiled.
International School of Indiana’s signature fundraising event is Travel Auction. This important source of annual philanthropic support for the School enriches every aspect of the International School of Indiana experience and is only possible thanks to the generosity of our community of supporters. Travel Auction details are posted under the Events navigation of the website in late November or early December each year.
Indiana's Tax Credit Scholarship program was created in 2009 as a way to give families who meet income guidelines an opportunity to send their child to a participating private school. As a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) Participating School, International School of Indiana receives scholarships that are used for incoming or existing students who may not have the option to attend ISI otherwise.
Donations to the SGO differ from Annual Fund and ONE ISI Campaign contributions, as they are made directly to ISI’s SGO partner, Institute for Quality Education. All donations to SGOs are eligible for a state tax credit equal to 50% of the donation amount, and donations also qualify as a charitable deduction on federal tax returns.
Is there a limit to how much I can give and still receive the tax credit?
No, provided the donation does not exceed the available credits under the cap. (The state has allocated $15 million for this fiscal year July 1, 2019 - June 20, 2020. It resets annually on July 1). Click here to see the Total Credits Awarded to Date.
Who receives the scholarships, and can I designate a school or a student to receive my gift?
Indiana K-12 students who meet income eligibility guidelines and attend a participating school. Donors may designate gifts to a specific school, but not to a specific student.
Are there conditions to giving from a Donor Advised Fund?
Granting the credit is subject to two major conditions, both of which must be met. First, the credit can only be granted to the original donor of the funds. Any other individual may not claim the credit. Second, the donor must be willing to be subject to any federal provisions that come along with taking the credit. This includes: Potential exposure to reduced charitable deductions (determined as of when the contribution to the DAF is made) and potential exposure to federal excise taxes, especially those under IRC section 4958.
Donations must be directed to “Institute for Quality Education” in order to receive the tax credit, not to our institution.
Donations may be made via cash, check, credit/debit card, grain, RMD, DAF, stock or mutual funds.
