The Annual Fund is an invitation to our worldwide community of alumni, parents, corporate clients, and FIS faculty and staff to support the school in its effort to achieve its mission. Through the generosity of our Annual Fund donors, we can accelerate the pace at which we make important investments in our learning and teaching programs – by continually innovating and improving our academic curriculum and extra-curricular offerings, we can better ensure the highest standard of education for our students.
Tuition and fees primarily cover the cost of maintaining and operating the school, but donations to the Annual Fund help FIS to:
• make breakthrough investments in our academic and extra-curricular offerings;
• purchase state-of-the-art equipment and technology for our classrooms, libraries, and laboratories;
• fund our critical financial aid program (TRP);
• increase professional development to attract and retain the best teachers and staff; and,
• support our performing arts, music, art and athletic programs.
Thanks to the generosity of our FIS community, the Annual Fund has raised approximately €375.000 in the past two years. Donations directly impacted the quality of education and teaching environments for our current students and faculty on both our Oberursel and Wiesbaden campuses. Some of the recent major improvements and breakthrough innovations – the school's Rosetta Stone language program, an Internship program for Grade 10 and 11 students, and the addition of microscopes to all Elementary School classrooms – would not be possible without donations to the Annual Fund.
All donations, regardless of size, collectively make a big difference in the quality of education at FIS. And, your donation is tax deductible and is often matched by your company, which effectively doubles the impact that you are making on our students today.
So, please make a gift to the Annual Fund and help support today’s FIS and FISW students build their future.
