Join FIS' Support Efforts
As FIS responds to needs both here in our local area and beyond, community members are invited to participate by bringing needed items into school.
A list of items, as well as the collection points, will be updated as needed within this section.
Support Incoming Ukrainian Students
FIS is currently working with German authorities and other organizations to facilitate schooling options for children who have been forced to flee their homes and country due to the situation in Ukraine.
If you would like to support our efforts, you can do so by giving to the FIS Annual Fund, referencing "Ukrainian Student Support" in your donation.
Create "Art for Peace in Ukraine"
The Pechersk School International (PSI) in Kyiv has launched a global, student-driven movement called "Art for Peace in Ukraine" in which anyone can create and share their own piece of art to reflect what peace means to them. Further details on the initiative, including how to share, can be found here.
Donate to a Relief Organization
Whether supporting a global organization like the Red Cross or relief efforts on a local level, any contribution can help mitigate the impact of those suffering. Please see the drop-down menu below for a list of organizations currently providing support to those affected by the crisis in Ukraine.
As people around the world suffer from the impacts of conflict, let us keep them in our hearts and minds while we support one another in our own community, and continue working toward a more peaceful world, both in our words and our actions.
On behalf of FIS, I want to share our wish for peace and our concern for those around the world who may be suffering as the result of conflict and injustice. It is instances like these that call us all to reflect on the values that our FIS community holds most important, including our belief that "open-mindedness, empathy and compassion are essential for living in a diverse community."
