The Annual Fund

2023-24 Annual Fund: Growing our Community Together

A student’s experience is enhanced from donations to the Annual Fund, as tuition alone does not cover the cost of a DIS education.

It takes a community to create a nurturing and engaging learning environment for our students. While tuition provides a financial base, your donations help to ensure that students receive the most enriching experience possible at DIS. Annual Fund donations help support a wide variety of projects from classroom initiatives, learning materials, facility enhancements, and learning support for our students.

What is the Annual Fund?

The Annual Fund is the School's yearly campaign to raise funds supporting the daily operating budget. As an non-profit, independent school, DIS looks to bridge the gap between operating expenses and tuition revenues. 


How Can Donations Help?

Annual Fund contributions make a signficant and immediate impact on all educational programs, and allow the school to respond to priorities including:

  • enhancing the breadth and depth of the academic and co-curricular programming that have always been hallmarks of a Dallas International School education
  • attracting and retaining the most talented faculty and staff from around the globe
  • providing financial aid for a socioeconomically diverse community of students, from financial aid to assistance with technology
  • continual upgrades at our two campuses to promote greater safety and health resources
  • affirming our commitment to creating an inclusive learning environment
