Annual Fund

Dallas International School is sustained by the collective generosity of parents, grandparents, staff, board and friends who make gifts of all sizes each year through the Annual Fund Campaign. Together, our community enables the school to fulfill its mission of preparing multilingual and culturally savvy students for active and responsible citizenship in the world.

Through the Annual Fund, programs are strengthened and faculty and staff are provided with the tools necessary for students to learn at the highest level both inside and outside of the classrooms.

Your support will have an immediate and powerful impact — providing crucial operating support and allowing DIS’s dedicated teachers to continue to inspire today’s students.

Your tax-deductible gift to the Annual Fund will support and enhance the joyful learning environment students experience each day. Every gift, large or small, is important and greatly appreciated.

List of 3 items.

  • Who participates?

    DIS enjoys impressive support from its parents, staff, grandparents, friends and board. To date, 100% of board directors, 100% of staff and 71% of parents supported DIS through the 2015-16 Bold Futures Annual Fund.

    Your tax-deductible gift to the Annual Fund will support and enhance the joyful learning environment students experience each day. Every gift, whatever its size, is important and greatly appreciated.
  • How much should I give?

    Each person should participate at a level according to their personal circumstances. Gifts range from $1-$100,000 and EVERY gift is important and makes a difference in the academic experience of each DIS student. All gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Your gift allows tuition to remain at a lower level, while at the same time, giving you a tax benefit to help the school. It’s a win-win situation.
  • Matching Gifts

    Employers will often match your contribution through a corporate matching gifts program. DIS has received matching gifts from Texas Instruments, Microsoft, Kimberly Clark, Raytheon, AT&T and Oracle, just to name a few. If you are not sure if your company has a matching gifts program, contact your Human Resources department. Matching gifts is a great way to double your donation to the school. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses.
