Giving at GIS
Summer Update: GIS is listening. GIS is committed to avoiding fundraising fatigue. Our Resource Development Committee is responding to your feedback about too many events and too many asks for donations This year we are reducing our fundraising events to the ExÜBERance in Learning Fund and the Spring Fund Run. We really appreciate the many community members who contribute generously to make our program so outstanding. Please participate in our ExÜBERance in Learning Campaign this fall and we can celebrate our community support together AND avoid fundraising fatigue!
2019-2020 Giving Opportunities
ExÜBERance in Learning Campaign
4th Annual GIS Fund Run
TBD – PreK at GIS
TBD – K-Grade 5 at Tektronix
Of course we welcome giving at any time!
The 1995 club commemorates the year of our founding and honors donors who give $1,995 or more to the ExÜBERance in Learning Fund. Donors at this level receive an invitation to our annual 1995 Club event, this year in March 2020 (details to come). At this event we also honor our ExÜBERant Volunteers- those who volunteered 125 hours or more during the previous school year.
Please contact Blake Peters, our Head of School, with any questions or to discuss the many ways you can support GIS.
Other Ways to Support GIS
There are several local companies that have matching gift programs where they will match (and sometimes double!) your charitable gift to GIS. Nike, Intel , Daimler and NVidia all have such programs. Does the company where you work have a matching gift program? Nike and Intel also give GIS a cash donation matching your volunteer hours. These programs are an excellent way to make your donations and your volunteering stretch further to support of GIS. Please contact Jackie Ortega, our Business Manager, if you need help determining how to benefit GIS through matching gift programs.
Volunteering at GIS
Volunteering is one of the most important things you can do for our school. There are many ways to engage in our community by giving your time and talent. Everyone benefits – including you – when you volunteer. See our volunteer tab for our current opportunities.
In-Kind and Restricted Gifts
On occasion we have need for donated items or restricted gifts. Please contact Blake Peters, our Head of School, if you have ideas, questions or for more information about giving in this way.
