ExÜBERance In Learning Fund

Giving Beyond Yourself

The ExÜBERance in Learning Fund is a vital source of revenue for the German International School that bridges the gap between the price of tuition and the school’s actual operating costs. Each fall, through an annual giving campaign, we reach out to the GIS community - families, friends, and alumni - to ask for their financial support of the academic programs and extracurricular activities that enhance our student-centered school experience. 

As with many American independent schools, GIS deliberately sets tuition rates below the full cost of educating each child in order to make our school accessible to a more diverse range of families. Charitable donations to GIS are tax-deductible, and eligible for matching gifts from many corporations. We seek to nurture a culture of giving at GIS that reflects our school philosophy to “give our children the tools and perspectives needed to actively participate as citizens in a global community.”

The ExÜBERance in Learning Fund helps keep class sizes small and covers costs including:  

  • Musical productions and instruments
  • Classroom technology
  • German and English library books and media
  • Sports equipment
  • Financial assistance program (including sibling discounts)
  • Field trips (Oregon Zoo, OMSI, Tualatin Hills Nature Park, Oregon Children’s Theatre)
  • Guest speakers
  • Professional development for faculty and staff
  • Art supplies and experiences
  • Community social events

Our goal this year is $50,000

Participation in the ExÜBERance in Learning Campaign is highly encouraged, and we ask each family to make a donation or pledge annually. Gifts range between $5 and $10,000, and every gift counts. Thank you so much for your generous, ongoing support of GIS.
