Collaboration and Contribution

Supporting IMS

The richness of our community comes from our connections and relationships. Our approach to a global education requires that we build partnerships with people and organizations who can support us operationally and educationally.

All families are expected to collaborate and contribute at IMS by providing at least 15 hours of volunteer service and by contributing financially according to each family’s means. Family volunteers often share their area of expertise or pitch in to support the day-to-day operations of the school. Financial support comes through contributions to the Community Giving Fund and other fundraising activities throughout the year.

Community Giving Fund

The Community Giving Fund is IMS’ fundraising foundation, and the name we have given to our Annual Fund. Donations to this fund provide resources for financial aid, professional development, classroom materials, and other mission critical needs. As is generally the case with independent schools, tuition does not cover the full cost of education. Contributions to the Community Giving Fund allow us to better serve and support our community.

Collaboration and contributions are not limited to those who have children enrolled at IMS. If you are someone who loves the idea of helping an international school and serving your community, we would welcome a conversation with you! Contact us if you would like to discuss the ways you could collaborate and contribute!
