Philanthropic support strengthens our programs and enriches the student experience.
At ISDenver, we take a conservative approach to budgeting to ensure our basic operating expenses are covered by tuition. Instead of fundraising to cover a gap between revenue and expenses, ISDenver fundraises for growth. In addition to generating near-term impact, every gift is tax deductible and many gifts qualify for the Colorado Childcare Contribution Tax Credit.
In recent years, private gifts have helped us to capitalize on Classrooms Without Walls opportunities, elevate our athletics programming, upgrade our performing arts space, expand academic technology, augment significantly our STEAM program, increase our campus signage and security, and enhance the outdoor experience with the construction of a new K3 / 1st grade playground.
Colorado Gives Day is an annual statewide movement to celebrate and increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving.
Last year, ISDenver received over $66,000 from 75 families through coloradogives.org on Colorado Gives Day – in just 24 hours!
This year, Colorado Gives Day is Tuesday, December 5, 2017. All donations made through coloradogives.org will be directed to the stated priorities for the year. Additional benefits of giving through Colorado Gives Day include the ability to make recurring credit card payments, and bolstering our benefit from an incentive fund that kicks back our proportional share of a state-wide, $1M incentive fund.
Gala is ISDenver’s most popular party and largest single-day fundraiser.
Each spring, our parents, families, friends, faculty, and staff enjoy an evening of bidding on live auction items that focus on adventure and experience, joining a contagious paddle raise that brings the entire room together in support of ISDenver, and kicking up their heels to a live band.
The International Scholars Society recognizes ISDenver donors who make philanthropic contributions of $2,500 or more to the school in any given year – including monetary support for the capital campaign, Community Giving, and the spring gala. We are pleased to extend an extra special thank you to our most generous donors with twice yearly invites, including the 10/17 reception with Dr. Gigi Luk (ask us for more details!).
