The teerdhala family
"We donate to the MIS Annual Fund because we’re investing in not only our children’s education, but to a school that is on the cutting edge of innovative learning. It’s exciting to be a part of it!"
The Young Family
"Our family gives to the Annual Fund because we love the excellent science labs and the wonderful theater programs and the new sports teams that make MIS such a rewarding place to be for our son. We also love the teachers, and we want MIS to keep them happy by supporting them with the best equipment and training."
"I wanted to give money to my school because I love MIS, and I love going to school at MIS. I wanted to be on the Annual Fund Committee to help the school get more money and engage the teachers and parents to talk to the kids about what they are learning."
"We view ourselves as MIS investors and understand that as investors who have a vested interest in the future success and growth of the school, it’s important to contribute toward that success. We realize that tuition payments alone aren't enough to help MIS achieve its full potential."

mis annual fund: Levels of support
Contributions at all levels prove vital to keeping MIS thriving. Major foundations look for community commitment when evaluating grants, and strong parent participation in annual funds counts for a lot. Last year our faculty achieved 100% participation, and this year our goal is to have our parents match this level of support. It shows that as a community, we’re all in for MIS.
