Island School Giving:

We are grateful for the generous nature of the Island School community towards the enhancement of our students’ educational experiences. We are mindful that there is no such thing as a small gift, every gift, of any size will add up in support of our students.

The 2016-17 Spirit Fund will continue to support various departments in their efforts to offer students the very best educational opportunities both in and outside of the classroom. This year we have identified the needs of specific departments with an eye to give our donors the opportunity to give gifts in areas of personal interest.

Funds that are donated to an area that has met its target will be redirected to general donations, and be applied to area in need of additional support. 25 percent of the first million dollars donated will go to the Island School Trust Scholarship for students in need (excluding money donated to the memorial funds).
