Annual Campaign dollars represent unrestricted funds that International School of Texas uses to bridge the gap between the operating budget and the actual cost of running the school. These funds support our operations including:

  • Teacher and staff training
  • Competitive salaries
  • Teacher and student materials and supplies
  • Healthy Eating Program
  • Systems and technology
  • The gap between actual cost per student and tuition

International School of Texas is not unique in its need for resources above and beyond tuition revenue. Like all other independent non-profit schools, our school must bridge the gap between what tuition revenue provides and the operating costs of the school. We rely on donations from family and friends, local businesses, and grants from foundations.

Your meaningful gift to the International School of Texas Annual Campaign moves us closer to this year’s goal. We ask all IST families to make a meaningful contribution. A rate of high participation, especially amongst current families, strengthens our school foundation, improves our applications for grants and shows how important an IST education is to our larger community.

To learn more about the Annual Campaign or make a gift contact Gina Vetro at fundraising@internationalschooloftexas.com.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Annual Campaign

I already pay tuition. Why should I give more?

While tuition provides part of our foundation for excellence, gifts to the Annual Campaign enable IST to enhance the educational environment of our school and to strengthen our financial position, especially in these crucial early years. The expenses of operating a high-quality school committed to academic excellence are enormous. Supplemental funds raised through voluntary contributions to the Annual Campaign are essential for IST to maintain a comprehensive, well-rounded educational program that offers challenging academics and a wide variety of extra curricular activities to our children. We strive for 100% parent, faculty and grandparent participation. Annual Campaign gifts are an important way in which families show renewed support every year.

Why does IST solicit each year for the Annual Campaign?

The Campaign raises dollars in annual gifts that are generally used within the fiscal year in which they are raised to support the annual operating budget of the school.

Who gives to the Annual Campaign—just parents?

The Annual Campaign is supported by a variety of the school’s constituencies, not just parents. While most of our support comes from our parents, we also have grandparents, friends, staff members and businesses that provide funds to assist the school.

Are contributions tax deductible?

Yes. All gifts to International School of Texas are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
