As a non-profit organization, ZIS relies on fundraising for educational enhancements and to create our unique "ZIS Experience." The Annual Fund is the school’s primary fundraiser. It has an immediate impact on students and teachers by funding programs and improvements that go above and beyond what tuition provides.
2019/20 Sustainability Focus
As the yearly appeal to all members of the ZIS community, the Annual Fund supports strategic projects that enhance educational excellence for current students. Evidence of our community's generosity can be seen with plaques around school, commemorating many past fundraising projects.
As the Brundtland Report notably put it, Sustainability is "meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
This year's Annual Fund projects focus on Educating for Sustainability on each campus and at the school generally. A range of impactful projects - including professional development, Zero Waste workshops, Living Classroom development, participation in the Eco-Schools initiative, Sustainability / STEAM guest speakers and many others - will provide opportunities for our students, their families and the whole community to participate in Sustainability initiatives and to support the U.N.'s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Annual Fund is working closely with the Sustainability Coordinator at ZIS, who will grow and organize these activities across campuses.
