Annual Fund

As a non-profit organization, Zurich International School relies on fundraising to  make possible our unique "ZIS Experience." The Annual Fund is the school’s primary fundraiser. It has an immediate impact on ZIS by funding essential programs and learning experiences for our students, teachers and the whole ZIS community.

For more information about the Annual Fund, please read our frequently asked questions or contact ZIS Head of Development Jenny Wyss.

2020/21 STEM and Sustainability Focus 


As the yearly appeal to all members of the ZIS community, the Annual Fund supports key academic priorities that benefit students and the learning experience at ZIS. This financial support is essential to the success of these key initiatives.

In the 2020/21 school year, Annual Fund contributions will make possible the expansion of the STEM curriculum throughout the campuses, as well as the support of extracurricular STEM learning opportunities like First LEGO League and VEX Robotics, STEM camps and workshops, and a Young Entrepreneur program. Regarding Sustainability learning, the Annual Fund will contribute to funding for a continuation of last year's initiatives, including further development of the Educating for Sustainability curriculum and the support of Living Classrooms.

These focus areas are spearheaded by the STEM Coordinator and the Sustainability Coordinator, who assure that learning is aligned across campuses and build partnerships with local and global professionals to provide the best opportunities for our students. 

(As the Annual Fund has been successfully completed for 20/21 - please see the thank you video below! - we welcome your support of Building the Future of Learningthe new Middle and Upper School Campus. The donate button will take you to a giving form to support this exciting project.)
