Annual Fund

CIS is amongst the highest-ranked international schools in Asia. Outstanding programmes, exceptional faculty and staff and the many extraordinary projects that make CIS the special place that it is, cannot be covered by tuition alone. The goal of the Annual Fund has always been to increase resources and to ensure that our students are receiving the state of the art education that they deserve, accelerating the pace of innovation at CIS in a way that would not be possible through incremental increases to tuition fees and the operating budget.

The CIS Annual Fund is not just about fundraising. Most importantly, it is about community building and working together to enhance the learning experience for our children. It is a robust platform for parents to connect with each other, generate new ideas, share feedback with the school and strengthen school spirit.

Every year in addition to the flagship initiative, the Annual Fund provides support to the Student Dream Fund, Sustainability Fund, professional development, teaching fellows, financial aid and more.
