As we celebrate the 60th anniversary of The American International School · Vienna (AIS), we are excited to announce the launch of our Annual Fund. The Annual Fund is the school’s primary fundraiser and an ongoing effort that helps our school operate at its best.
While tuition covers the majority of our costs, funds raised through the Annual Fund are designed to heighten every aspect of a student’s life; in the classroom, on the playing fields, and in the global community, by providing crucial resources to fund programs and improvements that go above and beyond what tuition provides.
The AIS Annual Fund’s goal this year is to have as many community members participate as possible. We appreciate every gift and recognize the contributions that all our families, faculty, and staff bring to the AIS community. There’s one thing we all have in common – our connection to AIS. Your support is an expression of your belief in the excellence of our school and is a tremendous representation of the AIS spirit. We encourage all members of our community to participate in the Annual Fund in any capacity.
We will continue to develop positive relationships and secure financial support from the broad base of our AIS Community. The dedication we all share towards our 800 students representing 64 different nationalities, and nearly 14,000 alumni we know AIS is something special. With your help, AIS can continue to be a leader in independent and international education and have a lasting impact for generations. A gift to the Annual Fund is one of the most powerful things you can do to support your child’s education.
This year the Annual Fund will focus on enhancing student learning through:
A - Arts, Athletics, Activities - Enhancing the opportunities, equipment, materials for all students. Sample projects could include equipment improvements, sound and lighting improvements to large spaces, enhancements to trips, experiences, etc.
I - Infrastructure - Accelerating the transformation of core learning spaces across AIS. Sample projects-Improving the airflow to include air conditioning for high stakes testing (in the short term) and later on for overall comfort and better learning. Greening our campus remains an additional high priority!
S - STEM - Creating innovative spaces for more dynamic ways to learn science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Sample projects; an enhancement to current programs - robotics, ES Innovation Lab.
