Everyone supporting Teaching for the Future

Join our Culture of Giving.

ISC is a non-profit association which counts on donations from our generous community to accelerate Educational plans and projects improving our school’s 4 key areas: Learning, Innovation, Community and Campus.

Giving to your favorite charity feels good, but giving to Education is powerful and can have a greater impact than you think. It influences others to be committed to the learning not only of your children but also, of the next generations to come. A little goes a long way at our school and when you make a donation to ISC you join a community that is engaged in making a difference in fulfilling the school’s vision Teaching for the Future.

You too can participate and make an impact in Education. Together we go further.

The 1959 Club is a distinguished group of parents that spark change at ISC.

Join the 1959 Club by donating R$ 1.959,00 or more to support the projects at ISC. The impact of those donations and the engagement of our community help us to deliver innovatively and distinguish projects for our student’s education.

Frequent Questions

Still having questions about Advancement?

ISC is a non-profit school that relies on donations to be able to accelerate innovative projects that impact learning really fast.

By making a donation to ISC, you not only help improving learning, but also supports service projects.

Yes, all gifts are recognized. Names of donors are listed in our annual ISC REPORT. The list does NOT include the amount donated. When making your gift, please be sure to let us know under which name(s) you would like your gift to be recognized. Gifts may also remain anonymous in our report, by request. Other areas where gifts may be recognized are: pages of our website, WINDOW Magazine, and other ISC communications.

Each year, the school spends around 80% of tuition fees paying for the best teachers hired from overseas or locally and 20% on operational costs. ISC is a non-profit association of parents and voluntary gifts allow the school to strengthen and enhance its programs and learning environments at levels well beyond those that can be paid through tuition alone.

No. The funds raised in the Annual Fund Campaigns from 2018 to 2021 will be spent in one sole project (the building of a theater), for example.

ISC is part of The Council for Advancement and Support of Education, a global non-profit association who shares the goal of championing education through fundraising to transform lives and society.

Your donations provide the highest impact on your children's learning, as well as the whole school ecosystem.
