Annual Fund Giving Day 2017

Annual Fund Giving Day 2017

Our Annual Fund Giving Day is on Thursday, December 7, 2017!


This year marks 10 years from the founding of GISC! On this day, we will celebrate our students and our school, and encourage giving to the Annual Fund – whether that is by making a pledge or a donation to GISC. We would not be where we are today without the generous support from our loyal supporters. Thank you!


Two of our Giving Day sponsors are making special offers to make Giving Day even more fun:


i9 Sports will offer one free sports season each to the givers of the two largest donations received by 10:00 am on Thursday, December 7, 2017. i9 Sports offers soccer, flag football, basketball, and baseball! This is a great opportunity to try a new sport “on the house”.


The Robert Bosch Tool Corporation will give GISC a $5,000 bonus donation if we reach either 95% participation from our GISC families or a total of $50,000 in pledges and donations by 11:59pm on December 7, 2017! Please help us reach these goals by making a pledge or a donation and encouraging others to do the same! (Gifts already given to the 2017-2018 Annual Fund will count in helping us reach these goals.)


Further, to illustrate just how much our school and our students have grown, we will share on Facebook and on our website a student-directed video about what makes GISC special to our students. Stay tuned and like our Facebook page today to receive all updates.


If you have any questions, or ideas to help us reach our goals, please feel free to contact us at  Meanwhile, if you want to make a gift online, please go to our website at and click on the yellow “Donate” button to make a donation via PayPal or with a debit or credit card. If you would like to make a pledge, please email us at If you are sending a check in the mail, please notify us by sending an email to, so we can make sure the check is included to help us reach our Giving Day goals!


Thank you for your support of the German International School Chicago!
