WHY IS PARTICIPATION IN THE GISW ANNUAL GIVING CAMPAIGN IMPORTANT?

Engaging in our school鈥檚 Annual Giving Campaign brings our community together in pursuit of a shared objective: to leave a lasting impact on the GISW experience for current and future students. Contrary to popular belief, German companies do not automatically provide support to German schools. Robust participation rates in the GISW Annual Giving Campaign within our community serve as a testament to potential external donors, showcasing our dedication to the school's mission, our confidence in its integrity, and the institution's financial resilience over both the short and long term.  The size of the gift is less important than a consistent high level of engagement in our school鈥檚 fundraising efforts.  

IS MY DONATION TAX DEDUCTIBLE?

Yes, gifts to GISW are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.  

I AM INTERESTED IN SUPPORTING MULTIPLE FUNDS WITH MY DONATION. IS THIS POSSIBLE?
