Philanthropy & Partnering

There Are Many Ways to Support Our School

The International School of Arizona, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, relies on many forms of philanthropy from its families, alumni, and the broader community. It is through this continued support that ISA can appreciate its past and look toward an even brighter future.

ISA invites all in our community to discuss what is important to your family when giving to the school.

Philanthropy Explained

It’s your generosity – above and beyond the tuition – that allows ISA to truly shine, and we wanted to share some information about the way philanthropy works at our school. The good news is that there are multiple ways of enriching your child’s school experience. The trick is that with so many options on the table, things can get confusing. So, here’s our best, most concise effort to help bring some clarity to our approach.


We ask that every member of our community give to the Annual Fund every year.

First off, it’s tax-deductible. But more importantly, it enables ISA to continue to set the standard in the area, and to distinguish itself as one of the most unique and respected schools in Arizona. Typically, 100% of our faculty and staff give each year to the Annual Fund, as do 100% of our Trustees, and 75% of our current parents. We’d like to see that last number – parent participation – go higher still. A gift to the Annual Fund is a vote of confidence for what we’re doing here. Gifts range from $50 to $25,000+ – and all are greatly appreciated.

ISA is a non-profit entity, which means that every year, we aim to run a balanced budget – in contrast to other entities that are looking to turn a profit on their business model and report only to investors. It also means that in exchange for not having to abide by state and federal guidelines on education, we do not receive any state or federal funds. Because of that, we charge our families tuition, which covers the vast majority of our annual expenses here at school – from faculty salaries to the air conditioning bill.
