2nd Annual Giving Campaign

Dear iSchoolOC Community,

 

Welcome to the second Annual Giving Campaign! This is our 2022-2023 school year fundraiser, and we very much look forward to your participation in this effort. The goals are two-fold and equally important this year — to raise $65,000 and get 100% participation.

 

A fundraiser is a standard cultural effort in independent schools in the U.S. Last year, thanks to the generosity of our parents, Board of Trustees, faculty, staff, grandparents, alumni, and friends, the campaign was a great success. We surpassed our goal and reached $50,580 from 78 donors.

 

For iSchoolOC, now in its second year of independence, your gifts go directly to enrich the excellence of our academic programs and overall student activities, which include: talented and dedicated teachers, small classes, curricular resources, and a unique bilingual program accredited by the French Ministry of Education. No matter the amount, each donation is vital to our continued success. Your gift is tax-deductible: EIN #36-4957861 under the name ‘International School of Orange County’. Show your support and become an instant member of one of our Circles by clicking here.

 

The Giving Circles:

These different levels of contribution are acknowledged on our virtual Donor Wall, and it will be my pleasure to invite any donor of $1,000 and above to our Spring Campaign-Celebratory-Dinner:

  • Fellow Circle: $2,023 and above

  • Loyalty Circle: $1,000-2,022

  • Supporter Circle: up to $999

 

The followings are common questions among our community members regarding this fundraiser:

 

How much should I give?

The reality is that any and all gifts to the Annual Giving Campaign are welcome and appreciated! We understand that families can donate at very different levels, but the suggested median amount is $1,000 per student. From the Supporter Circle to the Fellow Circle (please see above), these donations will no doubt help iSchoolOC to reach its annual goal. In addition, your company may be participating in matching-gift-program, in which case your donation can be doubled; as such, we encourage you to ask your employer! Please note that even if your gift is not paid in full by 12/31, pledge payments are accepted throughout the school calendar year.

 

Why should I give?

In addition to enriching our school environment and reaching our set annual amount, our goal is for the school to reach 100% participation. We believe in the importance of community effort and the positive effect it has on our school. Any amount will assist in this effort, and we sincerely hope that you can participate in supporting our goals.

 

Your contribution will make a significant difference, and we are truly blessed and thankful for your support. Please join us in reaching our goal and continuing to make our school a great place to learn, develop, and grow. D’avance Merci Beaucoup!

 

Warm regards,

Pascal Stricher
