Nurturing, challenging and inspiring students requires inspiring teachers, superior facilities, exceptional materials and the resources to take advantage of opportunities as they arise. Munich International School (MIS) is able to offer extraordinary experiences to our students and community because many parents, grandparents, alumni, current and former teachers and staff, and other friends of the School have given generously throughout our 50+ year history.
Why does Munich International School need philanthropic support?
Tuition and fees at MIS are substantial. What many people do not realise, however, is that our fees are calculated with a clear intention to remain as affordable as possible. Our tuition fees cover our personnel costs and expenses for educational materials, ongoing professional development, maintenance of our facilities, utilities, security, cleaning and other routine spending. As MIS is a non-profit association and receives some funding from the Bavarian government, we must negotiate a careful financial balancing act that precludes almost any form of investment or savings.
Our entrance fees have always supported periodic, large-scale capital works projects such the Languages, Arts and Design Centre (LADC) and Track & Field Complex, and our Performing Arts Centre (PAC). The timely completion of the LADC and eight-lane Track & Field was made possible, however, only because of additional philanthropic support from the school community.
Philanthropic gifts currently contribute to excellence at Munich International School in very special ways:
The MIS Foundation funds initiatives proposed by teachers, students and community members.
The Science Inspiration Fund makes innovative projects in the areas of science, robotics, electronics and computer coding available to students in the Junior, Middle and Senior schools.
Munich International School (MIS) is able to offer extraordinary experiences to our students and community because many parents, grandparents, alumni, current and former teachers and staff, and other friends of the School have given generously throughout our 50+ year history.
We would therefore be grateful to receive all kinds of contributions, both large and small. In keeping with the extraordinary views that we enjoy from our beautiful campus and the international nature of our School, there are three categories for gifts named after mountain peaks:
- Zugspitze (€10,000-49,999)
- Kilimanjaro (€50,000-99,999)
- Mt Everest (above €100,000)
MIS’ STRATEGIC FUTURE
At the heart of MIS’ current strategic plan are innovative learning spaces and curriculum design to make MIS students ‘future-ready’. Specifically, these plans include the provision of the following:
- Makers’ Laboratory
- New Gymnasium
- Innovation Hub
- Innovation Grants (for teaching and learning)
To achieve these plans as soon as possible, the School will once again look to support from individual donors.
