Make a gift

People give to a school like ISB, not just because they want to make a difference, but because ISB has made a difference to them and their children.

In a year when Covid-19 has provided us with challenges and provided many families with a great deal of uncertainty, we have therefore decided to allocate any unrestricted gifts that we receive to our Assisted Places Programme and increase the number of families we can support. In this way, we can further reinforce the “inclusion” aspect of our mission and ensure that every child at ISB is able to continue their education for as long as possible.

Funds can also be directed to support the many initiatives outlined in our recent Futures Spotlight communications.

A Digital Citizenship Taskforce comprised of faculty and staff members across all four divisions was put in place to develop curriculum that will help students think critically about online content, as well as being responsible and safe with how to connect, communicate and behave online.
