Annual Fund

CFIS Annual Fund

Your contributions will support the CFIS Annual Fund's 3 key pillars; Head's Initiative, Mission Impact, and Bridging Bursaries. 

Head's Initiatives

The Head's Initiatives fund will direct philanthropic contributions to support and advance the school's student learning and well being as well as faculty and staff professional growth and well being.

Mission Impact

The Mission Impact fund directly impacts students and ensures students will continue to have access to leading-edge technology, equipment, and spaces. Mission Impact will also include funding for international opportunities that are over and above the existing curriculum.  Donor's contributions will impact the following:

  • Fine & Performing Arts
  • Athletics
  • STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math)
  • International Opportunities

CFIS Bridging Bursaries

The CFIS Bridging Bursaries program provides bursaries to current, enrolled, CFIS families with students in K-12 that are facing temporary financial difficulties (for example, job loss, or loss of income due to illness). Since the inception of the program in 2016, we have provided almost $400,000 in bursaries to our students.

Round Square Travel Studies Bursary

Calgary French & International School is happy to announce the creation of the Round Square Travel Studies Bursary. Round Square schools allow the opportunity to connect with partner schools and build upon our shared values and goals.  These experiences open up the world to our students and teachers, allowing them to forge friendships and connections, virtually or through exchanges. Round Square gives us a wider range of avenues to offer inspiring international education to our students. Beginning in 2022, this bursary will assist students on an annual basis to participate in Round Square activities regardless of financial obstacles families may face.

As a full Global Member of Round Square, CFIS secondary students experience a global landscape, receiving a robust academic education while being able to experience elements of the vast world around them, in experiential ways that spark their imagination and passions.

Round Square offers countless opportunities to open student minds to life beyond their school. Students can host an international student, go on a reciprocal exchange, or attend a conference. Our students have already made numerous strong connections with students in countries as far-flung as Australia, Scotland, Argentina, Singapore, Colombia, South Africa, India and Peru. As Round Square Global Member, CFIS can make further connections with schools from around the globe, through a combination of student exchanges, attendance at conferences, and teacher networking and collaboration.
