Annual Fund

The Annual Fund is a yearly campaign that provides funds to support the school’s highest priorities in any given year. These funds help provide enrichment programs and the academic extras that tuition dollars do not cover, and allow the school to address needs as they arise. The annual fund provides an important avenue for the community to support our mission and develop a more meaningful connection with our goals and priorities.

­­The CFIS Annual Fund provides funds to support the school’s highest priorities each year. Donors can direct funds into four areas:

  1. Head’s Initiatives - 2022-23 priorities are focused on investments in student health, well-being and participation in active pursuits
  2. Mission Impact - Fine and Performing Arts, Athletics, STEM, International Opportunities and Environmental Initiatives
  3. Bridging Bursaries
  4. Round Square Travel Studies Bursaries
