The CFIS Annual Fund provides much needed support to our students and school through several key initiatives — the Head's Initiative Fund, Mission Impact Fund, Bridging Bursaries program, and the Round Square Travel Studies Bursary.
Your donations, of meaningful and important amounts to you, are tax deductible. Through the donation form below, you may contribute a one-time gift, or monthly donation. Your gift will be gratefully received and funds allocated as requested.
Head's Initiatives Fund
The Head's Initiatives Fund directs 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 Fund
The Mission Impact Fund directly impacts students and ensures they will continue to have access to leading-edge technology, equipment, and spaces. This fund also funds international opportunities that are over and above the existing curriculum. Donor contributions will be directed to:
Fine and Performing Arts
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math)
Environmental Initiatives Strategy
The CFIS Bridging Bursaries program provides bursaries to current CFIS families, with students entering grades 1 to 12, who are facing temporary financial difficulties, due to, for example, job loss or reduced income due to illness). Since the inception of the program in 2016, almost $400,000 in bursaries have been provided to our students.
Round Square Travel Studies Bursary
The Round Square Travel Studies Bursary provides our students with 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. Created through the generous donation of a CFIS family in 2022, this annual bursary assists students to participate in Round Square activities, regardless of financial obstacles families may face.
Beginning in 2020-21, the CFIS community was invited to begin contributing the Annual Fund. The support of our community has been incredible, with over $182,000 donated to date!
You can donate to the CFIS Annual Fund below! One time donors will receive a tax receipt within 30 days. For recurring monthly donations, charitable tax receipts will be issued at year end.
