KIS 2008 – 2009 Annual Fund

Thank you to all who have made donations to the 2008 – 2009 KIS Annual Fund. To date, we have reached approximately 55% of this year’s Annual Fund goal of $100,000.

These funds are being used for:

- Making major IT improvements which include new computers for the Study Hall, projectors for the new “Smartboards”, projector upgrade for the Media Room, and upgrades for the Elementary School server room.
- Royalty fees for the All School Musical “BIG”
- Loch End Fitness Center additional equipment

The 2008 - 2009 Annual Fund campaign will continue until 30 June 2009. If you have not yet made a contribution to the 2008 – 2009 Annual Fund, I encourage you to join your fellow KIS alumni and parents with a gift to help us reach our goal. Your support promises to serve the students and staff of KIS.

Wish List donations

On behalf of the KIS Hiking Program, thank you Theresa Teves, Class of 1976 and Strother Purdy, Former Staff for the portable water filters!

Wish List Reminder

There are many elements that contribute to KIS unique character and its ability to offer a remarkable education to a diverse student body. These cannot be guaranteed without philanthropic support for the school. While the Annual Fund is the first priority of the school’s fund raising objective, occasionally special needs arise.

The following is a list of all Wish List items from 2008 - 2009 which KIS is still in need of. If you are interested in making these in-kind donations please contact Judy at mailto:music@kis.in
