Giving at Atlanta International School 

AIS is a special place, founded on the power of language, inclusivity, critical thinking and the real-world application of learning. AIS is guided by its mission to build the next generation of courageous leaders who shape their world for the better.
Like many independent schools and universities in the United States, AIS is a nonprofit organization that relies on philanthropic gifts to fuel the daily experience of all students. At AIS, the main sources of private beyond tuition include the Eagles Fund, our annual giving program; Georgia GOAL, a state tax credit program to support need-based financial aid; and the Spring Benefit, our annual globally-themed gala and auction event. 

Ultimately, all gifts to AIS ensure our school is able to provide an incredible educational experience for every student.

The Eagles Fund

The Eagles Fund is the Atlanta International School’s annual fund, and is central to the school’s ability to offer this unique educational experience to every student. The Eagles Fund is the most important philanthropic priority of the school. 

All gifts to the Eagles fund help students THRIVE, INNOVATE, and BELONG. Click here to learn more about how the Eagles Fund makes a critical impact in the AIS student experience.

Financial Aid Tax Credit Program

Since its inception, more than 300 AIS students have received need-based financial aid through Georgia GOAL. Georgia GOAL is a student scholarship organization that helps schools like AIS leverage dollars from Georgia taxpayers to support financial aid. Georgia taxpayers who designate a portion of their tax liability towards AID scholarships can receive a 100% state income tax credit by participating in Georgia GOAL. The sign up process to participate takes just seconds. Click here to learn more about Georgia GOAL.

The Spring Benefit

The Spring Benefit is AIS’ largest annual fundraising event. Each year, guests are transported to a unique global designation to celebrate philanthropy through special performances, silent and live auctions, dinner, and dancing. This year, guests will Venture to Vietnam on May 14, 2022. All proceeds support the student experience at AIS. Save the date and look out for more details coming soon.
