The Eagles Fund

Charitable gifts are an important part of every independent school’s healthy financial profile.

Each year, approximately 10% of the operating budget comes from contributions to the Eagles Fund that support everyday aspects of school life.

Gifts to the Eagles Fund allow AIS to:
  • recruit and retain the highly skilled faculty necessary to deliver AIS’ rigorous academic program

  • maintain facilities and learning spaces conducive to innovation and collaboration

  • provide financial aid to students in need

  • The 1984 Club

    We acknowledge the importance of our generous donors by membership in The 1984 Club, our leadership gift society. Leadership gifts begin at $1,984 with each level of giving providing recognition and additional benefits.

    Your gift, in an amount that is meaningful to you, is greatly appreciated and sends an important message the larger community. 100% participation in the Eagles Fund tells foundations and corporations that there is deep investment and belief in AIS, its mission, and its future.

  • Donor Advised Funds

    A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a philanthropic vehicle established at a public charity. It allows a donor to make a charitable contribution to that public charity and be eligible for an immediate tax deduction, then recommend grants to qualified charitable organizations over time.

    Since the initial contribution to the DAF is eligible for tax deduction, the donor cannot receive any goods or services from AIS. Event tickets and sponsorships are not eligible for DAF donations because they contain benefits that are not tax deductible.

    Also, a DAF cannot be used to pay a personal pledge made by the donor. If you plan to make a gift from a DAF, please contact Charlotte Smith

    Donors who give through a private foundation, donor-advised fund, Benevity and other similar organizations cannot receive any goods or services from Atlanta International School because the initial contribution is eligible for a tax deduction. Event tickets and sponsorships are not eligible for directed gifts outlined above because they contain benefits that are not tax deductible.

    Many employers have moved to utilizing third-party vendors, such as Benevity, to facilitate workplace giving and matching gift campaigns. Charitable giving through these vendors carries the same tax implications as donor-advised funds. If you have any questions about a donor-advised fund or one of these vendors, please contact  Charlotte Smith.
  • Matching Gifts

    Many employers support charitable giving through matching gift programs. In some cases, companies will match contributions from spouses, directors and retired employees. These programs are a great way to double, possibly even triple, the size of your gift. Please contact your company's Personnel Director or Matching Gifts Coordinator for details on how to participate.
