Supporting the 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. To bridge the gap between the tuition and the costs of providing the educational experience.

At AIS, the main sources of private beyond tuition include the Eagles Fund, our annual giving fund; 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. 

All gifts, of every size, to AIS ensure our school is able to provide an exceptional experience for every student.


The Eagles Fund

The Eagles Fund is the annual fund at AIS, 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.

Changing Lives through Georgia GOAL

Georgia GOAL is a student scholarship organization that helps schools like AIS leverage support for financial aid. To sign up takes just seconds but makes a lifetime of difference to recipients. 

Since opening in 1985, 300 AIS students have received need-based financial aid through Georgia GOAL. Georgia taxpayers who designate a portion of their tax liability towards AIS scholarships can receive a 100% state income tax credit by participating in Georgia GOAL. Click here to learn more.

The Spring Benefit

The Spring Benefit is AIS’ largest annual fundraising event. Each year, guests are transported to a unique global destination to celebrate philanthropy through special performances, silent and live auctions, dinner, and dancing.

On May 14, 2022, guests Ventured to Vietnam to support the student experience at AIS. The 2023 Benefit destination will be announced soon.
