Sustaining Our Future
We believe that sustainable work is community-led. As part of the schools commitment to meeting the number one priority of our students, a greener and more sustainable future, we have designed a foundational campaign for donations, and two community campaigns to allow as many members of our association as possible to be involved. The first community campaign is this EcoBond initiative. The second will be a traditional series of community events and opportunities for naming to support specific programmatic or facility needs.
Our goal is clear: to minimize fossil fuel dependency and create a school that champions sustainability. And we want you to be a part of this transformative journey!
Giving has long been a tradition here at ISS. Countless volunteer hours support our programs; hosting student athletes, chaperoning dances, the Booster Club, supporting Arts events, reading in classrooms, and of course, the tireless efforts of our PTA, our Board of Trustees and our dedicated staff.
Think of your own ISS experience, think of the array of choices open to you, the expectation that you were up to the challenge and how you benefited from those volunteer hours. Think you would like to give something back? Now there are opportunities for you to support our programs through your gift. Cement your name in history at ISS through our Legacy Wall Tile Fundraiser! We invite you to purchase a personalized tile on our ISS Legacy Wall in the foyer of the new sports hall. Tiles can be purchased to commemorate your time at ISS. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to become a permanent piece of ISS history!
A Cause for Compassion
Here at ISS, we respect who we are not just where we are from. World events have always affected various members of our community directly, given we are from everywhere. As such, it is important to remember that as we address recent concerns, we must listen to one another to help understand and cope with an ever-changing world. To quote Conrad Hughes a fellow educator in Geneva, “Wars create fear, anxiety, distress but also scapegoating, bullying and ostracism. It is our first duty as educators to know our students, where they come from and the extent to which they might be affected by the conflict in question.”
Take a strong stance to demonstrate the values necessary to create ‘a better and more peaceful world.
Giving to our ISS Förderverein allows you to share in the responsibility of supporting our students, their education and the world that they will inherit and your tax-deductible gift can make a difference. A high level of overall participation can send a message that our school will always inspire, challenge and actively support our students and each other to become positive participants in a changing world.
Projects supported by the ISS Förderverein in recent years include the updating of the sports and recreational facilities on the Degerloch pitch, the refurbishment and extension of Science facilities in both Degerloch and Sindelfingen, major changes to the playground facilities in Sindelfingen and investment in the development of the Learning Commons collaborative spaces on both campuses.

The floor plan for the new buildings and the rendering are absolutely perfect and the ideas we’ve come up with and discussed have really been taken into consideration.
