French International Celebrates 1979 Society & Alumni Families

French International Celebrates 1979 Society & Alumni Families

On February 9, French International hosted the 1979 Society Soirée, celebrating philanthropy and our community’s commitment to French International. The Soirée included wine, refreshments, and a presentation from French International leadership.

The 1979 Society is a community of leadership donors who make a gift to the Annual Fund of $1,979 or more—or grandparents and alumni who make a gift of $197 or greater—honoring the year French International was founded.

Gifts from 1979 Society members made up nearly 40% of gifts to the Annual Find last year. The Annual Fund has supported:

  • 20+ guest speakers
  • New web radio equipment
  • $75,000 for new Chromebooks
  • $78,000 towards field trips
  • 3D printer for the STEAM curriculum
  • More than 1,300 books purchased for all ages
  • $53,000 for professional development
  • And much more!

Since the 1979 Society started in 2019, it has grown each year. During the 2022-23 school year, 98 people joined the 1979 Society, the largest in school history. This school year, we already have 85 donors who have given at the 1979 Society level, and we are excited to welcome more parents, grandparents, alumni, and alumni parents into this community of leadership donors.

On Saturday, February 10, French International celebrated alumni and alumni families at the Alumni Family reunion. French International is proud to have a robust community of alumni worldwide.

French International alumni continue to make us proud as global citizens. Alumni families are an essential part of our school community. They are part of our school history and have helped shape the strategic goals and vision of French International. Alumni and alumni families, please keep us updated on what you are up to by filling out the form on our alumni page.
