Annual Fund & 1979 Society

The Annual Fund is the school’s most critical fundraising effort. While tuition covers the cost of education, the Annual Fund ensures our school has the resources necessary to make French International School of Oregon EXTRAORDINARY!

Support The Annual Fund Today

Each gift is 100% tax-deductible and goes to support the greatest need of the school, ensuring we can continue to provide dynamic opportunities and experiences to all our students.

Your participation is what matters! Parent participation is a demonstration of trust and investment in French International. Increased participation enables the school to boldly pursue the strategic initiatives that will continue to move our community forward. It also demonstrates to philanthropic foundations that our community is strong, united, and worthy of outside support. 

1979 Society

The 1979 Society is a community of leadership donors to honor their gift of $1,979 or greater— or grandparents and alumni who make a gift of $197 or greater —  honoring the year French International was founded. Membership benefits include:

  • Special communications from school leadership 
  • Recognition in the Annual Report on Philanthropy 
  • Invitation to an annual celebration honoring your leadership commitment to French International
  • Special event invitations
  • And more!

Matching gifts are included! Gifts totaling $1,979 must be made within the fiscal year (July 1–June 30).

"We want to emphasize the power each family in our community holds to make a direct impact. By supporting French International, we go beyond what tuition covers, providing our children with a world-class education. It's a shared effort that enhances not only individual learning experiences but the entire community, fostering a vibrant and enriching environment for all."

-Merritt Olson & Steve Baer, French International Parents
