The Weihnachtsbazar is one of our many fundraising events. This year, we are having a “German Weihnachtsmarkt” for the first time to support German ISD.

Annual Fund
German ISD’s Annual Fund Drive, which is conducted once during the school year, gives you an opportunity to make a tax deductible gift to the school that helps fund a need outside of the regular operating budget. It assists in lessening the costs associated with keeping our competitive programs and in providing the excellent education you have come to expect.

At German ISD with every day anew, our students’ faces light up with understanding as they discover the exciting world around them. Your Annual Fund gift supplies the tools students need to open the door to that world. Please join us in enriching your children’s lives by making a pledge today! Our goal is 100% participation by parents, faculty, and board. Reaching a high level of participation is crucial in obtaining outside support, as foundations look for a substantial level of commitment within organizations they choose to fund.

Feel free to stop by, call, or email us with any questions.

Planned Giving
German ISD is in the initial stages of establishing a planned giving program. Gifts have been made to German ISD in the form of bequests. We welcome the opportunity to talk about a planned gift that could be advantageous to both the donor and German ISD.

Gifts to German International School of Dallas may be made by cash, e-check, VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover Card, by being named beneficiary of a life insurance policy, inclusion in estate planning, or through gifts of appreciated stock. Please contact our treasurer, Nicola Bremer, at 214-507-0130 or email so we can assist you in making a gift with which you will be pleased.
