Greetings from the advancement office, and thank you for your interest in supporting Columbia Independent School! It is my hope that this information will help clarify the many ways to support our school and the importance of your contributions. From this portion of the web site, you may contact the advancement office with questions, learn more about the Pride Fund, understand planned giving and our exciting Capital Campaign opportunities, and make a secure gift online.

The growth of CIS has been due to the generosity of our many parents, alumni, grandparents and friends. I am often asked what our various giving programs support, and why they are all necessary. Each of our avenues for giving benefits a different aspect of CIS, but all our vital to fulfill our mission. Your donation makes a difference in the lives of every student.

I look forward to speaking with you about how we can make a lasting impact together, and allow every child to be whoever they want to be.
