The Pride Fund

It all adds up!

 The Pride Fund, our annual giving campaign, touches all aspects of CIS programming and helps CIS remain a leader in independent education in Missouri.  These 100% tax-deductible gifts are the difference between a good education and a great one; supporting professional development, upgrading technology, strengthening our athletics and arts programs, and retaining top faculty and staff.  

 Our goal for the 2017-2018 Pride Fund is $150,000, approximately 10% higher than our goal last year.    In order to reach this goal, we need your help!  Every gift matters.   It all adds up!  These gifts, large and small, sustain our programs and allow us to continue to build a vibrant and dynamic community of learners.  Additionally, you can choose to direct your contribution to the 2017-2018 Pride Fund to an area most significant to you.
