The Institute Annual Fund is where alumni, friends, parents, students, faculty, and staff provide resources that are applied directly to support MIIS students and the Institute’s educational mission.
The Annual Fund turns individual gifts of all sizes into support for key aspects of a the Institute education. We put every dollar to immediate use for areas of greatest need.
Thanks to gifts made to the Annual Fund, the Institute is able to provide scholarship support to students, sustain a robust academic community, and attract and retain world-class faculty.
Every gift to the Institute Annual Fund – no matter the size – makes a sizeable difference! For example, gifts from more than 700 donors last year added up to over $3 million!
It’s never too soon to think about giving back. Giving to the Institute Annual Fund sends a message to students and faculty that alumni, friends, foundations, corporations, and other major donors think the education provided by MIIS brings value to the world.
In addition, many donors look at alumni giving as a vote of confidence in their school and often examine the percentage of alumni giving when they are considering making their own gifts. This participation rate also factors into college ranking systems. High marks help to attract the most talented students and faculty in the world.
The Institute Annual Fund offers special recognition to donors of all ages. You will be recognized on the public annual Donor Roll and your name will be featured on the interactive Donor Wall on campus.
