The JAIS Institutional Advancement program was created in order to help supplement the school’s tuition revenue so that JAIS is able to maintain its high standard of education and course offerings. Dependence on tuition alone would require JAIS to have full enrollment to cover the expense of running its educational program. However, international schools rarely enjoy full enrollment year after year due to the relatively high turnover of the student body and the difficulty in predicting the next year’s numbers.
The Annual Fund is the primary vehicle for providing supplementary financial support for JAIS. Parents and alumni of the school are asked to donate to the Annual Fund at a level that is meaningful for them. Seeking 100% donor participation in the Annual Fund is paramount for its success. A successful Annual Fund means a healthy budget for JAIS!
