It is with the support of generous donors like you that we are able to provide the innovative educational and community programs that are an integral part of a holistic and rigorous education, and make our community unique. We are able to serve our special student population with important programs and activities including daily language classes, arts, tutoring, and the IB Programme.
Georgia Gives Day is Tuesday, November 28, but the campaign has officially started. Click on the image to donate.
GAgives and GivingTuesday are two of the fastest-growing giving movements of the past decade, and they team up now, supporting nonprofits. By ICS participating, we get the chance to be part of a worldwide end-of-year giving-season kickoff.
The purpose of GAgives on #GivingTuesday is to empower all Georgia nonprofits to increase funds, gain new supporters, and raise awareness through one 24-hour state-wide marathon of giving. Bringing together thousands of the state’s charities on one full-featured online donation platform, (GAgives.org) they make it easy for nonprofits, like ICS, to raise money online, and easy for Georgians to discover them and donate directly.

Since it is the school’s 15th anniversary, we want to launch a campaign for the 15 days leading up to GA Gives Day on Giving Tuesday. We are calling it #15for15, and we want stories to represent our 15 years. If you would like to contribute an ICS story with a picture for us to display on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, please email [email protected].
Whether you have $1 or $10,000 to give, it all adds up to support our needs, so:
1. Go to www.gagivesday.org
2. Search for International Community School
3. DONATE… and share this news with family and friends!
The highest donors in the State will have a donation made in their name to a nonprofit of their choice– $500 for 1st place, $150 for 2nd and $100 for 3rd.

Why Georgia Gives Day?
Georgia Gives Day is an opportunity for everyone, in every corner of the state, to support the causes that make Georgia great. Many of us give to and volunteer for causes. Yet there are many of us who aren’t directly asked to give or to volunteer. Many of us want to give but aren’t sure what nonprofit to support or don’t know what their donation might do to make a difference.
Georgia Gives Day is an initiative that has been co-created by the nonprofit sector itself. It doesn’t support one cause or one locale – it’s all of us in the state’s nonprofit sector pulling together to ask you to stop and consider your life and your community without nonprofits. How much less connected, less vibrant, less interesting and less supported would our communities be without them?
So, we are asking all Georgians, on November 17th, to give a little and share a little so that, together, we can do a lot for the causes that we all care about. Whether you have $10 or $10,000 to give, it all adds up to greater impact on the issues that support and enrich our lives and make our local communities thrive.
