Vita Annual Fund
MAKE A DONATION
Vita, Latin for “life,” is the name given to our Annual Fund. When parents choose Denver Montclair International School for their child, they choose an international education, which is a distinctive way of life. The Vita Annual Fund enables DMIS to fulfill its mission of helping students experience a unique way of learning and seeing the world.
Your gift to the Vita Annual Fund provides essential support for the school’s talented faculty, student opportunities, and innovation of academic programs. In 2011-12, Vita Annual Fund accounted for approximately 5% of DMIS’ operating budget. In recent years, it has provided much-needed resources for campus-wide IT upgrades, enabling students and teachers to expand learning through technology. For 2012-13, DMIS intends to continue upgrades to IT and math & science programming, as well as to increase opportunities for staff development.
DMIS strives for 100% participation in the Vita Annual Fund from parents, teachers, staff, and the Board of Directors and also encourages past parents, grandparents, alumni, and special friends to make gifts. Contributing to the Vita Annual Fund is the best way to demonstrate our belief in the international education offered at DMIS.
Gifts to the Vita Annual Fund are tax-deductible and may qualify Colorado taxpayers for state income tax credit. Please review the tax benefits for which you may be eligible. Gifts may be mailed to DMIS with attention to Vita Annual Fund, dropped off at the front office, or donated online.
