What is a Development Office?
Starting in March, 2017 BIS established a Development Office, joining a small but growing number of international schools in Europe. The Development Office aims to grow a culture of ownership and philanthropy from the BIS community. Because BIS is a non-profit, it really is “our” school. However, many people do not know what the Development Office does. In short, the Development Office is charged with:
- Building relationships with the BIS community
- Identifying those parties that are interested in developing the mission of the school and
- Working with these parties for an investment in the school.
A Philanthropic Advisor
There is an old saying that charity begins at home. I love this adage because to me it means charity is something personal, something we learn and not something that we are born with. Moreover, becoming philanthropic is not easy, but as Oscar Wilde once said, “The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.”
Making a financial contribution should not be done lightly and at the BIS Development Office we work with the donor as much as we work for the school to make the most out of every donation. This includes consulting financial experts and tax advisors to craft the best financial outcome with the biggest impact.
Alumni & Friends
At BIS we pride ourselves for our inclusivity so "alumni" means anyone who wants to stay in touch with the BIS community including students - even students who have not graduated from BIS, parents, staff and friends. If you send us your name and contact information, we will keep you informed - but not overwhelmed - of the latest news at BIS.
