Philanthropy at CAIS
Assuring Students the Finest Chinese English Dual Language Program
In order to develop, deliver and sustain a quality education, CAIS, like most independent schools, depends on your charitable support. Your gift supports the people and programs that makes CAIS unique. This means talented teachers, small classes, resources in two languages, and exceptional offerings in all areas, from the arts to sciences, to create a rich immersion experience for your child.
Gifts are necessary because tuition covers only about 85% of the costs of operating the school. That is why we must turn to trustees, parents, grandparents, alumni, friends, foundations, and auxiliary programs for financial support.
Tuition is deliberately set below the actual cost of operating the school because CAIS is committed to socioeconomic diversity and its many benefits to your child. In addition, the lowered tuition provides the community an opportunity to make a tax-deductible, philanthropic contribution and sets an example for your child and others.
