The Fundraising Association was formed in 1996, when the school was founded. The Members of the Association are community leaders in the field of economics, politics and science, parents and people who realized the importance of an International School in the region of Dresden.
Major companies also consider the school a key requirement when they are wanting to relocate, therefore making it essential to further foreign investment. They all volunteer to support the Dresden International School and its community.
Board Chair: Prof. Dr. Martin Gillo
Board members: Prof. Dr. Michael Beitelschmidt, Dirk Burghardt, Evelyn Chalmakoff, Frank Lepschy, Christoph Rabe, Ralf Stölzel, Antje Schönberg
The Fundraising Association raises funds to ensure the school's continued development on a secure financial basis. Since the school is a non-profit organisation, DIS relies on much valued support through donations and sponsorship.
The Fundraising Association is committed to support the school's goals and to ensure that Dresden International School remains a key factor in the economic and cultural development of the greater Dresden region.
From time to time the school will approach the Fundraising Association with the request for funding of certain projects which improve education and student's life.The biggest fundraising event of the year is the Golf Tournament coming up on September 9, 2017.
