Supporting Ecolint

Our school is a not-for-profit foundation which is entirely financed by school fees. We solicit our school community to help us bring about essential projects and improvements, as enhancing each aspect of our provision is one of our priorities.

Philanthropy at the heart of our history

Our school owes a large part of its success and reputation to several generations of parents, alumni, philanthropists and friends who have lent us their financial support. Still today we encourage our school community to continue that culture of giving, and to allow future generations of students not only to blossom, but also to stand up for a better world.

A flourishing school

The International School of Geneva has doubled its capacity over the last ten years, from 2'200 students in 2005 to more than 4'400 today. To support this development, the Ecolint Foundation invested more than CHF 100 million in its infrastructure over the same period. This has been possible thanks to donations, which represent more than 25% of this amount.

Our achievements

The improvements that we have effected on our three campuses thanks to the support of our community ranges from simple landscaping to the construction of essential infrastructures, and innovative educational initiatives. The various projects are financed, in differing proportions in each case, by the Foundation of the International School of Geneva, parents, alumni, staff and corporate partners. We are extremely grateful to all our donors for their constant support and generosity.
