Your Gift Helps Sage International ‘Mind the Gap’

Mind The Gap

Mind the GAP (MTG) is Sage International's annual giving campaign. Your gift helps Sage bridge the gap between the state funding we receive and the cost of providing our 1,000 students a dynamic, world-class IB Education. Our MTG goal for this year is $146,000. Scroll down to lean about avaialble tax breaks when donating to Sage.

33% of Your MTG Gift Helps Fund a Teacher

Teachers, teachers, teachers! Each year, Sage employs more teachers than the state funds in order to deliver our IB curriculum.  33% of each MTG gift will go toward this Sustaining Gift and will help bridge our 'teacher gap'.  $54,000 fully funds one teacher (salary and benefits). What a great way to say 'thank you' to our amazing educators!

66% of Your MTG Gift - You Choose 

After making your MTG gift, you can direct 66% toward the gap of your choice by emailing MTG@sageinternationalschool.org and indicating the gift amount and your GAP choice from the list below. To pledge a later gift, email MTG@sageinternationalschool.org and indicate the pledge amount and your GAP choice from the list below. If a gift is made without sending an email to MTG@sageinternationalschool.org, 100% of the gift will go toward Fund-a-Teacher. 

Please direct my gift toward:
