Annual GISC Gala

A Special Evening to Benefit GISC
Held in the springtime, the GISC Annual Gala is our largest fundraising event of the year, as well as our community’s biggest party! Every year, our Gala raises money both to support our general operating budget and to fund a special “Fund-A-Need” capital improvement project that allows us to better serve our teachers and their students. At the same time, the Gala is a much-beloved social event attended by our parents, donors, Board, faculty, and staff, as well as members of the Chicagoland DACH business community and local consular offices.

From GISC With Love

On May 7, 2022, our community gathered in person for the first time in three years for From GISC With Love, an evening in the world of James Bond. Presented by HARIBO USA and hosted at the Ravenswood Event Center with over 250 guests in attendance, our special evening raised over $273,000 to benefit our school, with over $140,000 allocated to support internal renovations to our building, which will ensure it can accommodate our continued growth. This project is the first phase of a comprehensive initiative to reimagine our facilities and space. 
GISC is extremely grateful to all our sponsors, donors, and volunteers who helped to make the 2022 Gala such a special return to a beloved tradition. Vielen Dank – we’ll see you in 2023!
