A Day of Opportunity    ** New** 
On 22 August we are holding a Giving Day. On that day, we aim to raise $50,000, and for just one day, your gift will be doubled by generous matching donors from within our community. It’s an all or nothing opportunity, and we’re hoping to reach our campaign goal within the 24-hour period. You can follow the live countdown, and watch our video about the campaign featuring IGS students, Principal Shauna Colnan and Deputy Head of High School Paul Galea here. Please donate to help us empower IGS students now and into the future!
