Indianapolis Classical Schools is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Our mission is to prepare world-class citizens by providing a rigorous, classical liberal arts education in an intentionally-diverse environment. As a charter school, we do not receive funding for facilities, so we must raise funds to fill in the gap.
This annual fundraising campaign helps to fund our annual operations. Because we receive only about two-thirds of the amount of funding that traditional public schools receive, it helps to make up the funding gap and allows us to provide competitive compensation to our exceptional faculty and create enrichment opportunities for students.
This capital campaign helps to support the growth of Indianapolis Classical Schools by establishing Riverside High School’s permanent home at the Heslar Naval Armory. ICS obtained the Armory at no cost but must raise the funds necessary to preserve the building and transform it into a modern high school because we do not receive property tax funding that traditional public schools use for facilities’ costs. This campaign, which seeks to raise $2.9 million, will help to fund renovations to the Armory.
This campaign supports Indianapolis Classical Schools through planned estate gifts, bequests, etc. You may wish to remember Indianapolis Classical Schools in your will and can choose to set up your gift in many different forms.
