Dear I-House Friends,
As 2014 draws to a close, I would like to say thank you for helping to make 2014 a year of inspiration and opportunity here at International House for our residents and our community.
With your support, we’ve accomplished some amazing things this year:
- 97 of our 586 residents (more than 15%) received needed scholarship aid for room and board.
- Residents have resources, training, and inspiration to conduct “Projects for Peace” like the Recycle Up! Ghana work of Torben Fischer and Manuel Schulze.
- Our Center for Intercultural Leadership is enhancing and extending the knowledge and intercultural competence of our worldwide I-House community.
It’s not too late – there are three days left to make a tax-deductible contribution in 2014.
Your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Schmidt Matching Challenge!
“The lifelong friendships formed at I-House are priceless, and have taught me the greatest lesson – kindness and compassion are universal languages, and they go a long way in forming strong bonds between people.”
— Ramit Malhorta, I-House Scholarship Recipient
I am continually inspired by the many stories of the friendships that were developed and learning experiences like Ramit’s from our esteemed alumni and our current residents. I welcome the opportunity to hear your story and ideas in 2015.
Thank you for being a part of our global community advancing a world of greater understanding!
Happy holiday wishes and peace in the new year!
Director of Development & Communications
