Sage International is one of only three Public K-12 IB Schools in the nation!

WHAT IS "MIND THE GAP" AND HOW DOES YOUR GIFT HELP?

MIND THE GAP (MTG) is Sage International's annual fundraising campaign where we ask our Sage Community to help 'bridge the gap' between the state funding we receive (the lowest per-student funding in the nation) and what it actually costs to operate our top-notch K-12 IB World School. As an Idaho School of Choice, Sage is not part of any local school district and does not receive any funding from local tax dollars. For the 2021-22 school year, we anticipate our "Gap" in funding to be $100,000, which is about $100 per student. We need your help to reach that goal!

EXACTLY WHERE DOES YOUR MTG SUPPORT GO?

The "Teacher Gap"- Each year, based on the number of students Sage serves, the state gives us funding for a certain number of teachers. Each year, we hire more teachers than the state funds in order to deliver our outstanding IB curriculum. We also pay our top-notch teachers above the amount the state provides because they deserve it, and earn every penny caring for our (your) students! From a funding perspective, this is our 'Teacher Gap'.

HOW MUCH TO GIVE?

We are a diverse community with over 300 of our students' families (nearly 1/3) living near or below the poverty level. We love that we truly represent our entire community and are able to provide 'IB for ALL'. In other words, please give at a level that is meaningful to your family with our $100,000 goal in mind. We receive MTG donations anywhere from $10 to $5,000 - and each gift is greatly appreciated and helps us reach our goal. Remember, gifts to Sage are entitled to generous tax deductions and credits. Also, check with your employer to see if they match donations, we have many generous companies in the area such as Micron that do and can greatly multiply your gift. We thank you so much for your support, we are in this together and couldn't do it without you!
