Twin Cities German Immersion School

A nonprofit organization

Together we do more!

We are excited to kick-off the TCGIS Fall Fundraising Campaign in support of the TCGIS Annual Fund! 

Launched in conjunction with Martinstag—the German holiday celebrating generosity—and culminating with Minnesota’s day of generosity, Give to the Max Day, our Fall Campaign plays a critical role in helping our school achieve its Annual Fund budgetary goal of $110,000. 

To build upon the foundation of generosity at TCGIS, a group of TCCGIS alumni families have put together a $1,300 match that will be unlocked once our community reaches $1,300 in gifts from new donors. First-time gifts of any size are eligible, so let’s jumpstart our efforts by unlocking this special match right away! (And remember to spread the word to your family, friends and neighbors). 

We hope you will consider joining in this year’s Fall Campaign as you are able. Gifts to TCGIS come in many forms, all of which are critical to our school’s success. Thank you for all the ways you support our school community!

P.S.—TCGIS offers lots of ways to make your gift, including recurring gifts, employer matches, pledges and more. Contact Katharina Schirg for more information. 

Committed to our mission of “Innovative education of the whole child through German immersion,” our public charter school has grown from 46 students in 2005 to more than 600 in grades K-8 in 2022. Learn more about us here
