Fundraising at IHS
We want all IHS students and staff to have the tools they need to thrive!
Below is a summary of the groups that raise and distribute funds at Ingraham. We encourage all FOI members to contribute in a personally meaningful way, whether financially or through the gift of your time.
These groups are careful stewards of the funds they raise. We encourage you to give what you can, wherever you choose. To simplify things, we've created a Joint Donation Form that can be found on our Forms page.
Friends of Ingraham (FOI): FOI raises money for all students at Ingraham. Its primary fundraising mechanisms are the Direct Appeal and the Annual Auction. Funds are distributed year-round through grants for educational materials and supplies, support for Link Crew, various clubs and activities, sports, arts, and performance-related needs. FOI is able to support all programs at Ingraham because of the generous donations we receive from Ingraham families, friends, and alumni.
Bright Futures: Bright Futures is a program at Ingraham that allows the Ingraham counselors to more comprehensively support our students who are experiencing poverty, housing insecurity, or homelessness. A portion of the initial funds were used to set up our Pride Closet, a place where students can access basic items necessary for success, such as school supplies, warm clothes, dry socks, healthy snacks, meals for weekends and breaks, hygiene products, and more.
Ingraham Performing Arts Boosters (IPAB): As the name suggests, this booster raises money to support Ingraham’s bands, orchestras, theatre, and choirs. IPAB fundraises through an annual auction, through coffee and seat cushion sales, concessions, ad sales, and in many other creative ways.
Ingraham Athletics Boosters (IABC): This booster raises money to support varsity, junior varsity, united, and club sports. IABC raises money at an annual breakfast, through “shout outs” at sports events, and ad sales in sports programs.
Corrie Lazar Fund: The Corrie Lazar fund raises money to help cover the costs of IB testing for those who need assistance. The Lazar family created the fund to honor their daughter, a 2006 IHS graduate, who was tragically killed in 2009.
