Donations In Memory Of Those We Lost
1 January 2020
Happy New Year! Hoping 2020 brings good health and happiness to you and yours throughout the year.
As you may know, our Board of Directors had a recent "Changing of the Guards." Mary Williamson (AIS Class of 1974) retired two months ago as Association President after serving 14 years on the board. Please join us in welcoming our
new President, Katherine Arens (AES Class of 1979), who has served on our
board since April 2017. Please view our Board page to meet the current team.
This new year, we begin planning our all-school 2021 Reunion. We are considering the Washington DC area again for the upcoming reunion although we
are exploring alternative locations close to international airports where board members and reunion planners are close enough to work with the hotel, caterers and others.
We had approximately 450 guests at the 2015 Reunion. With the growing size of our alumni population, it is an increasing challenge finding a location that can handle our group. Any reunion ideas or suggestions from you

CONVENIENT WAYS TO DONATE
The AIS/AES Alumni Association exists for you. All board members are volunteers, who are not paid for their time, who cover their own expenses for meetings and pay annual membership. There is no outside funding for this organization. That said, we ask from you for a small donation to support our operating costs. We recommend $25.00/per calendar year, although we are appreciative of whatever amount you can contribute.
Every year, your donation helps cover administrative costs incurred to keep the association up and running. Some of our bills include the website, web hosting, lawyer fees, fees to maintain our tax status as a non-profit organization and Paypal. Any remaining donations is applied towards down payments for our all-school reunions.
We also accept donations made In Memory Of for alumni, teachers and faculty who are no longer with us.
For your convenience, there are two ways you can contribute:
CREDIT CARDS/DEBIT CARDS
PAYPAL is an online payment service that allows individuals and businesses to transfer funds electronically. You can submit your $25 donation by credit or

For a great number of us who attended the American International School, now the American Embassy School, the alumni association has been a means to reconnect with "lost" friends and to build friendships with people with similar backgrounds. This continues to be a major part of our mission.
We very much enjoy hearing your news, your sharing precious memories, seeing your photos
and getting together with you when possible. Your support, not only financially
but in sharing your time with us, is very much appreciated.
