M. Crist Fleming Endowment
The M. Crist Fleming Endowment for International Understanding and Leadership was established as a memorial to the School’s Founder and initially made possible by a $500,000 bequest from TASIS alumnus John E. Palmer ’64. This seed money is being augmented by donations (to date, over 130) from other TASIS alumni, parents, and friends to honor the accomplishments of TASIS Founder M. Crist Fleming. The Endowment has been carefully invested to provide for preservation of principal while earning a steady return. The Endowment supports student involvement in international service projects pertaining to refugees, immigration, homelessness, health, education, and environmental sustainability. It funds the TASIS Senior Humanities Program, and aims to cross linguistic, ethnic, and national borders among our students through theater and music, a tactic for which we already have an admirable tradition and reputation.
The Endowment also provides resources to invite distinguished guest speakers and attract and retain world-class faculty – the soul of the TASIS experience. It is used to fund student scholarships, as well as for the professional development of our teachers. The Endowment does not finance capital projects. It is managed by the TASIS Foundation, Inc., an American non-profit educational foundation, with supervision by the TASIS Foundation Switzerland.
Donations to the M. Crist Fleming Endowment Fund for International Understanding and Leadership honor our Founder and will continue to help bring Mrs. Fleming’s dream to life for current and future generations of TASIS students.
