Corporate and Foundation Support

We value our Corporate and Foundation Partners!

Corporations and Foundations provide financial support for IMSA’s programs through grants, matching gifts and sponsorships and their time and talent through their volunteer engagement.  IMSA’s 650 residential students and the thousands of students and teachers in programs throughout the state and globe are able to experience unique programs and support because of these partnerships.   

Each gift makes a difference!

  • IMSA students are provided with the capacity to compete in Robotics tournaments, research alternative energy sources, participate in advanced chemistry lab experiences, and partner on STEM projects with other students, teachers, and experts, as far away as China. 
  • IMSA faculty and staff share their expertise of inquiry based, hands-on techniques for teaching using real world problems and discovery and reach out to teachers and students across the state and globe, serving thousands each year, through programs such as IMSA FUSION and Summer@IMSA.
