Thank you for your support!  So far in 2019 we have raised nearly $30,000.  We now have more than a quarter of a million dollars in our IPED Endowment Fund. This fund enables our students to pursue internships, language immersion programs, and other field placements which provide alternative learning experiences to support their career goals of becoming global changemakers.
