Please Give Today to the IYRS Annual Fund

Your gift to IYRS each year supports the school's most pressing needs and changes our students' lives.


More than 70% of our students require financial support in the form of scholarships and grants in order to attend IYRS each year. Many more students would be able to attain an IYRS education if more resources were available. Your gift helps make an IYRS education a reality for deserving students and helps set them on a path to a successful future.

Faculty & Program Needs

Your gift to the IYRS Annual Fund supports mission-critical educational needs like faculty salaries, building materials, tools, machinery, and technology. The IYRS Annual Fund helps source materials as diverse as imported wood to carbon fiber to 3D printers to CNC lathes that our students use each day in their programs. Ultimately, your gift helps ensure our classrooms, workshops, and labs offer the finest instruction and highest quality materials to support our students' experiential education.

Campus Improvements

The IYRS campus houses buildings built in 1831, 1903, and 2017, each requiring its own special care in our harborfront setting. Your gift provides resources for campus maintenance and upgrades so we may continue to provide a functional and beautiful physical environment for IYRS students, visitors, donors, and friends.
