Funding the IB Toolkit

This page provides interested, candidate, and authorized International Baccalaureate® (IB) World Schools information, budgets, tools, and resources for sustainable financial planning. These can be used for short and long-term budget planning, presenting the IB and its programmes to stakeholders, as well as working with foundations and philanthropy investing in your school, schools, or district. These resources are for US schools only.

The International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) offers four international education programmes for students aged 3-19, all united by the IB philosophy and approaches to teaching and learning.
IB programmes aim to do more than other curricula by developing internationally minded people who recognize their common humanity and shared guardianship of the planet, and work to create a better and more peaceful world.

You can learn more about the International Baccalaureate here.

The IB journey

The IB journey is one of reflection, inquiry, and growth as a school. However, your school will not walk the journey alone. We work together throughout your school’s journey - with a shared vision and passion - to deliver our mission of creating a better world through education; to grow our diverse community of schools; and increase access to excellent education for students of all backgrounds. The IB Journey: Becoming an IB World School visualizes the process while citing key components along the way. Access The IB journey
