Since 1978, CINS has operated as a nonprofit, volunteer-staffed organization. CINS makes the most of every dollar it receives and is supported by the community it serves, including parents, neighbors, businesses, houses of worship, civic associations and PTAs and PTOs.
There are two ways to support CINS:
Become a member. Membership dues pay for the necessary costs of running an organization - web hosting, printing, accounting services and so on.
Make a direct contribution to the Excellence in Education Grants Fund. These contributions go directly into the Grady cluster schools in the form of teacher grants. Last year we awarded 20 grants totaling almost $8000.
Help us start the school year with your support! Fill out the form and use the links below to remit subscription/ donation money OR print and mail our downloadable form with your payment.
Membership dues fund CINS' vital work of fostering communication, advocating for our schools and helping students directly through our teacher grants. Dues are payable for the school calendar year.
Donations are designated for Excellence in Education grants that support classroom innovation in Grady cluster schools.

Donors Choose - Grady Cluster teachers frequently post projects on the Donors Choose website. To learn about specific funding needs please visit donorschoose.org and search on any of the Grady Cluster schools (Grady High School, Inman Middle School, Centennial Academy, Hope-Hill Elementary, Mary Lin Elementary, Springdale Park Elementary, and Morningside Elementary.)
Individual school foundations - Each school within the Grady cluster now has its own foundation. Different foundations have different funding priorities, and all welcome contributions from the community. For details, please visit the schools' PTA/PTO websites.
