As we begin our twenty-ninth year for The Institute of Creative Problem Solving for Gifted and Talented Students, I would like to share an urgent message. Our major donor who has supported the program for the past 15 years, is no longer able to continue his donations. This means that in order to maintain the program at no cost to the families of the participants, I need to reach out to all of our current and past families for support. If you work for a company that has funds for sponsoring extra curricula educational programs or you personally are able to assist us in funding the ICPS program consider this a good time to GIVE BACK. Please share this information with friends and families. To contact us or to make a donation click on the funding button at the top of this page.
