For more information about Giving, take a look below at our frequently asked questions (FAQs).

Who is encouraged to give?

Anyone and everyone! Making a gift does not discriminate, and so are our philanthropic and sustainability projects. Our aim with you is to build a sustainable future together by nurturing, inspiring and enriching lives through education. Read more here on the projects that we are currently leading, and how you can be a part of our transformational work.

If I am already a part of the school community (staff, parent, student), is it compulsory that I donate?

No. While our goal is 100% participation by the school community, the school wishes to stress that donations are voluntary. Donations should be freely given with no expectations of personal gain other than due thanks and recognition. Hear what our current donors say about their experience donating to the Foundation, read more here.  

Why does the Alice Smith School invite donations, in addition to school fees?

The Alice Smith School is a not-for-profit organisation. Additional income sources such as donations from the PTA and the Foundation, allow the school to offer students special enhancements to their educational experience without affecting school fees. The donations also enable Alice Smith to expand the reach and scope of its charitable and philanthropic work and will help to secure the long term future of the school.

Be inspired by our stories and current projects here.

Do other international schools in Malaysia and the region raise money in this way?

Yes, many other not-for-profit schools have ‘giving’ programmes. Long established and highly reputable British and American international schools have annual fundraising programmes, having identified the need to supplement operating budgets to enhance student programmes. Fundraising through ‘giving’ is common practice in the British school system. Annual funds are recognised as the cornerstone of fund-raising for many independent academic institutions and have a proven record of positive impact. 

Is there a minimum amount I must donate?

No, all donations are gratefully accepted. The ultimate goal is 100% participation by the community and every contribution is valued and appreciated.

If I can't afford to donate, are there other ways I can help?

Of course! Your can choose to gift your time. Volunteerism plays an imperative role in giving. We are fortunate that our school community, from parents to staff, alumni and students have been supportive to our various fundraising initiatives. You can choose from these volunteering opportunities to support the Foundation:

Will my donation and volunteering make a difference?

Absolutely! Every gift has an impact in making a positive difference to our students, families, teachers and community. Maximising participation is a testament to our donors’ belief in what we are doing. It is also a statement to others that the Alice Smith School comprises a community actively involved in the advancement of its transformational philanthropic endeavours for the community and driving towards the long-term sustainability of the school. 

For example;

  • Contributions towards our Scholarships and Bursaries funds has enabled us to award the first ever recipient of the Tertiary Study Grant Award in 2020. Funding from this grant will help the scholar's tuition fees to their university of choice. 
  • Our Build Kindness campaign with Kechara Soup Kitchen Society where our volunteers are going to help distribute food provisions and be involved in the community Enhancement Programme.
  • The Foundation Charity Dinner where students, parents and teachers volunteer to raise funds in support of the service learning initiatives and charitable projects carried out by our secondary students.
