A Message from ACSF’s Chairman

Dear Friends and Family of ACS,

As our ACS schools are not fully funded by the government, they have had a long tradition of raising private funds to ensure that future generations of ACSians can enjoy an enhanced education and experience in their school years. ACSF complements the fundraising efforts of the individual ACS schools which generally focus on infrastructure and project-specific needs while the ACSF looks at programs for both the ACS family and the community in which we operate.

As the next 100 years of the ACS story is written, we foresee that the schools’ needs are likely to change over time as we strive to continue to deliver a well-rounded education in an increasingly complex and competitive world. To ensure the ACSF remains relevant and responsive to the needs of the schools and community at large, these non-infrastructural funding programmes will be reviewed regularly, updated, and approved by our Board.

We hope that you will join us in preserving the ACS values and our tradition of a well-rounded, Christian-based education for generations to come through your giving. Your gift will significantly impact the growth, nurturing and development of our students as they prepare for life to serve society and nation, and support the community.

We are grateful and thankful of the generous support of people and organisations like you, because together, we get to help educate students and train the educators, as we prepare them to become tomorrow’s leaders.

Cheo Chai Hong / Chairman Of The Board

How to Give


The Endowment Fund

Donors who do not require tax deductibility are encouraged to donate to the unrestricted Endowment Fund. One of the Foundation’s long term objective is grow it sufficiently over the long term so that, over time, it is large enough to generate the financial resources needed to ensure the sustainability of school-initiated, faculty and alumni-focused programs.

DONATE NOW

The IPC Fund

Donors who give to the IPC Fund qualify for tax deduction under the prevailing tax provisions. Donors will get to enjoy tax deductions of 2.5 times or 250 percent of the qualifying donation amount in the next tax season, i.e. for every $1 donated, $2.50 will be deducted from their assessable income.

IPC funds are restricted funds and gifts to this fund must be disbursed to an IPC within 5 years of receipt. Until the Endowment fund is well established where we will have 2 sources of funding, these shorter term funds are used for funding the ACS schools’ programs which support or enhance their education, or promote certain qualities and values in the students. The community at large may also benefit from the IPC fund via school values-in-action programs.

You may also make a pledge, a signed and dated commitment to make a gift by paying over a period of time, allowing you to spread payments and tax benefits over a period up to 5 years. (Typically this type of donation can often allow you to make a larger commitment).
