A MESSAGE FROM OUR 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 programs 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.

Mr Cheo Chai Hong
Chairman of the Board

HOW CAN I HELP?

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.

The Endowment Fund

Donors who do not require tax deductibility are encouraged to donate to the unrestricted Endowment Fund in order to grow its balance in the long term. Over time, it is hoped that the income from this endowment will achieve the long-term goal of generating the financial resources needed to ensure the sustainability of school-initiated, faculty and alumni-focused programs.

The IPC Fund

Donors to the IPC Fund qualify for tax deduction under the prevailing tax provisions. These are restricted funds and gifts to this fund must be disbursed to an IPC within 5 years of receipt. The immediate beneficiaries of our IPC Fund are the ACS schools in Singapore for programs which support or enhance education, promote certain qualities and values in the students, or may benefit the community at large.

Other Ways to Give

A recurring gift is an easy, automatic way to support ACSF with a continuous and dependable source of funding. Choosing to give recurring gifts enables you to make a more generous gift than thought possible by spreading the gifts out over a longer period of time.

A pledge is 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). We will create a document for you that properly addresses your giving intent. 

Non-cash gifts can come in the form of securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds etc.), real estate or other assets. 

Please contact us at enquiries@theacsfoundation.org should you wish to give a recurring gift, pledge or non-cash gift.

Keepsake ACS Badges

Cleave & Company, court jewellers of the British Royal Family, was commissioned specially to handcraft these mementos for the ACS Foundation, blending new technology with traditional goldsmith and enameling techniques. As there are only a few badges left, they will be given as a token of appreciation for donations of $100 or more upon request.   

For more information, please contact us at enquiries@theacsfoundation.org.
