Alumni Challenge 2015
To Continue Dalat’s Legacy to the Next Generation
A Dalat Alumnus from the self-titled Dalat Evac Pack* has issued a challenge for all Dalat Alumni to get involved in continuing the legacy of Dalat for the next 30 years. This anonymous Dalat benefactor has offered to match all donations from the Dalat Evac Pack given between October to December 2015 up to US$25,000!

Two of your own, Mrs. Carolyn Cathey Castelli, Class of 1968; and Mr. Mark Overgaard, Class of 1967, have volunteered to lead the Evac Pack into this challenge to help improve Dalat School education for a new generation of students. Carolyn is the coordinator and Mark is the logistics manager.
Will you help Dalat School fulfill its mission and continue the legacy? Your gift will be doubled and make a HUGE impact as Dalat School raises US$400,000 before the end of 2016 to build a new library, classrooms, dorm, and cafeteria!
*Evac Pack is a term for Dalat alumni who experienced the years of transition in the 1960s.

Give an Honor or a Memorial
For a minimum gift of $500 you can honor a teacher, staff member, dorm parent, or classmate who made an impact on you at Dalat School. A letter will be sent to your special person (if not deceased) notifying them of that recognition, and it will be listed with your name in all campaign communications, reports, and on the Dalat alumni room plaque, if we reach our goal.
Get a C-123 Plane Commemorative Patch
Any gift to the Alumni Challenge before the end of 2015 will receive a commemorative patch in the shape of the C-123 airplane that evacuated Dalat out of Vietnam in 1965, 50 years from now. Karl Steinkamp, Class of 1986 and Dalat Head of School, is shown here with the cool patches!

Helping to Complete the Great Commission in Asia!
Creating Memories, Supporting MK Education & Music and Athletics
As an alum, you know the depth and significance of Dalat's impact in your life. You can be part of Dalat's continuing service to missionary families in Asia and creating memories by participating in the Alumni Fund. Missionary kid education is one of the most important tools in support of those working to share the love of Christ to the entire world. Many of you — as former students whose parents ministered in Asia — know this firsthand.
