Helping to Complete the Great Commission in Asia
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.
By providing students with an excellent education and a family-style boarding community, Dalat gives parents the flexibility to minister anywhere God calls them in the region, knowing that their children are being well-cared for.
This year's Alumni Fund is also about creating memories. Dalat Alumni say that their memories of Dalat are some of their most precious possessions. Giving to the Alumni Fund will also provide resources for sports teams and musical groups to travel to regional tournaments and competitions; the things memories are made of.
