It is increasingly challenging for Dalat to attract and retain the best teachers, provide excellent academic and extracurricular programs, maintain our facilities, and support families who cannot afford international Christian education with scholarships.
Dalat’s school board is aware of the impact of rising costs on families, mission organizations, and companies who support the school through tuition and fees. As an independent, not-for-profit school, tuition and fundraising are Dalat’s only sources of funding. Charitable gifts help offset ever-increasing expenses needed to provide the excellence that is the hallmark of an education for life at Dalat
Those giving in the United States and in Canada get a tax benefit through Dalat’s fiscal sponsor, RCE International, a US not-for-profit 501(3)(c) organization. Be aware that RCE will impose a 5% administrative charge to Dalat on donations made through their organization, plus an additional 3% administrative fee for credit cards that reduces the gift amount.
While tax deductions are not generally available in Malaysia, arrangements may be made for giving through the Chinese Town Hall, George Town, Penang.

All members of our greater community are asked to participate each year, mission and business families alike, plus board members, alumni, parents of alumni, faculty and staff, grandparents, and friends of the school.
