Dalat's Annual Fund is the phenomenon that ignites our school each October. Families, alumni, staff, students, and friends are encouraged to generously help fund the extra resources and tools to fuel the extraordinary teaching and learning that happens at Dalat every day. When everyone helps, the Annual Fund can pave the way for great things!
“But I give best when I give from that deeper place; when I give simply, freely and generously, and sometimes for no particular reason. I give best when I give from my heart.”
All projects are fully funded!
Special thanks to the 121 families and friends of Dalat.

Dalat Annual Fund
October 17 - November 30
Generosity is modeled in many ways by parents and teachers. It comes to life when we share with each other, help out those who need support, and give freely of our time and resources to make the world better. Giving generously to our 2022 Annual Fund is another way we can model “Education for Life”

Annual Fund FAQ
The Annual Fund is more than just a fundraiser; it is a community-wide event. By working together, we can make Dalat a better place for our students.
Tuition covers the day-to-day needs of running the school. The Annual Fund allows Dalat to enhance education with lots of great resources!
Your gifts provided for hundreds of projects, including the Recycling Program, Gym Fitness Equipment, iPads for ES, Laptops for MS, Music Instruments and Choir Risers, Dorm Ovens, and much more!
The Annual Fund provides additional resources for students above what tuition covers. This is a way we will keep our promises to our children. If you support the mission of Dalat International School, your giving is an investment in our children to fulfill that goal of providing an education for life and to continue making it better.
Building fees are used for large projects in the development of the school and its facilities and are being used for the campus development taking place on campus now.
Annual Fund is a community wide event for Dalat families, students, staff, and school board members. Everyone is encouraged to get involved. Alumni and former staff have even participated! Donations, large and small, are welcome. You can also encourage others to give, and partner with us in prayer.
The Annual Fund will kick off on Monday, 17 October and will end on Sunday, 20 November. Gifts will be accepted during that time by cash, check, credit card, or by bank transfer. Drop your gift off at the school office during regular business hours, mail in the attached response form, or email the Development Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are asking everyone to give what they are able and with a joyful heart. The important thing is that everyone participates.
Unfortunately, not in Malaysia, as Dalat is not a non-profit organization. US-based donors can donate through RCE to ensure their gift is tax deductible.
Due to COVID-19, there will not be any in-person events for Annual Fund. Please check your email, Dalat News, and the Annual Fund website for information about other ways to get involved.
If I want to know more about specific school needs, who can I contact? Please direct questions to Catherine Foster, Director of Development, via email at email@example.com.
2022 Annual Fund Pledge
Hi, my name is Catherine Foster, and I’m honored to be the Director of Development here at Dalat. As a Dalat graduate (Class of 2009), the community and mission of Dalat is very near and dear to my heart. While I was a student, I received a world-class education from incredible teachers and staff, and have a lot of great memories from my time here.
We want to continue the mission of Dalat by providing more tools and resources to our staff and students, to make this a fun and engaging place to learn. Every year, our Annual Fund provides opportunities for our community to show support for projects that will enhance learning here at Dalat.
This year, we want to raise RM 175,000 to support projects like improvements to our High School Science Lab, renovations to the Student Center, supplies for our student Creative Zones, additional health and medical equipment, and more. All of these funding priorities provide more opportunities for our community to Reconnect and grow as the Dalat family.
By donating to the Annual Fund, you are making a direct impact on our entire school community and helping Dalat continue to be a fun and engaging place to learn. Please join us to support these projects and resources for our community.
