Q: Where does the money go in ASF?
A: The School receives income from tuition and registration, bus service fees, summer camp fees and donations, among other sources. With the exception of donations, all of these sources of income go into the General Fund, which supports schoolwide operations such as compensation and fringe benefits, school materials, school transportation and many other costs.
Q: Why give?
A: We know how important The American School Foundation is to you and your children. You, as an alumnus or alumna, or your children as students are spending some of their most formative years here. They will meet some of their closest friends, or maybe even their spouse or partner, right here! Your children are expanding their minds and broadening their horizons here, acquiring critical thinking, getting to know people from all over the world and learning how to engage with people whose ideas were are different from their own. Here your children are learning how to craft an argument, how to dig deeper, how to push themselves, and how to constantly improve.
ASF is a special place and, with your help, we can continue to give that experience to the students of the present and the future. Your gift to the School will help to attract and keep world-class faculty and exceptional students, offer a rigorous and innovative curriculum, and promote an intellectual environment that encourages students to love learning, live purposefully and to become responsible, contributing citizens of the world.
