About the Eagle Society
The purpose of the Eagle Society is to strengthen the relationship between SAS and its donors, reaffirming the value of your annual support for the school. Eagle Society donors are leaders in supporting the school annually, and this support provides the school's critical margin of excellence. Your annual gift, when combined with those of other members from across the school and around the world, strengthens the school community and helps SAS achieve its vision to be a world leader in education, creating exceptional thinkers, prepared for the future.
*Matching gift claims count toward membership, regardless of when actual corporate funds are received. Claims must be received in the same fiscal year as the originating gift to count toward membership.
**Singapore American School’s fiscal year runs from July 1 – June 30.
The advancement office mails acknowledgements to every donor. For donations to the US Foundation, your tax receipt will come directly from International School Services, an external agency in Princeton, New Jersey. For donations to the Singapore Foundation, your acknowledgement letter will serve as the receipt of your gift.
Beside our contributions as volunteers, our family also donates to the Annual Fund. This is because the foundation supports all of the enriching student programs and experiences that help make an SAS education one that has a transformational impact on the childrens' lives and on the quality of learning at SAS. Simply put, we support SAS because it is a great school and our children are very fortunate to be part of this wonderful community.
