Unrestricted gifts provide Singapore American School with funds that are not limited to a specific program or project. Your donation gives SAS’s leadership team the ability to advance the school’s top priorities and respond to needs as they arise. Unrestricted gifts are of critical importance because they allow the school to provide funding to offer transformative opportunities to students, overcome unexpected challenges, take advantage of unique opportunities, and enhance the SAS experience.
At Singapore American School, our teachers are our greatest resource. We believe in lifelong learning, and your support will enable us to extend the transformational benefits of education to our staff. With the support of the donor community, we will be able to expand the educational opportunities (master’s and doctorate degree programs, conferences, workshops, courses, and coaching) available for our faculty and staff to equip them to serve students most effectively.
Students learn best when they feel known, cared for, and connected to their school. Social-emotional learning provides many benefits, including increased academic performance, and reduced stress and negative behaviors. At SAS, social-emotional learning is embedded within services and programs schoolwide to foster students relationships with their teachers and each other. Your gift to the SAS Foundation will support effective and innovative ideas in our social-emotional wellness and advisory programs to create environments and practices that prioritize belonging, well-being, and inclusiveness.
Singapore American School provides targeted, individualized support so that all of our students can learn at high levels. This level of support comes at a cost, and your gift will allow us to provide the resources necessary to continue to serve students with a wide variety of abilities at Singapore American School.
For over 45 years, Interim Semester has been a signature and life-changing experience for SAS’s high school students. While providing the necessary supervision and support to ensure a safe, rewarding, and extraordinary experience, SAS strives to keep costs to a minimum. However, more SAS families than ever before pay tuition and fees without support from their employers. We invite you to support students who demonstrate financial need, so they too can share in the incredible opportunity for learning and growth that Interim Semester represents.
At Singapore American School, we value athletics for the lessons they teach about leadership, teamwork, victory and defeat, and the sheer joy of competition. With a wide variety of sports and playing levels, there’s a home for every athlete on our campus. Your support will enable us to upgrade our training facilities, sponsor tournament participation, and provide certification courses for our coaches.

Why does SAS need to raise money?
I am not wealthy, and can only give S$25 or S$50. How would that make a difference?
I am philanthropic, but more inclined to support other causes than our school. Why should I give to SAS?
My company does not pay our tuition, we do. Why should I consider giving SAS even more money?
What is the Eagle Society? How is a gift to the SAS Foundation the same or different than joining the Eagle Society?
