1. Who can make a gift to UNIS Hanoi?
Everyone can give! Fundraising at UNIS Hanoi is about what we can achieve when we all work together as a community.
Our primary goal is to mobilize our own direct UNIS Hanoi community: students, parents, faculty, alumni and corporate and community partners.
However, we also accept gifts from those outside of our School community who are inspired by the Mission and Vision of our School and who want to contribute as a Friend of the School.
We celebrate all gifts as philanthropic acts of generosity.
2. Can my gift be anonymous?
We respect any donor’s request for anonymity. In this case, the gift will still be recorded internally for the purposes of institutional fiscal transparency, but will be attributed in reports as “Anonymous”. In all cases, the option for the gift to be anonymous will be made clear at the time of giving.
3. Is there a tax advantage available from my donation to UNIS Hanoi?
There is no tax advantage associated with donations in Vietnam. UNIS Hanoi has been able to partner with Give2Asia to provide tax receipts for US taxpayers to take advantage of tax benefits in their home country. The School continues to explore ways to make tax efficient giving possible in the future.
