Make an IMPACT today!

  • We believe that great ideas can come from anyone, anywhere, anytime!
  • We believe that education transforms lives and society!
  • We believe that together we can change the world!

And that is why our community created the UNIS Impact Fund which is designed to support both ‘Big Ideas’ through its annual GOALS and smaller ‘Project Ideas’ through its GRANTS programme.

But be it a ‘Big Idea’ or a smaller grant proposal, they will all have this in common: IMPACT on learning, IMPACT on our community and IMPACT on changing the world!

The UNIS Hanoi Impact Fund, new this year, supports projects and initiatives proposed by the School community to support the School’s Mission, Vision and Values and the UN’s SDGs. The Fund is designed to:

  • Engage and excite students – Student Impact!
  • Realise our ambitions as educators – Learning Impact!
  • Ensure opportunities for everyone – Community Impact!
  • Further our Mission, driven by our Values and Vision – Strategic Impact!
  • Deliver Agenda 2030 – World Impact!

Today we have opened the UNIS Impact Fund Ideas Application Form! And we want to hear from you! What is your idea?

It can be for either a ‘Big Idea’ which might be adopted by the School for our Impact Fund’raising campaign, or for a smaller grant award which can be put into action in the next weeks or months!

Your idea should create IMPACT, support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and support the School in one of the following areas:

  • Sustainability initiatives
  • Service Learning
  • Learning Excellence: Academics, Arts, Athletics 
  • Facilities improvements
  • Professional Development

Read all the details on the UNIS Impact Fund website including the detailed guidelines for submission of your ideas.

For a Big Idea GOAL proposal – Deadline is October 21 at 18:00. The UNIS Impact Fund Committee will review all the Big Ideas and after a student vote, one or two will be chosen to be our community goal for fundraising – a GOAL we can all achieve by working together!

Some of the early ideas that we have heard about for GOALS include: Solar panels for electricity, an animation studio, a languages academy and a plastic recycling plant.

For an application for a GRANT – you can apply anytime and the Impact Fund Grants Sub-Committee will review them as they come in. Thanks to the School Community Organisation who are partners for the UNIS Impact Fund, we have funds ready to award for the GRANTS Programme. Grant applications are designed for individuals or small groups to pilot, experiment or prototype ideas and will not exceed 2,500 USD.

We want our students to wake up every day knowing we can all make a difference, explore a passion for change and empower others to build their dreams. Together.

UNIS Hanoi seeks to unleash potential and empower creativity to change the world. The UNIS Hanoi Impact Fund is designed to support community inspired projects which will help do exactly that!

UNIS Hanoi is one of only two international UN schools in the world and is committed to the delivery of Agenda 2030 through both curriculum and service. As a not-for-profit organisation, institutional fundraising empowers UNIS Hanoi to extend the impact of its programmes beyond what is possible within a school budget.

By working together the UNIS Hanoi community can transform lives and society!
