“My New Year’s Resolution is…

to make an Impact for a better world…”

As we start a new year, it would be wonderful to reward our amazing students and make their wishes for the world come true. They have told us what they want – Solar Power and a Botanical Garden – Let’s make it happen together!

Please consider making your gift to the UNIS Impact Fund as part of your new year’s resolutions and show the students we care!
78% of the votes for the Impact Fund projects were from our students who are really excited about these projects – Lets have at least that number of families supporting their projects!
We even have Diploma students engaging with project teams and ideas for Extended Essays with the projects! But we can only make an impact on learning with your help!
EVERY GIFT COUNTS and add up to create big funds! And we may be able to access external funding if we demonstrate significant solidarity as a community with high participation from our community.
Also, if you have time and would like to join one of the project task forces, email impact@unishanoi.org and we will welcome you as they develop this month with teams of students, faculty, staff and parents. Watch this space for updates on our Solar Power project and the plans for our UNIS Hanoi Botanical Garden!
A big THANK YOU to our early givers who have already pledged their support in the first month of our campaign!

TOTAL TODAY: $32,072 USD

 

Make an Impact – make a gift!

We want our students to wake up every day knowing we can change the world! Together.

The UNIS Impact Fund is designed to support community inspired projects which will help our students do exactly that!
We have two goals this year, created by and voted for by our students and UNIS community with more than 1200 votes!

  1. UNIS Botanical Garden – Greening our campus with a living, learning experience!
  2. UNIS Solar Power – Prototyping renewable energy on campus!

These Big Ideas came from students, teachers and parents. They will become reality with your help! Find out more on the UNIS Impact Fund Big Ideas website pages.

We plan to raise $100,000 USD through community fundraising and it started this week. If you prefer, you can make a cash gift directly to the UNIS Impact Fund with one of our easy gift options. Find out more about our giving options.

Or maybe you prefer to plan a fundraiser with your friends and family? Contact impact@unishanoi.org if you would like to organise a fundraising event for the UNIS Impact Fund – we will be happy to help you!

Every Gift Counts… and counts up!

The UNIS Impact Fund is designed to make Big Ideas happen by everyone joining in together! Of the 1200 votes cast by our community, 78% were from students, passionate about making these projects a reality with your help.
Let’s work together to show our students that we believe in their ideas and prove together the power of community commitment to these goals!

100% of your gift – whether it is 100,000 VND or 100M VND – will go directly to these student projects to benefit our community.

THANK YOU!

So You Want To Change The World?

The UNIS Impact Fund is designed to you help you do exactly that!

New this year, the UNIS Impact Fund will support both Big Idea GOALS and smaller Project Funding GRANTS to ensure that our students wake up every morning knowing they can make a difference!

And at the moment, we want you to hear all your Big Idea GOALS with the October 21 deadline fast approaching!

This month the Impact Fund Committee will review all your Big Ideas and decide which ones go forward into the ‘feasibility phase’ this month. This gives the Committee time to work out with the School Admin which projects we might actually be able to implement – is it even possible?

Then the shortlist will go to a student vote and the Impact Fund Committee will decide which of the great ideas that we have received will get funding for up to $100,000 USD from our Community Impact Fund’raising Campaign.

You can read all the details on the UNIS Hanoi website and fill out the simple form to get the ideas rolling.

SHARE YOUR IDEAS TODAY!

What are you doing this weekend?

Would you like to represent the community on the UNIS Impact Fund Committee?

If the answer is Yes to any of those questions, all you have to do this weekend is let us know that you would like to get involved with the new UNIS Impact Fund Committee by filling in this SHORT FORM.

What is the UNIS Impact Fund?

The UNIS Impact Fund is both a community fundraising campaign and a project fund to support learning. In short, it is designed to help students change the world!

You will be hearing a lot more about it this year…

Approved projects will create Impact in the following areas:

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

And the decision makers for which project gets funding?

It could be you!
As part of a cross-community team – the UNIS Impact Fund Committee – with students, parents, faculty and staff, alumni, admin and Board members. You could be part of the team that selects the shortlist for student vote and then make the final decision!

The Fund supports both ambitious community projects – the Big Ideas – chosen at the start of each year and adopted as the focus for annual community fundraising (GOALS); and smaller individual projects supporting risk-taking, pilot programmes and advocacy by small groups or individuals (GRANTS).By working together the UNIS Hanoi community can transform lives and society!

Find out more on the UNIS Impact Fund website and fill in the Impact Fund Committee FORM.

And if you have questions? Our Director of Advancement, Emma Silva is happy to help: doa@unishanoi.org

Join the Impact Fund Committee and have a deciding voice in how the new UNIS Impact Fund is spent to support your child/ren and our UNIS Hanoi Vision for a better world!

A plastics recycling plant on campus? An artist in residence creating sculptures from our waste? Solar panels powering the campus?

These are just a few of the ideas from students, faculty and parents and we haven’t even got started yet! Exciting stuff!

This year our community will have the opportunity to help make an impact both on student learning at UNIS Hanoi and to help change the world!

The UNIS Impact Fund is a new programme which will support both your child’s learning and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals as we work together to embrace a future with hope.

This new project fund will be coordinated by a cross-community committee made up of students, parents, teachers, faculty, staff, administrators and alumni. And we would like to hear from you if you are interested in being involved.

Please visit the UNIS Impact Fund Committee information on the website and apply today through this Application Form. (Deadline for applications is Wednesday September 10.)

And if being part of a committee is not your thing… Everyone will have the opportunity to submit ideas for projects and of course help us raise the funds for this transformational philanthropy campaign. Watch out for updates in the Tin Tuc in the coming weeks.

But to get started, we need our Impact Fund Committee of volunteers. Is it for you? Check out the website for the committee description, terms of reference and schedule of meetings.

And to get you in the mood for transformation… Watch the UNIS Impact Fund Anthem by UNIS Hanoi Alumnae (Class of 2019) Irma Hogberg.
