CDNIS is a non-profit, private-independent school that receives no funding from any government, corporations or other organizations. The philanthropic generosity of the community has allowed CDNIS to invest in excellence and provide a plethora of projects that give our students the best educational experience possible. This generosity, both in time and money, from volunteers such as our Members, Governors, Committee Members, parents and teachers has helped to shape CDNIS into the school it is today.
Another facet of the dedication inherent in our community is exemplified through the generous donations it has provided both for Capital programmes, such as the Leo Lee Arts Centre or the Green Roof, and our Annual Giving programmes, such as the Alan Dick Fund, Artists-in-Residence Fund and, most recently, our Annual Giving Campaign. Gifts to CDNIS can receive a Hong Kong tax receipt. Donors with US taxable income can also make gifts through a US registered charity to receive a US tax receipt. The School cannot accept gifts from parents of children who are applying for admissions, unless they are already parents or alumni. Such generosity of spirit, time and money has ultimately enabled us to build upon the hopes and aspirations that we continue to have for the education of our children at CDNIS.
The Development Committee of the Board of Governors facilitates all major fundraising efforts for the school. The main area supported by philanthropy is the Annual Giving Campaign.
