Sponsorships & Fundraising

For St. Constantine International, financial independence is reliant on the philanthropic support of its community of past and current parents, Alumni and their families, our corporate friends and many others who appreciate the value of a St. Constantine International School education.

If you would like to be involved, here are some ways to support the school:

Donate

Make a donation in cash or kind and feature amongst promotion of all our new supporters for all to see, or remain anonymous, whichever you choose, knowing your gift directly impacts students through scholarships and facilities. Every gift, regardless of the amount, supports the important role the School plays in preparing students for their futures.

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­We encourage our community to support our sponsors, as they have supported our students.

Corporate sponsors

We would love to carry your name on our sports shirts, if you would sponsor them for us; our annual Yearbook requires sponsorship to cover printing and distribution costs; we need more books for our library and craft materials for our students; we need assistance in freighting our artworks to New Zealand for the exhibition … and more. Contact our Media and Marketing team leonietrubshoe@scis.sc.tz for a discussion on how we can work together, ensuring you get exposure and our students can benefit from your generosity.

Our International Foundation

The A+ Dreams Trust International Foundation’s objective is to anticipate and provide for the funding needs of St. Constantine International School over and above what is provided by school fees, including assisting poorer students we have confidence will go on to make their mark in Tanzania and beyond.

It is our hope that the support of the community – past and current parents, Alumni and their families, and many others who appreciate the value of a St. Constantine International School education will help us boost this fund so that in turn we can reach our objective.

There are two ways you can help:

Be a Foundation Member

Membership of the Foundation comprises of five levels

Uniform donation

As your child grows, or graduates, St. Constantine International would love you to please donate your good used uniforms to our shop for on-sale. Many parents are reluctant to pay full price for uniform if their child is going through a growth spurt, so a good second-hand uniform can be the answer. The monies raised from the sale of the second-hand uniforms will go towards the A+ Dreams Trust International Foundation for our less affluent but gifted students.

Bequests

A gift in your will – or a bequest – is a chance to create a long-lasting gift that will continue to support St. Constantine International School.

Every bequest regardless of its size, makes a real difference to a needy student and ensures that St. Constantine International can look forward to a future as bright and exciting as its past. 

A bequest to St. Constantine International School will cost you nothing today, but will have an enduring impact on future generations of St. Constantine International students.

Bequests can be tagged with a specific purpose or be unrestricted to be used at the discretion of the St. Constantine International School Board.

Bequests do not have to be cash. They can also be in the form of gifts such as property, art collections, jewellery, stocks or shares. By including a gift in your will, you have the option of leaving a specific amount, an item or a percentage of your estate to St. Constantine International School.

Recognising Bequest Donors – A notified bequest may also qualify you for membership of the St. Constantine International School Foundation. 

By notifying us of your intent we can express our gratitude and discuss appropriate options for recognition if you do not request anonymity. The more we know about your wishes, the better we are able to honour your intentions in full when we receive your bequest.

As a member of this elite group, you will be invited to special events at the School – a way for us to recognise your contribution, keep you up-to-date with what’s happening and enable you to be the first to know what plans we have to which you might want to direct your bequest or assistance.

Making a bequest is straightforward. If this is something that you would like to consider then please contact us for a confidential, obligation free discussion. We also recommend that you discuss the options with your solicitor.

Art and Craft Exhibition, Aotearoa, New Zealand

The first St. Constantine International School art exhibition and craft sale outside of Tanzania, will be held in the popular beachside city of Tauranga, New Zealand on August 28 – September 29, 2021, to raise funds for our scholarship programme. The exhibition is to feature in The Incubator gallery and studios, which presents a vibrant exhibition programme profiling emerging and established artists that are both internationally and locally recognised.

Our VIP invitation only Launch event will be held the Evening of Friday 27 August 2021 with media in attendance and Members of Parliament including the Deputy Minister of Education, Minister for Women and Minister of Internal Affairs, the Hon Jan Tinetti.

Our students will create and/or donate a range of artworks for shipment to New Zealand agreeing these will be sold at the exhibition to raise funds for the A+ Dreams Trust International Foundation.

On arrival, a range of works will be framed for best presentation, with the exhibition arranged in a series of stories highlighting both Tanzania and the students’ talents.

The children wish to help their parents promote their country, now that Tanzania is open for business.

A full exhibition programme will also be printed as the artworks are numbered and displayed, along with the medium and artist  and year level.
