Ways to give

NOAM has set up a special infrastructure fund to finance development and new capital investments. These funds will not be used for the day-to-day operation of the school. Payments into this fund will be tax deductible in the Canton of Zurich and probably in other cantons.

There are many ways to help us:

  • You can be a sponsor of a specific project – we list our current key projects below – or simply support our investment programmes as they develop.
  • You can make a single donation or commit to making an annual contribution over a number of years.
  • You can dedicate a gift in memory of a loved one (we are ready to discuss naming rights for a project or school room for larger donations).
  • You can sponsor-in-kind by providing services or goods needed by NOAM.
  • You can take ads in NOAM publications or be a sponsor of our blogs or this website.
  • You can attend, support, and bring friends to our special fundraising events.
  • You can make interest free loans to the fund.
  • You can leave a gift or money, shares or other assets to the fund in your will.
  • You can encourage family foundations and trusts, in Switzerland or abroad, to make grants in favour of NOAM.

Our current investment programme includes:

  • Re-equipment of the school’s IT infrastructure, improved wireless connections, new routers and high speed broadband access and new software as required.
  • Purchasing of new computers and tablets for teachers and students for use in school, plus servers and other IT equipment. (Brochure IT Projekt)
  • Purchasing of new presentation equipment for use in classrooms such as beamers, whiteboards and visualisers.
  • Re-equipping and enlargement of our staff room.
  • Special English and French teacher training programmes.
  • Development of our website from a communication medium into a focused and dedicated teaching tool for students.
  • Creation of a social media capability for the school.
We need your help; every gift is appreciated, large or small. Our development fundraising is run exclusively by volunteers, so every Swiss franc, dollar, euro, shekel or pound will be used for the investments. Total donations above CHF 100,000, will be recognised in our special roll of honour (although we will respect all requests for anonymity).
