Frequently Asked Questions
How to donate?
3 ways - 1 time, monthly pledge, or sponsor a student.
Sponsor a student means a student will be assigned to the person and the person will be sponsoring the student's need (e.g. monthly allowance only, or school fees only or both).
For those who wants to sponsor a student or pledge monthly, they need to fill in the card. If they want to do one time donation, give them the donation envelope and make sure they fill in the details cos we need to email them the receipt.
What is the procedure?
For monthly and sponsor a student pledge, kindly fill all details in the card available at the ushers counter.
How much can a student get?
Case to case basis. The applicant will first be required to do their budgeting to ensure that they really need to financial assistance. In most cases, we require and expect the parents to support their child in their monthly expenses and lifefund will top up the amount that is short. We also encourage the students to work part time during the semester break or whenever reasonably possible to supplement their financial needs as long as it does not affect their studies and spiritual growth.
Why LifeFund is only for SIBLife or future SIBLife members?
Because LifeFund has just started and we are not in the capacity to help everyone yet. We also do periodic follow up on our beneficiaries to ensure that they pass their exams, develop good character, and are growing spiritually. The monitoring can only be done if we can see them regularly and when they attend cell regularly. So for now, this is part of the requirement based on the capacity we have.
