This section is reserved for subsequent releases of the portal to allow alumni to give back to the school. This is a more serious undertaking requiring more deliberation and thought. However, for practical reasons, the first release of the portal has not prioritised this functionality.
A few points are briefly presented here with the aim of sharing some early thinking. These have to be shaped together with school authorities and the PTA.


Key areas of work in future releases:
- establish transparency (where are the funds going? what results can we see?)
- make it easy and cost-effective to give (exploit tax-rebate schemes; countries have different policies requiring establishing a "local chapter" of the ex-student association)
- establish practical criteria to assist in prioritising the different causes/projects (who decides?)
