Is it permissible for a Muslim school to take donations from non-believers?

It is permissible for a Muslim school to accept donations from non-believers subject to the condition that such donations are not in any manner harmful to the Muslims or the school. If for example there is apprehension that the donors will try to interfere with the management of the school, then such donations should not be accepted.
