Do more with your giving
At the Community Foundation of Singapore, the simple act of giving goes a long way. We believe in philanthropy that extends beyond the singular benefits of traditional charity. Here, donors have every opportunity to make their mark on the bigger picture.
Transforming giving into positive impact is at the heart of what we do. As a champion of bettering our communities, we persist in dealing with what needs to be done. While focusing on identified issues, we continue to spot social gaps that need support.
As we continue to seek ways to make a difference for our donors and communities, one thing remains constant: our commitment to the process, from giving to impact.
