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.

What we do

Match

donors’ interests with causes that are close to their hearts and offer ways for them to make a greater impact.

Collaborate

with charitable organisations to identify and develop meaningful programmes that impact diverse communities.

Manage

funds and grants with a high level of governance and accountability, so donors can be assured their gift creates lasting benefit for the community.

Get in touch with CFS today and let us help you do more with your giving.

For those with fatter wallets and who hope to create a greater impact with their gift, they can even consider setting up a charitable fund to give to causes close to their hearts. For example, the Community Foundation of Singapore (CFS), a non-profit group, helps donors find a more structured and sustainable way of giving by providing advice and managing their charitable fund. To set up a named charitable fund in the CFS, where the donor decides on the fund’s name and the causes to give to, donors must pledge at least $200,000.

CoLABS workshop: A day in their shoes

“Poor people are just lazy.”
