In their words
Be it a random act of kindness, a family member’s compassion or a long tradition of philanthropy, our donors have found the reason behind why they give. These are their stories.
Portraits of our donors

Keith Chua, Mrs Lee Choon Guan Fund
Keith, who is the executive chairman of ABR Holdings, said, “Through the stories my mother told me, I knew about some of her philanthropic work, but not to what extent she did it. It was only until I started my first steps into philanthropy that I came to know what she did.”
