What is Sayang Sayang Fund?

Managing the impact of COVID-19 with the power of giving

The Sayang Sayang Fund is established as an agile community response fund. 

Backed by CFS’s deep understanding of community needs and strong relationships with charities and government agencies, we quickly formed strategic partnerships to deliver financial support to the affected communities in the fastest and most effective way during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Thank you businesstimessg and Professor Tang Hang Thank you businesstimessg and Professor Tang Hang Wu for the insightful piece about how Donor Advised Funds (DAF) can make a meaningful impact in Asia.

This is a powerful giving tool that business magnates like Elon Musk, Jack Ma, Mark Zuckerberg use in terms of their charitable giving. They enjoy some say in the causes they wish to support, and also receive advice from their ‘sponsoring organisation’ about causes on the ground that are underfunded.
