All gifts are fully redeemed as at 22 September 2021, 10pm thank you for your support!

This is a GIFT initiative under Canossaville's The Never-Ending Gift campaign. All donations to the campaign will qualify for dollar matching by the Singapore Government and Tote Board.

Meet Patricia, a supporter of Canossaville. She is also the talented owner of Deckle Edges Makes, an online website retailing handmade items such as notebooks, totebags and pouches. She mostly enjoys crafting with paper, fabric, haberdashery and needlework. She likes her creations to be expressive, tactile and vivid.

Patricia is joining us as a GIFT-er for Canossaville's 80th Anniversary. She hopes to appeal to donors like yourself to contribute to Canossaville to benefit the children and their families under our care.

To thank donors, the first 40 donors who donate $80 or more to this campaign, shall receive one (1) handmade notebook by Patricia. To be eligible, please include your Singapore Residential Address upon donation.

The notebooks will be mailed out by Canossaville within the first 2 weeks of October 2021. The notebooks are of varied designs and are mailed out randomly on a first come, first served basis.

Thank you!

About Campaign

All donations to the Never-Ending Gift Campaign are matched dollar for dollar by the Singapore Government and Tote Board.

This year, we celebrate the 80th Anniversary of Canossaville and we are grateful for the unwavering support and everlasting faith of our partners and friends. With the dollar match, your donation will go twice as far with double the impact!

Canossaville started as Canossa Orphanage on 15 August 1941, together with Canossa Convent Primary School at Sallim Road in response to the increasingly urgent need to serve the poor in the Geylang-Aljunied area.

Over the years, the Canossian Sisters and the children endured a war, relocation to Malaysia, expansion, and finally as Canossaville Children and Community Services today. Mother Foundress, St Magdalene, always said that we must change with the sign of the times. As such, Canossaville will continue to grow and strengthen our support for the children, families, and the communities.

The proceeds from this campaign would ensure that we continue to provide our essential programmes and services to our children and families from all race and faiths, persist in providing early intervention support for our children with hearing loss, and grow and expand our assistance to those in need.

Please also share this campaign with your families and friends and encourage them to Be a Never-Ending Gift to our children.

Thank you, and may God bless you!
