Prudential Singapore for The Invictus Fund. #DOGood
(For Prudential employees and Financial Consultants, please create a giving.sg account using your Prudential/Pruadviser email address and full name for dollar-for-dollar matching of your contributions)
A little contribution goes a long way. All adult Singaporeans will be receiving S$600 solidarity payment this week. Pay it forward and help those who need it more to tide through this difficult time by donating any amount. Prudential will match dollar-for-dollar the first S$50,000 donated by our employees and Financial Consultants.
The funds raised will go to The Invictus Fund, facilitated by the National Council of Social Service. Donations will support Social Service Agencies that deliver critical services to vulnerable groups in our community.
Caring for the vulnerable should never cease, especially in uncertain times. Singapore has united to care for the vulnerable individuals and families affected by COVID-19. Just as generous donations to The Courage Fund has allowed us to provide relief to frontline workers and families affected by COVID-19, our social service agencies (SSAs) also need support to enable them to continue to provide critical social services to vulnerable individuals, families and communities, in the face of this challenge.
To do this, the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) has set up The Invictus Fund, which will channel public donations to SSAs that deliver critical services to vulnerable groups in our community.
Where will your donations go?
Donations will go towards enabling our SSAs to continue to provide critical social services. With your support, they can maintain operations, adopt technology and other business continuity initiatives to continue serving their users, and emerge stronger through this period.
In addition to financial support, NCSS is also working closely the SSAs to help them with business continuity and integration of technology into their operations and service delivery, to ensure access to critical social services continue to be available, especially to those who need it.
More details on The Invictus Fund will be made available soon. For further queries, please contact us at [email protected].
