Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Aug 2019, 11:59 PM

5 of us came together for a common goal of raising fund for St. John's Home for the Elderly Persons new 5-storey Home that is slated for completion in Dec 2020.
The new Home project needs a total $19.3 million to complete and they are short of another $5 million to complete it.

As part of the Bicentennial Celebrations, the Singapore Government will also grant dollar for dollar matching for donations raised by IPCs (from 1 Apr 2019 to 31 Mar 2020, up to a maximum of $400,000 for each IPC).

This means that every dollar you donate would give them an additional 1-fold of funding!

We believe in "Giving What You Want", as such, taking the initiative to run this fund raising effort to help make this new Home for SJH a dream come true.

Please join us to complete this new Home for these elderly residents!

About The Charity

Established in December 1958, St. John's Home for Elderly Persons is a Sheltered Home for elderly persons who are ambulant and aged above 60.

Our Mission is to provide shelter and care to meet the physical and spiritual needs of elderly persons who have no home and no children or close relatives with adequate resources to care for them.

The Home is open to all regardless of race or creed.

We are not a government-subvented Home and depend largely on the public's generosity to enable us to continue our work as a Registered Charity.

Since the Home started operations in December 1958, we have been located at our present site at 69 Wan Tho Avenue. In 2015, the Government granted us a fresh 30-year lease on a reduced land area of 3,300sqm. Concurrently, we also entered into a three-plus-three year tenancy agreement on the remaining 8,924sqm land area that we are currently occupying.

We are presently constructing a new five-storey building on the 30-year lease land, to maximise on the plot ratio of 1.4 prescribed for the land. We began construction in November 2018 and when we move into the new building, we shall increase our licensed capacity to 150.

We invite you to join us in this exciting journey of building a new Home for the Elderly, so that our Residents will not be displaced.

The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014, and the Charity Transparency Award (2018).
