Our Campaign Storyends 30 Aug 2020, 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 Dec 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. Concurrently, we also entered into a three-plus-three year tenancy agreement on the land that we are currently occupying.
We are now building a new five-storey building on the 30-year lease land to maximise on the plot ratio of 1.4 prescribed for the land. When we move into the new building, we shall increase our licensed capacity to 150. Construction began in Nov 2018, with target completion in Mar 2021.
We appeal for your support of building a new Home, so our elderly residents will not be displaced. Please donate generously. Thank you.
The Home is a recipient of the President's Award for Philanthropy 2014, the Charity Transparency Award 2019, 2018, Community in Bloom Award 2018, 2016, 2014.
