Our Campaign Story

ends 30 Sep 2021, 11:59 PM

This is part of Canossaville's The Never-Ending Gift Campaign which qualifies for a dollar for dollar matching by the Singapore Government and Toteboard.

Eighty years is a long time, but Canossaville Children and Community Services has stood the test of time as one of the oldest charities in Singapore.

Formerly a home for children, the charity has since started offering pre-school programmes and a student care catering to both mainstream children as well as children with hearing loss. The in-house Canossian Child Development Unit provides therapy support in areas such as speech and occupational therapy.

The charity is consistently expanding and supporting children and their families to help them reach their fullest potential. All these can only be made possible with kind support from donors like yourself.

Join me in doing my small part as a GIFT-er to raise funds to support their programmes and services for children from all race and faiths as part of Canossaville's 80th Anniversary!

I hope to raise as much as possible to support the cause. Your small donation can make a world of difference to the children at Canossaville. Together we will raise a significant amount of donations.

100% of funds are channelled directly to Canossaville.

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!
