I am raising S$40,000 for 40 charities by the time I turn 40 in 2017. Simply put, 40k for 40 by 40! I have already donated S$4,000 of my own funds to these charities and I hope you will participate in this effort. This charity is one of the 40 beneficiaries. Thank you for helping to make this difference.
The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF) is managed by The RICE Company Limited (TRCL), a non-profit organisation that harvests the potential of the arts and culture for the development of human lives and connecting communities locally and around the world.
Initiated in 2004 and adopted by The Business Times in 2005, BT BAF originated from a conviction that no child with strong interest and potential in the arts should be denied the opportunity to develop his or her talents due to a lack of financial resources. Since 2005, BT BAF has reached out to more than 15,000 children between the ages of 6 and 19 years through a variety of arts education programmes.
Beneficiaries are trained primarily at The Little Arts Academy (LAA) and 10 Square @ Orchard Central. The multidisciplinary curriculum covers Music, Dance, Theatre and Visual Arts and a key feature of the programming is the opportunity for beneficiaries to stage public performances.
