Our Campaign Story

Your GIFT creates REAL impact!

Meet Sally (not her real name), a 10-year-old student enrolled in Canossaville Student Care.

Sally's father sadly passed on when she was 10 months old and her mother suffers from clinical depression, rendering her unable to care for Sally. As such she has been living with her grandparents and four cousins in a 2-room flat.

Sally struggles significantly in school and does not have anyone at home to help her with homework and revision. Once the teachers learnt about her situation, they immediately recommended her to attend our Canossaville Student Care, which can provide her with much-needed homework support and structure beyond school hours.

Sally's aging grandfather is the sole breadwinner and struggles financially to support a large family of 7. Thankfully, our Canossaville Education Fund helps to greatly subsidise her Student Care fees to help ease the burden on the family while still ensuring that Sally receives the help she needs.

Your donations will help provide access for Sally and others like her to programmes like Canossaville Student Care so that they can be empowered to realise their fullest potential.

This is an impact story as part of Canossaville's 80th Anniversary campaign, The Never-Ending Gift. Donations to this campaign will also qualify for a dollar-for-dollar matching from the Singapore Government and Toteboard.

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!
