Give your love to those in need!
Let's move to meet the target of usd 500 by Feb 14,2017.
As homes are filled with the cheer and warmth of family and friends during the Lunar New Year, we seek your help to bring a Fu Dai to the homes of the less fortunate and bring them the festive joy and hope to our beneficiaries!
For a $50* donation, Community Chest will deliver a Fu Dai of fully sponsored items and necessities to the seniors, while a $150* donation will enable us to deliver a Fu Dai to families in need.
A Fu Dai can bring a smile to lonely seniors who live alone, and encourage families going through challenging times.
We are a fund-raising and engagement arm of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). As such, our role and purpose are aligned with NCSS to ensure that every person has the opportunity to live a life of dignity to his or her fullest potential within our society. We raise funds to support social service organisations so that they can do what they are best at - caring for and serving the less advantaged.
Community Chest was established in 1983 with a simple yet vital mission - to raise funds for the many social service organisations of the nation. It is about raising funds from the community for the community in need.
Social service organisations supported by Community Chest are then able to do what they are best at - providing critical social service programmes to help children with special needs, youths-at-risk, adults with disabilities, frail and lonely elderly, families facing difficulties and persons with mental health issues.
Over the years, Community Chest has built an enduring trust and partnership with many organisations, foundations and individuals and raised millions of much-needed dollars that enabled us to care for our beneficiaries.
At the heart of it all is our Patron-in-Chief, President Tony Tan Keng Yam, who will be lending his support to our fund-raising social service organisations.
