Raffles Parents' Association (RPA) is calling on all parents of Rafflesians, past and present, to support RI's green initiative - to plant 1823 Trees! - as part of the RI's countdown to the bicentennial celebrations in 2023!
This campaign represents RI's efforts to do better for sustainability and to safeguard Singapore's environment, and RPA is fully supportive of this!
Parents, show your support for this worthy cause by donating now. All proceeds will go towards RI's 1823 Trees Fund.
*Please note that by contributing to this campaign, you are consenting to allow Garden City Fund to share your name and donation details with RPA and RI.
In conjunction with the countdown to Raffles Institution's Bicentennial celebrations in 2023, RI is committed to planting 1,823 trees (representing the year of their founding) as part of the National Parks Board's OneMillionTrees movement.
Minister for Sustainability & Environment Grace Fu kickstarted the tree planting campaign on 20 Aug 2021 by planting a Gelam tree. The Gelam tree is significant to Raffles' founding of Singapore as it was observed to be growing at the Orang Laut village by the sea.
Since 2011, RI has been working to make the school more sustainable through a four-pronged approach: a green campus, instilling a green culture among students, and integrating sustainability in the school curriculum and community. This tree planting campaign represents RI's efforts to do better for sustainability and our environment.
RI hopes to start planting these trees in 2022, subject to prevailing Covid-19 measures. All donations will go towards the planting of trees. Every $300 contributed will help RI plant one more tree towards this cause. RI is excited to do their part in greening Singapore and RI hopes that you can help them meet the target!
Note: All donations with a unique FIN/NRIC are tax-deductible.
Upon donating to this campaign, you are consenting for GCF to share your donation details with RI upon request. If you prefer to donate anonymously, please email [email protected] with your donation details.
