Our Campaign Story

ends 09 Dec 2022, 11:59 PM

Sandra and Francis (not their real names) are siblings who attend Canossaville Student Care (CSC). They love the time spent there and have benefitted academically. CSC provides children who may come from vulnerable or challenging family backgrounds, a safe haven to learn alongside their peers after school.

Sandra and Francis' family faced financial difficulties, and have accumulated more than $3,000 arrears on their student care fees. Canossaville's social workers learnt about the family's challenges and the rocky relationship between the parents, and they recommended for the children to continue attending CSC for their overall well-being.

Canossaville arranged for the family to receive fees support and found sponsors to clear their arrears. Our social workers continue to work with the family to stabilise the parents' relationship and assist them in overcoming their difficulties. Through a holistic approach, we hope to empower their parents and eventually create a conducive environment for their children.

Your donations can provide children like Sandra and Francis equal access to after-school support so that they can thrive. Thank you for your support this Season of Giving!

About Campaign

Every year, we all look forward to a special occasion. For some it could be a birthday, for others, a festive season such as Christmas. While we all celebrate these special occasions in our own ways, many also choose to give and share with others who need a little bit more help.

At Canossaville Children and Community Services, our programmes and services are open to our children and their families all year round, with priority given to those from disadvantaged backgrounds. Education is at the core of what we do and our Canossian Circle of Care provides the supporting structure to children through a preschool, after-school care as well as a child development unit.

This can only be made possible with the support of donors like yourself. We advocate for sustainable giving all year round to support all our programmes and services. In reality, donors tend to only donate at the end of the year during the season of giving.

Thank you for remembering us during this season of giving. Your special thoughts warm the hearts of our children and their families under our care.

Thanks to the support of Tote Board's enhanced fund-raising programme, all donations to the Season of Giving campaign shall be eligible for 40% matching by the Singapore Government and Tote Board up to cap of $250,000 per charity. Every dollar counts towards our work!
