Joseph Schooling made waves throughout the world when he won Singapore's first ever Olympic Gold medal at the Rio 2016 Games. With his parents, coaches and many others believing in and supporting him all the way, Joseph Schooling persevered though training schedules and overcame many challenges in his journey to becoming a champion. He has inspired many Singaporeans to chase their dreams.
This is why Joseph Schooling is partnering Community Chest for the "Champion For A Good Cause" community project - to champion the spirit of giving in our community and empower the less fortunate to achieve their dreams.
"To me, it means using my time and talent to empower the disadvantaged. I believe that every one of us can do our part to build a caring and inclusive Singapore for all," said Joseph Schooling on what it meant to be a Champion for a good cause.
You can be a part of this inspirational project to show your support to the less fortunate and make a difference in their lives. Donate today.

About the Charity
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, we have built an enduring trust and partnership with many organisations, foundations and individuals, enabling and empowering the social service users under our care to lead fulfilling lives. At the heart of it all is our Patron-in-Chief, President Halimah Yacob, who will be lending her support to our social service organisations.
