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
Community Chest is the fund-raising and engagement arm of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). This year marks 35 years since we first set out to empower lives with care and unite the community in trust, to serve those in need. With the aim to enable every individual to live with dignity within a caring and inclusive society, we support about 80 social service organisations to meet underserved, critical social needs. As our fundraising and operating costs are covered mainly by Tote Board Group, 100% of your contributions goes towards empowering the lives of those we serve. 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. 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.
