About Campaignends 09 Aug 2020, 11:59 PM
The Courage Fund was first established in 2003 when Singapore was hit by the SARS outbreak. Fellow Singaporeans donated generously to the Fund to support those who were affected by the outbreak. In this same spirit of uniting the community to support one another through difficult times, Community Chest is helping to channel donations to The Courage Fund to enable those in need to tide through the current COVID-19 situation.
Where Will Your Donations Go?
All donations to The Courage Fund will go towards supporting vulnerable individuals and families. These donations will help to provide relief to those who are affected by the COVID-19 situation.
Other Forms of Support to Social Service Agencies
In tandem with this fundraising effort, the National Council of Social Service (NCSS) would also be facilitating in-kind donations of essential supplies, such as masks, sanitisers, thermometers, through a distribution framework to the social service agencies.
Let us stay united in the face of this challenge and we will emerge stronger, together.

About the Charity
Community Chest is the fund-raising and engagement arm of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). 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.
