About Campaign

Social interaction is critical, especially in one's later years, as it generates a sense of belonging and well-being. The Outing for Seniors Community Impact Fund was started in 2009 to enable seniors with medical conditions or mobility challenges to enjoy being out and hopefully reduce their sense of social isolation.

Managed by CFS, the fund enables charitable organisations to bring frail seniors; many wheelchair bound; on regular, organised excursions to attractions such as museums, Gardens by the Bay, the Singapore Flyer, River Safari or even supermarkets. The fund covers admission costs as well as transportation and refreshments and all residential care institutions are eligible to apply for it.

To date, the fund has brought over 15,000 seniors on more than 1,000 outings. Your contribution will enable even more seniors to enjoy being out and about on more outings.

About the Charity

About Community Foundation of Singapore

The Community Foundation of Singapore (CFS) was founded in 2008 to encourage and enable philanthropy in Singapore. We glean the causes and offer ways for donors to maximise their giving impact through these charitable funds. With our deep understanding of local issues and evolving needs, CFS identifies gaps and opportunities in the community to foster more effective giving. We are the leader in donor-advised funds (DAFs) and our DAF payout rates outperformed the industry benchmark. We engage with over 400 charity partners to identify programmes that impact diverse communities. By enabling real and meaningful change, CFS hopes to inspire a philanthropic culture and build a more caring and cohesive society in Singapore. CFS is a registered charity with Institution of Public Character status.
