Our distinguished Guest-of-Honour will be Her Excellency, President Halimah Yacob. She is an active champion for senior volunteerism and it is indeed a morale booster for us to have her as the Guest-of-Honour. Her support will lead to more seniors who will become encouraged and motivated to step forth as active volunteers.
As befits the significance of our 20th Anniversary, our target is to raise a total of at least $1,000,000 in support of RSVP's mission to provide opportunities for seniors to serve the community with their talent and experience through purpose-driven volunteerism. This is by far our most ambitious fundraising target.
All proceeds will go towards the growth of RSVP's programmes in number, breadth and depth. Our programmes already benefit the mentally disadvantaged, at-risk children from low income families, socially isolated seniors and elderly discharged patients from our public hospitals. Our Volunteer Learning Centre has also done pioneering work in volunteering skills and helped to bridge the IT divide for seniors.
About the Charity
RSVP Singapore is a non-profit organisation and an Institution of Public Character. Since its inception in 1998, RSVP Singapore has been actively engaging seniors to serve the community with their talent and experience through purpose-driven volunteerism. Through impactful community service programmes, we serve more than 200,000 beneficiaries each year. These include the mentally disadvantaged, at-risk children from low income families and socially isolated seniors. RSVP's programmes are designed to support and empower senior volunteers to embody its core values of lifelong learning, active ageing, integrity, sharing experience and service. We will be celebrating our achievements of 20 years of senior volunteerism this year. To commemorate this occasion, we will be organising a Gala Charity Dinner on 31 October 2018 at Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel to raise funds to support our community programmes. Thus, all donations received through Giving.sg this year will be channeled towards our Gala Charity Dinner.
