Let Us Transform The Lives Of Our Children Through The Arts

Launched in 2005, The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF) originated from a conviction that no child with strong interest and potential in the arts should be denied the opportunity to develop his or her talents due to a lack of financial resources.

The Fund reaches out to financially disadvantaged children and youth from six to 19 years old where they receive fully sponsored arts training at The Little Arts Academy and 10 Square Youth. The training provides opportunities for the beneficiaries to explore and nurture their interest and talents in music, dance, theatre, visual arts and technology. Over the years, the children and youth have grown in confidence and resilience through their journey in the arts. We are heartened by the research conducted by Kantar Consulting in 2019 that showed a strong impact of the arts training on our beneficiaries' socio-emotional development and aspirations (baf.sg/impact-of-bt-baf/).

We hope you may open your hearts to support our children and youth so that they may continue to pursue their artistic talents and achieve their aspirations. All donations qualify for 2.5 times tax deduction.

Do visit our website and Facebook for more information about our outreach and programmes as well as the performances and artworks of our beneficiaries.
