The journey of life is coloured by many milestones -- birthdays, graduation, weddings, anniversaries, retirement and more. You can spread the love while celebrating your own -- dedicate your next special occasion to change lives!
For example, as a meaningful alternative to traditional wedding favours, you can make a donation to our Charity. Your guests will be heartened to know that your gesture of appreciation to them is something that would help someone's life.
Donations of SGD$5,000 & above will be recognized on our Roll-of-Honour at TTSH.
About the Charity
In keeping with Mr Tan Tock Seng's Legacy of Giving, Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) set up its charity arm, TTSH Community Fund, in August 1995 to improve the quality of life of our patients and the community. Our Charity turns 25 in 2020, this is made possible with the community's effort and continuous support.
Today, our Charity runs more than 100 patient-centred programmes, disbursing more than $2 million each year for the Charity's activities. We support over 2,500 needy patient cases, especially the elderly and those who fall through the cracks of the system, and those who are unable to receive help from traditional charitable agencies.
From expensive non-standard medication and breathing equipment to mobility aids, community rehabilitation programmes, and even dentures to help them eat better, TTSH Community Fund helps needy patients to gain greater independence, improve their quality of life and enable them to integrate back into the community. The Fund also supports healthcare research, innovation, and training for our staff and the community to deliver better patient care.
Our Charity runs entirely on public donations. Every dollar to the Charity goes directly to support our activities. The TTSH Community Fund is a registered charity with IPC status.
