Love leaves a memory no one can steal. - Richard Puz
Remembrance donation is one comforting way to keep a person's memory alive.
For example, in memory of your loved ones, you can encourage your family and friends to make a donation instead of wreaths. You may want to share with us the story* of the person you are remembering, and/or make a dedicated donation in confidence to let their memory live on through our life-saving work.

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.
