From Giv­ing to Im­pact


Singapore Tatler - - FACES | ONLOOKER -

The Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion of Sin­ga­pore (CFS) was founded dur­ing a tumultuous time. Chair­man Lau­rence Lien re­called that it was dur­ing the global fi­nan­cial cri­sis of 2008—hardly good news for a non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion that was set up to en­cour­age and en­able phi­lan­thropy in Sin­ga­pore. But now, 10 years later, 113 char­i­ta­ble funds have been es­tab­lished with CFS, which has raised more than $100m and dis­bursed around $60m to over 400 char­i­ta­ble or­gan­i­sa­tions in Sin­ga­pore, said CEO Cather­ine Loh at its 10th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions at The Arts House in Septem­ber. Lien and Loh also paid tribute to CFS’ donors and char­ity part­ners, and en­cour­aged ev­ery­one to not only give more, but also give well and chan­nel them for im­pact.
