Community Chest was established in 1983 to raise funds for the many social service agencies in Singapore. The public funds raised through Community Chest are channelled to programmes that provide direct social support services and are relevant and critical to helping the disadvantaged. Periodic reviews of services are done to check for viability, effectiveness, and relevance of programmes.
Support provided goes towards empowering the vulnerable to live with dignity in a caring and inclusive society. There are five key causes – children with special needs and youth-at-risk, adults with disabilities, persons with mental health conditions, and seniors and families in need of assistance.
Applications are now closed.
New applications will be routed through the 4ST Partnership Fund (4STPF) from April 2023 onwards.
