The Community Foundation of Singapore was founded in 2008 to encourage and enable philanthropy in Singapore. Since then, we have set up more than 100 charitable funds, giving out some $10 million in grants every year.

We match donors interests with causes and offer ways for them to make a greater impact through their charitable funds. With our deep understanding of local issues and evolving needs, CFS identifies gaps and opportunities in the community to foster more strategic and effective giving.

We engage with over 400 charity partners to identify and develop programmes that impact diverse communities. More importantly, we manage funds and grants with a high level of governance and accountability, so donors can be assured their gift creates lasting benefit for the community.

By creating real and meaningful change, CFS hopes to build a philanthropic culture and a more giving society in Singapore. CFS is a registered charity with Institution of Public Character status.
