About 1000 Philanthropists
Philanthropy is derived from a Greek word, which loosely translates to mean, the love of mankind. If we think of it that way, then it becomes possible for each and every one of us to become philanthropists!
The 1000 Philanthropists (1000P) programme is an initiative by Singapore Children’s Society that began in 2014 to unite our supporters over the years into a special league of their own and recognising the significant contributions made by our top-tier donors. We want to connect like-minded people together into a framework to celebrate and honour their unwavering faith in our cause.
Often, philanthropy is associated with the ultra-rich and fancy fund-raisers. We are here to tell you that is not always the story. Some of our ardent supporters over the years have been from the most humble and simplest of backgrounds. This goes to prove that one need not amass a fortune to be philanthropic. You can just be an ordinary person with an extraordinary passion to help our children-in-need. And for that, it would mean so much to us to have you on board our 1000P programme. We are grateful to have Senior Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security, Mr Teo Chee Hean as our Patron for 1000P.
Come on board and be part of our 1000 Philanthropists programme!
