In the spirit of bringing the community together, URA organised a fundraising drive to
adopt the benches from the ‘Re:Bench’ campaign and limited existing pieces from the original ‘bench’
competition with a minimum donation of S$10,000 per bench on 20 March 2019. $40,000 was raised to
support about 80 charities under Community Chest to serve those in need.
Trends and needs in Singapore’s social services were shared with Credit Suisse
Relationship Managers. They also experienced how Virtual Reality was used creatively in TOUCH Community
Services’ mental health outreach initiatives.
Community Chest was invited to share about the Onefor10 initiative and how to advocate
to High Net Worth clients about social service philanthropy with about 50 DBS Private Bank Relationship
Managers on 5 August 2019.
Community Chest was invited to advocate the Onefor10 initiative on 8 April 2019 during
“Windows on Philanthropy”, an annual networking series hosted by DBS Private Bank to engage their High
Net Worth clients in the area of philanthropy.
Think of giving not only as a duty but as a privilege.
