Leave behind a gift that could comfort those around you and motivate them to lead a meaningful life.

A planned gift is a very personal way of helping, which holds much meaning to both givers and receivers. While losses are imminent and painful, a planned gift is a final parting gift that could gently comfort those around and motivate them to lead meaningful life. These donation gifts are also a source of inspiration for the receivers to encourage them to persevere in face of difficulties, and to let them know that they are not alone in their struggles. There is no better way to leave a loving memory and, at the same time, create lasting impact than to present a planned gift.

Planned giving is a simple yet convenient way to show that you care. Apart from having the option of choosing the cause that holds special meaning to you, it also gives you control on how to manage your assets to do good and there is no effect on your current financial standing. See below for more details.



  • Giving a cause which holds special meaning to you
  • Role model for friends and family to do likewise


  • Sense of power to manage your asset to do good
  • Choice of preferred cause
  • Option to make changes


  • No effect on your current financial standing as your assets are transferred to your preferred charity only after you passed on
