Volunteer & Partner Awards 2022


Community Chest chairman Mr Phillip Tan Eng Seong has been recognised with this year’s Outstanding Lifetime Volunteer Award at the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) Volunteer & Partner Awards, presented to individuals or organisations who have consistently partnered with MSF over 30 or more years to better the lives of others.

Mr Tan has volunteered with MSF since 1983. In his role as an EXCO member of the National Council of Social Service, Mr Tan contributed to the transformation of NCSS and the social service sector. He cultivated a community spirit in building a caring and inclusive society through the Care & Share SG50 movement, which saw 240 social service agencies raise a total of $800 million and rejuvenated the Sharity initiative to nurture our next generation of givers. During the pandemic, he spearheaded the establishment of the ComChest Emergency Fund and mobilised resources for COVID-19 related funds.

Congratulations as well to our other Community Chest committee members, who were also recognised at the Awards.
