National Council of Social Service
We are a fund-raising and engagement arm of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). As such, our role and purpose are aligned with NCSS to ensure that every person has the opportunity to live a life of dignity to his or her fullest potential within our society. We raise funds to support charities so that they can do what they are best at - caring for and serving the less advantaged. Community Chest was established in 1983 with a simple yet vital mission: to raise funds for the nation's many charities. It is about raising funds from the community for the community in need. Charities supported by Community Chest are then able to do what they are best at n providing critical social service programmes to help children with special needs, people with disabilities, frail and lonely elderly and families facing difficulties. Over the years, Community Chest has built an enduring trust and partnership with many organisations, foundations and individuals and raised millions of much-needed dollars that enabled us to care for our beneficiaries.
