Financial Assistance

How we help?


Provide financial assistance schemes to help needy families to cope with the rising costs of living, and students in the pursuit of their education.




Cornerstone Development Initiatives


The Cornerstone Development Initiatives seeks to ensure that every child has an opportunity to complete their foundational education despite their family circumstances. The School Allowance funds are awarded to selected Primary and Secondary students who have qualified in our application and selection processes.

Since its inception in 2008, we have assisted over 1,600 students in pursuing their education through awards amounting to more than $700,000. (Updated as of 2017)




Food Care Programme


This programme started in March 2013 with the aim of helping needy families in financial difficulties. Through this programme, the families can obtain food and daily necessities at no cost. Apart from providing the food pack, this programme serves to provide additional social and emotional support to the needy families through our volunteers.

“The Worldwide Cost of Living survey found that Singapore remains the most expensive place in the world to buy and run a car, due to the Certificate of Entitlement (COE) system. It is also “consistently expensive” in other categories.” (TODAYonline, 10 March 2016)
