We have come a long way since 1983. Established by Dr. Ee Peng Liang, under the then Singapore Council of Social Service (SCSS), we were set up to raise funds to support charities so that they can better utilise their limited resources.
Dr. Ee, our founder as well as a well-respected philanthropic figure, had devoted more than 50 years in charitable causes. Known as the Father of Charity, he embodied generosity, selflessness and passion. Under his dedicated leadership, we became a major fund-raising body in the social service sector today.
In 1992, SCSS restructured to form National Council of Social Service (NCSS) as the national co-ordinating body for social services in Singapore. Dr. Ee handed over his position as President of NCSS to Dr. Robert CK Loh, and position as Chairman of Community Chest to Dr. Richard Eu.
Throughout the years, we continue to be the fund-raising arm of NCSS, and with your continued support, we will work hard to achieve the objectives Dr. Ee had set out to do — raising funds to support charities so that they can care for and serve the less advantaged.
