Temasek Trust launches the [email protected] fund to support ground-up initiatives that respond to community needs in Singapore as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The new [email protected] fund will enable initiatives and ideas and empower our community to look out for one another in these crucial times of need. By encouraging and supporting ground-up movements, Temasek Trust hopes to advocate and catalyse positive community action by our people and emerge better and stronger together.
To be anchored by a S$10 million gift from Temasek, Temasek Trust will manage the [email protected] fund to support projects that embrace the values of Ownership, Sustainability, Care, Assurance, Resilience (OSCAR). This programme will provide up to $5,000 of direct sponsorship, and further match a “dollar-for-dollar” of third-party funding sources of up to $50,000, with a provision to increase up to $100,000 in exceptional cases.
The [email protected] fund has already attracted donations from corporate partners and individual philanthropists. Among them, Pavilion Capital and ABC World Asia rallied behind the cause and donated a further $1.7 million to the effort.
Individuals or groups of individuals can apply for the grant. Non-Profit Organisations registered with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA) or the Registry of Societies (ROS) are also welcome to apply. Applicants to the fund must submit a workable implementation plan, with adequate risk consideration and impact accountability.
