Since 1991, the Singapore International Foundation has brought Singaporeans and world communities together to uplift lives and effect positive change, building enduring friendships.

As we celebrate 30 years this year, we remain resolute in our mission. We believe cross-cultural interactions strengthen understanding, inspire action, and enable collaborations for good. Our programmes bring people together to share ideas, skills, and resources in areas such as healthcare, education, arts and culture, as well as business and livelihood.

We do this because we all can, and should do our part to build a better world—one we envision as peaceful, inclusive, and offering opportunities for all.
