These five guiding principles were developed based on SIF’s goals and express what we believe is right according to our mission and core values.
We begin with the mission in mind
We harness the power of friendship fostered between Singaporeans and world communities through our programmes to enrich lives and effect positive change.
We are committed to building meaningful partnerships
We actively seek to partner individuals and institutions with similar interests to enhance the effectiveness of our programmes and advance common goals. We are results-oriented and responsibly deliver on our commitments to our stakeholders.
We treat others and ourselves with respect
We treat all people with dignity, honesty, and fairness at all times. We show respect by listening to and seeking to understand different points of views, being sensitive to cultural and religious diversity, and by working collaboratively with others to achieve common goals and a harmonious work culture.
We care for our people and are committed to helping them realise their potential
People are at the centre of what we do and we succeed through our people. We are committed to providing our employees with a value proposition that brings out the best in them. We nurture our talents through continuous learning and professional development.
We are responsible stewards of the resources and goodwill entrusted to us
Each of us will act responsibly and with integrity, as we optimise the use of resources, constantly seeking opportunities and innovative ways to create value through the work that we do to further our mission.
These three core values represent what we believe should guide our internal conduct as well as our relationship with world communities.
We give our best in all that we do, and believe in being dynamic and innovative in creating value to further our mission and deliver on our promises.
We value relationships and harness the power of partnerships because we firmly believe we can achieve more together.
We are people-centred and supportive because our success is achieved through, for and by people.
