Singapore – Philanthropy Empowering the Next Generation of Giving 2021

The Ireland Funds Singapore Young Leaders and The Irish Chamber of Commerce Singapore are proud to present our first joint webinar ‘Philanthropy – Empowering the Next Generation of Giving’ with opening address by Ambassador of Ireland to Singapore, H.E. Patrick Bourne.

Living in Singapore, we are often surrounded by the finer things in life and the necessity to provide charitable support may not always be so apparent from the outset.

We cordially invite you to join us for this engaging panel discussion moderated by Louise Broderick, Chairperson of The Ireland Funds Singapore Young Leaders, and with four inspirational speakers:

  • Cedric Chew, CEO at EQUAL
  • Lesli Berggren, Founder and Executive Director at LOVE NILS
  • Cassandra Chiu, Singaporean Psychotherapist, Social Advocate, and Equal Opportunity Consultant
  • Neil Best, Co-Founder and Head Coach at Singapore Irish Rugby Club

Providing support and services to those in need in Singapore, our panel will offer interesting insights on the importance and impact of giving, different ways of giving and the benefits of social responsibility, and how you can support those in need in Singapore.

The Ireland Funds Singapore Young Leaders Network was established in July 2020 and aims to cultivate an emerging generation of philanthropists, connecting Singapore and Irish communities, and inspiring positive change through support for The Ireland Funds Singapore beneficiaries.

This year, the Young Leaders are raising funds to support a groundbreaking project (details below) by EQUAL, an award-winning animal assisted intervention centre that develops life skills in youth, people with special needs, families, and elderly with dementia.

The Singapore Young Leaders Network currently has 25 members and has raised over half of our fundraising target of $10,000, so appreciate your support.

We look forward to you joining us for this webinar on Thursday 22 April at 5pm – 6pm SGT.


As a young professional in Singapore you are also invited to join The Ireland Funds Singapore Young Leaders and become part of the worldwide Ireland Funds Young Leaders, with fundraising, networking and social events in Singapore and invitations to global Ireland Funds events.

THE YOUNG LEADERS FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN
This year, The Ireland Funds Singapore Young Leaders are raising monies to support a ground-breaking project by EQUAL​ (www.equal.org.sg), an award-winning animal-assisted intervention centre that develops life skills in youth, people with special needs, families, and elderly with dementia.

The project will see rescued therapy horses becoming a familiar sight in a school for children with special needs, where animal-assisted intervention will be integrated into their special needs curriculum for the first time in Singapore.

Your webinar registration fee or donation will support the purchase of a customised canopy tent for the programme, providing shelter from the heat and rain for the children as they experience the joy of riding horses in a comfortable setting whilst developing their motor and social-emotional skills. Thanks for your support for this wonderful project!
