RMHC Singapore Grant Making Programme

RMHC Singapore believes in a “many helping hands” approach in meeting the critical needs of the community. Besides trying to improve the health and well-being of children directly through our core programmes, we also work with other non-profit organisations and hospitals within Singapore that are making an immediate, positive impact on children and youth through our Grant Making Programme. Through the Grant Making Programme, RMHC Singapore is able to develop strong relationships with other community partners in a simple shared mission of improving the health and well-being of children and youth in Singapore.

Our Grant Making Programme helps move donation dollars quickly through to these organisations in their time of need to carry out projects or programmes that would directly benefit children and youth in Singapore. Grants to these organisations extend the reach and impact of RMHC Singapore.

Our inaugural Grant Making Programme made its first grant call on 15 April 2014, awarding grants to programmes/projects undertaken by hospitals and non-profit agencies that have a direct impact on improving the health and well-being of children and youth in Singapore.
