Compassion Fund Ltd

“The Tote Board Fund-Raising Programme is a wonderful motivator, and an integral part of our charity golf event and all the Fund-Raising efforts by compassion fund.”

“Compassion Fund Charity Golf entered its second year on 12 July 2019. A total of $297,452 was raised via the sale of flights, auction[s], outright donations, and Tote Board's 20% matching grant. Guest of Honour, Minister S. Iswaran, teed off to launch the event, which attracted 144 golfers for a good cause.”

The Tote Board Fund-Raising Programme is a wonderful motivator, and an integral part of our Charity Golf event and all the fund-raising efforts by Compassion Fund. Having that premium added onto the total is not only very rewarding, it also adds a "happy" factor that encourages donations, as donors know their dollar is stretched further. Through Tote Board's support, we improve the lives of more children and their families.

Beyond Social Services

“For the past 10 years, the partnership with Tote Board has been critical in enabling us to refine, grow, and lead a community building process in public rental neighbourhoods, where the needs of its vulnerable residents are met by a good balance of state and community initiatives. For us, Tote Board has been a valuable mentor that helped us to think critically about the impact we are making, as well as a motivator and resource that enhanced our fund-raising capabilities."

Singapore Red Cross Society

“OVER THE YEARS, THE MATCHING GRANTS BY TOTE BOARD HAVE BEEN, AND STILL REMAIN, A KEY COMPONENT OF SRC’s FUND-RAISING STRATEGY.”

“In 2019, Tote Board supported eight fund-raising projects by the Singapore Red Cross, through its Commemorative Fund-Raising Initiative. The funding supported our local humanitarian services, and, in turn, enabled us to uplift vulnerable communities, including the isolated elderly, persons with severe disabilities, and families-in-need. Over the years, the matching grants by Tote Board have been, and still remain, a key component of SRC's fund-raising strategy. In fact, some donors are encouraged to make larger gifts upon learning about the additional support from Tote Board, for the SRC to raise more funds and help more people.”

AIN Society

“FOR SMALL SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCY LIKE AIN SOCIETY WITH LIMITED RESOURCES, IT IS NOT EASY TO ACHIEVE OUR FUND-RAISING TARGETS PURELY FROM OUR FUND-RAISING EVENTS... WE ARE GRATEFUL TO TOTE BOARD FOR CONSISTENTLY SUPPORTING OUR FUND-RAISING INITIATIVES OVER THE YEARS.”

“For small social service agency like Ain Society with limited resources, it is not easy to achieve our fund-raising targets purely from our fund-raising events. Hence, we are grateful to Tote Board for consistently supporting our fund-raising initiatives over the years. One such event supported by Tote Board was our annual charity dinner held at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport on Wednesday, 16 October 2019, with Health Minister Gan Kim Yong as our Guest of Honour.

This annual charity dinner is a very special event for Ain Society and our beneficiaries. Not only [are] we able to raise funds to support our programmes and services for our mainly low income cancer-stricken families, we also have donors who sponsor tables for our beneficiaries to attend the dinner. In addition, the event management company that helps us to organise the annual dinner does it on [a] pro-bono basis. It is indeed heartening to see many sectors of our economy coming together to support the less advantaged.”
