Create a Named Fund

When you create a named fund with the largest and oldest tertiary hospital in Singapore, you are establishing a legacy of cure and hope through SGH. You can choose to impact many generations of patients, healthcare work and research with an endowed gift or enable immediate impact with an expendable gift. In partnership with the SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre, your philanthropic gift and legacy can be designated to uncover cures, nurture future-ready healthcare workforce, and improve the lives of patients in Singapore and beyond.

Partner us and call 6326 6728 / 6326 6378 or email for a confidential discussion on your philanthropic aspirations.
