Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation (Singapore) and Buddhist Tzu Chi Merit Organization (Singapore) Ltd. are not organising any street fundraising events (e.g. Flag Day). If you encounter such activities in the public, please be vigilant and call our hotline (65) 65829958 for verification.
The recent fundraising activity, ‘Save For A Good Cause’ campaign, is to encourage the public to give rise to kindness and save a little each day in a Tzu Chi bamboo coin bank, to help those in need. Please note that information on all our fundraising activities will be published on our official English and Chinese websites, and all our volunteers soliciting donations will be in full uniform, with a valid fundraising permit issued by relevant government authorities.

In Tzu Chi, we do not differentiate between the giver and the receiver. Our aid beneficiaries are called “Households of Gratitude” as they allow our volunteers opportunities to cultivate gratitude and respect through giving of themselves. By touching lives and serving others with a spirit of equality, we create a culture of humanistic care.
Over the past 20-plus years, we have established our Four Missions of Charity, Medicine, Education, and Humanistic Culture in Singapore. They encompass a wide range of programmes and services that enable us to provide comprehensive, all-round care and assistance to families and individuals in need.
Our island-wide network of volunteers serve the various neighbourhoods by selflessly contributing their skills and efforts. Coming from all walks of life, they share the common goal of working for the betterment of the community.
To forgive others is,
in fact, being kind to ourselves.
