We actualise our commitment as a responsible corporate citizen by supporting efforts that build people and communities through education, healthcare and research; build bridges between peoples through deeper understanding and friendship; build better governance through a culture of integrity and excellence; and rebuild lives and livelihoods devastated by major natural disasters.
We have committed almost S$1 billion over the last decade to fund research institutions, scholarships and other public good beneficiaries, of which S$500 million was endowed to the Temasek Trust in May 2007. More recently, to mark our 35th anniversary, we gifted another S$100 million to the Temasek Trust, this time to support Temasek Cares for community programmes in Singapore.
