What we stand for

A better and brighter tomorrow belongs to everyone, not just a few. 

At DBS Foundation, we are committed to supporting vulnerable segments so that those with the fewest resources are not denied the opportunity to improve their circumstances and face the future with confidence.

We believe that when their essential needs are cared for – food on the table, a warm bed, and a healthy mind and body – they can look forward to what lies ahead. When they are equipped with financial and digital literacy skills, they can access opportunities to get ahead.

In addition, we champion purpose-driven enterprises and invest in those that are dedicated to helping the less fortunate. 

Through catalytic philanthropy, and in partnership with those who care, we can drive change, create impact, and build a better world.
