Singtel Touching Lives Fund
Singtel introduced Singtel Touching Lives Fund (STLF), our flagship corporate philanthropy programme in 2002 to support the education of children and youth with special needs in Singapore.
We engage our business associates and partners, employees and members of the public in raising funds for STLF. Singtel underwrites all fundraising costs so that every dollar donated to STLF goes toward our beneficiary organisations. Besides making an annual donation to STLF, Singtel matches every dollar donated by employees to STLF. This matching also applies to funds raised by employees or departments through organising their own fundraising activities for STLF.
