help is our main goal!

Even after Singapore government subsidies, there are parents that struggle to pay for fees and other expenses of educating their children, particularly in respect of higher education. The result is that a number of children drop out of the education system early and never achieve their maximum potential. Some will obtain lower grade jobs others may end up unemployed and in some cases as problem members of society.


Message from Patron

“After the successful launch of the Joseph William Yee Eu Foundation in Malaysia by the District Grand Lodge of the Eastern Archipelago (DGLEA), it was resolved that DGLEA should establish a Masonic Charitable Fund in Singapore to assist worthy students with their educational needs.

How glad am I that this has now come to fruition with the formal launch of the Masonic Charity Fund on 8th June 2019 by the Singapore Minister of Law, Mr Shanmugam together with our Assistant Grand Master Sir David Hugh Wutton.

Since the very start , the Fund has been blessed with generous donations from DGLEA and well -wishers and with the energetic team of Trustees headed by their current President, Dr Brian Shegar, the Fund is well poised to grow from strength to strength. Active disbursement of Bursary awards have already commenced. In its formative years, the Fund was lead by non other than Rtd. Justice Rubin Mohideen who gave it the much desired boost off the starting block.

It is important for us to always remember that we should find some way to give back to the communities from which we draw our strength. To this end, I am heartened by the work entered into by this Fund and look forward to its tremendous contribution through the years to come. I have no doubt that the Fund will play a positive role in the lives of the students in Singapore in providing a gentle and uplifting breeze in support of their aspirations.”
