When Covid-19 hit our shores, The Majurity Trust with the support of Singapore-based family foundations, philanthropists and corporate partners launched the Singapore Strong Fund (SSF). It was the start of challenging times for Singapore. But the unprecedented difficulties compelled us to do more for ground-up initiatives that rose up to face the challenges head-on.
- Applicants should be from ground-up teams. (i.e. volunteer-led and driven groups)
- Applicants should be at least 18 years old and above and residing in Singapore.
- Applicants’ ground-up initiative should benefit local vulnerable communities.
- Ground-up teams that are looking to build capacity and/or trial new approaches to serve the community.
Support & Collaborate
The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve today. The fear that gripped us at the start of the crisis has given way to a new normal as our society adjusts and copes.
Despite the unprecedented difficulties we have been facing, we continue to see an overwhelming outpouring of kindness, strength and resilience in our community. Our SG Strong grantees (groups of individuals and not-for-profit organisations) continue to meet needs on the ground today, particularly those who are most vulnerable and struggling.
We are humbled and encouraged by the opportunity that The Majurity Trust has been given to support and enable the ground-up initiatives to do good. As we move forward, we remain committed to support and nurture this network of SG Strong grantees to collaborate and grow to meet the ever-present needs of vulnerable in our community.

The Majurity Trust would like to thank the following philanthropists, foundations and corporate offices for giving to the SG Strong Fund. Their quick response allowed the ground-up initiatives to meet the urgent needs of the community during the COVID-19 crisis:
