About the Compassion Fund
The Law Society of Singapore has set up the LawSoc-SBF Foundation Compassion Fund (the “Fund”), as part of a new financial outreach initiative kindly launched by Singapore Business Federation to offer one-off financial aid and one-stop referral support to employees in need within the industry.
Among the principal beneficiaries we aim to help are Law Society members as well as law firm employees impacted by the current situation or faced with sudden and unexpected personal or family adversity directly or indirectly due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Fund is a catalyst for our members and law firms to offer a common platform for employees to seek help and be supported by caring employers and co-workers not just during COVID-19 but beyond, to cope with the lingering and lasting effects of COVID-19.
The legal fraternity has to do our part to move with compassion and stand in solidarity together with employees in need. We sincerely hope that you will take the lead in these trying times to donate to the LawSoc-SBF Foundation Compassion Fund. Donations will qualify for 2.5x tax deduction. In addition, the SBF Foundation will match $1 for every $1 raised, capped at $200,000 before or by 1 September 2020.
This is a pioneering effort by the legal profession, of the legal profession and for the legal profession. We look forward to your strong support to build a nurturing and caring workforce; with the common goal of compassion from the inside out.
