Temasek Foundation Cares is a Singapore-based non-profit philanthropic organisation that funds and supports meaningful and innovative community-based programmes for the benefit of Singaporeans. It aims to contribute to the well-being, dignity and livelihood of needy individuals, families and communities by building people, building communities, building capabilities and rebuilding lives.

In addition to its existing endowment, Temasek Foundation Cares also oversees three others - the Balaji Sadasivan Endowment for healthcare capability building, the Ee Peng Liang Endowment for social services capability building and the Temasek Emergency Preparedness (T-PREP) Fund for enhancing community emergency resilience and preparedness.

Programmes supported by Temasek Foundation Cares are implemented in partnership with various voluntary welfare organisations, non-profit organisations, government agencies and other institutions. Together with these partners, it pilots new ideas and models of care to foster positive and sustained social impact within the community, fulfilling the needs for care now and in future.

Temasek Foundation Cares, along with Temasek Foundation International, Temasek Foundation Connects, Temasek Foundation Nurtures, Temasek Foundation Innovates and Temasek Foundation Ecosperity, is guided by its respective strategic thrusts and mandates to drive its community programmes. Temasek Trust, together with the six Foundations and Temasek Foundation Management Services, form the Temasek Family of Foundations.

The purpose and mission of Temasek Foundation Cares is to contribute to the well-being, dignity and livelihood of underprivileged individuals, families and communities in Singapore. In carrying out its mission, Temasek Foundation Cares seeks to partner with various established organisations to support existing programmes, or to develop needed new programmes which contribute to the well-being, dignity and livelihood of our beneficiaries. As a community co-investor, Temasek Foundation Cares looks to join with other donors to complement the efforts of the Government as part of the "Many Helping Hands" approach to helping the less fortunate. As a catalyst, we hope to support new programmes or models that can bring about better outcomes to those in need. As a leader, we hope to inspire and attract other donors to worthy causes which are under-served and which could do with more support.
