Issue 6: Be The Change We Can Be

11 Dec 2015, e-Newsletter

What’s wonderful about an idea is how it grows and develops. Before long, it isn’t just one person’s idea. As more people get involved, it takes on a life of its own. It belongs to everyone. More Than Words developed that way, driven by an empowered TCTF team and enlightened trainers. After three years, two performances and two children’s books, it has left its stamp on 2,000 people from over 35 charities. It has grown wings.

Issue 5: Being a Catalyst for Change

31 Aug 2015, e-Newsletter

Catalytic philanthropy is easier said than done. It takes effort and time to nurture potential and to create multiplier impact. Whilst the foundation supports students through bond-free scholarships and bursaries, we are mindful to also invest in their personal growth. This means how they develop in their character and values, and how they perceive their roles in our community.
