Donors and beneficiaries came together recently at the Annual Giving Appreciation Reception held at the National University of Singapore Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music.
The event, hosted by Provost Professor Tan Eng Chye, is held annually to recognise the generosity of Annual Giving (AG) supporters and provide an opportunity for the students they have helped to share their stories.
In his speech, Prof Tan thanked the donors for their selfless giving and said, “Your gift, however big or small, is precious and makes a blessed difference to the lives of beneficiaries. And, cumulatively, the impact is significant.” He also stressed the difference the donors make to students’ lives by providing them with hope, inspiration and opportunity.
During the Reception, AG Guild donors and students who received financial aid mingled and shared their experiences. The AG team also aired a video of successful alumni who were awarded bursaries or scholarships whilst at NUS. Alumni featured in the video included Mdm Heng Boey Hong, Principal of Nanyang Girls’ High School; Mr S R Nathan, former President of Singapore, Seow Tzi Yang, an NUS law graduate and Jayathilake Pahalagedara, a recipient of a PhD in Engineering.
