Tan Chin Tuan Foundation
The Tan Chin Tuan Foundation (TCTF) was established on 10 April 1976 by the late banker and philanthropist Tan Sri (Dr) Tan Chin Tuan (1908 – 2005) to share with society the rewards of a highly illustrious career. He rendered assistance to the deserving and provided services that helped uplift the less fortunate. Today, the contributions of the Foundation reflect the Founder’s philosophy of how money should be channelled for social good. The Foundation strives to support causes and projects that are viable, sustainable and well-managed with definable social outcomes.
To lead in the way philanthropy is practised by inspiring others through our words and deeds.
We strive to achieve optimal social outcomes that are measurable and sustainable, particularly in education and community development. We encourage collaboration amongst deserving groups, to achieve a multiplier and lasting benefit.
