Today's Scholars - Tomorrow's Leaders

The SJI Foundation has launched a fundraising campaign, Today’s Scholars - Tomorrow’s Leaders (the “Fundraising Campaign”), commensurate with our aims and objectives, which seeks to raise S$1,000,000 over five years for our projects.

A gift to the SJI Foundation supports the Josephian community as a whole.

Benefactors like you make it possible for the SJI Foundation to empower all deserving students to become people of integrity and people for others. Your support, and the support of our other benefactors, will enable us to serve not only your children but other children who can benefit from a Lasallian education for generations to come.

 

Together, we can build a lasting and significant legacy as we nurture men and women for others, who enter our Lasallian schools to learn and leave proudly thereafter to serve.

 

Please help us ensure that ability and talent, not financial background, determines access to world-class education. Your support for the Lasallian schools and all it hopes to achieve is greatly appreciated.

Our Aims and Objectives

  • To support education and growth of young people in Singapore and the region.

  • To offer scholarships and allowances to students of our Lasallian schools in Singapore and the region.

  • To provide a platform for students, former students of the schools, teachers, volunteers and supporters to carry out educational, outreach and service projects in Singapore and the region.

Our Projects

Since its establishment in 2010, the SJI Foundation has supported the Lasallian schools in Singapore. The SJI Foundation funded the private training courses for teachers from St. Joseph’s Institution (SJI).

 

To mark the 165th anniversary of St Joseph’s Institution’s founding in 1852, the SJI Foundation has established the SJI Foundation - Christ’s College Cambridge Scholarship Programme (“SJI Foundation Scholarship Programme”) to award up to two scholarships to students from SJI and SJI International to pursue a full-time undergraduate degree at Christ’s College Cambridge. Christ's College was founded in 1437 and is one of the most distinctive amongst the Cambridge Colleges.

 

By providing partial and un-bonded financial support, the SJI Foundation Scholarship Programme assists our outstanding graduates who have the drive and passion to become leaders of tomorrow.

 

For the year 2020, the SJI Foundation awarded one scholarship to a student from SJI who has been offered a place at Christ’s College, Cambridge. The scholarship holder will begin his full‐time undergraduate degree in October 2021 and will read Economics. The scholarship, which amounts to a total value of S$60,000, will be disbursed over a period of three years commencing from October 2021.

 

The SJI Foundation Scholarship Programme is an exciting project and will play an important role in enhancing the brand and standing of the Lasallian Schools and we look to you for your support for our projects.

Why we need your support

The Fundraising Campaign is expected to be a multi‐year fundraising effort and the SJI Foundation seeks to raise S$ 2,000,000 over 2020 and 2021 to promote SJI Foundation’s main objects, including: to support SJI, SJI International and other Lasallian schools in Singapore; to carry out programmes and activities in support of the Lasallian mission of educating and developing the young into men and women of integrity and men and women for others; and to support students, teachers, volunteers and supporters to undertake educational, outreach and service projects.

 

More specifically, funds received through the Fundraising Campaign will support the following initiatives:

(a) SJI Foundation – Christ’s College Cambridge Scholarship, which is a merit‐based scholarship programme to provide un‐bonded financial support for the scholarship recipients’ tertiary education;

(b) Bursaries and Scholarships for School Fees / Extra‐Curricular Activities (ECAs), which extends financial support for students’ school fees and ECAs;

 

(c) Innovation Project Grants, which provide funding for student‐led initiatives which encourage the development of entrepreneurialism, creativity and leadership, such as initiatives which specifically target improving the quality of the educational environment at schools or providing access to education in poorer communities;

 

(d) Pocket Money for the Needy, which is intended to ensure that needy pupils undergoing their studies retain the basic dignities, such as access to basic necessities including allowances for food and transport; and

 

(e) Catholic Education Conference, which is held biennially and provides a platform for educators and students to meet and share ideas and views about Catholic education in Singapore.

 

The SJI Foundation requires funding and financial support as it is a charitable institution and does not receive any financial support from the government or the Lasallian schools.

 

Knowing the generosity of our community and the importance we all place on education, we are confident that it is achievable.
