NUS Greater Good Series – From beneficiary to philanthropist

21 Sep 2016, NUS Giving

“Paying it forward”, the latest in the Greater Good Series events organised by the National University of Singapore, brought to life the concept of the circle of giving through the stories of the late Tan Sri (Dr) Tan Chin Tuan, as told by his granddaughter Ms Chew Gek Hiang, and Mr Lee Kok Wah. Ms Chew, council member of the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation, recounted that her grandfather realised that education was key to achieving success in life. As such, the Foundation he founded in 1976 continues to support mainly educational causes and help others achieve their potential, so they can, in turn, contribute to society.
