​Held for the fourth consecutive year, the SingHealth Charity Golf tournament 2014 raised a record amount of more than $420,000, thanks to the generous support of event partners and sponsors. Despite a slightly wet start due to a drizzle, the golfers’ spirits were not dampened as more than 140 of them teed off at the Tanjong Course at Sentosa Golf Club.

Mr Lim Boon Heng, Chairman of Temasek Holdings was Guest-of-Honour.   The funds raised will support research and education initiatives under the Surgery, Medicine and Cardiovascular ACPs.

What is a Case for Support?

The two crucial questions that the Case for Support (CFS) must answer are, “Why do you deserve my support?” and “What will my gift accomplish?”   At the end of the day, donors want to be certain that your cause is where they want to invest their money because they can envision the impact

A CFS sets out the cause of the fundraising effort and explains why it is important. Critically, it compels donors to support your cause, as there are hundreds of other competing causes.

A compelling CFS will :
- Clearly define the specific goals and objectives of the projects that need donors’ support
- Demonstrate and explain how the success of the projects will benefit patients
- Outline why you are uniquely positioned to pursue these goals and use the funds effectively to ensure success
