Ensuring long-term viability of community causes through disciplined financial investment and disbursement

Across more than 19 endowments, Temasek Trust ensures that all Temasek assets earmarked for philanthropic pursuits are responsibly and sustainably managed throughout a spectrum of community programmes.

To date, we have managed well over $2 billion in gifts and endowments.



Health and Wellness Endowment

The Health and Wellness Endowment, which is managed by Temasek Foundation Cares, is one of Temasek’s latest endowments. It focuses on preventive health and the general well-being of the community.

This endowment has enabled the 2018 nation-wide launch of Project Silver Screen, a community-based functional screening for seniors aged 60 and above to help them see, hear and eat better.

The elderly are more vulnerable to health conditions that will impact their quality of life, yet many of these conditions are preventable, or treatable, with effective community-based screening.

Project Silver Screen consists of three simple checks that cover eyesight, hearing and oral health, and helps defray the costs of assistive aids in these areas, such as glasses, hearing aids and dentures.

To date, more than 40,000 seniors have benefitted from this initiative, and 200,000 seniors are to be screened over the next five years.
