Client Foundations

SymAsia Foundation Limited (SymAsia) is a Non-profit Organization (NPO) under the Economic Development Board of Singapore’s (EDB) Tax Incentive Scheme. It is incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee in Singapore. The Foundation will be subject to an annual external statutory audit by an international public accounting firm.
SymAsia also runs the SymAsia Singapore Fund, which enjoys Institution of a Public Character (IPC) status under the Singapore Charities Act.
SymAsia Foundation is set up as an umbrella foundation. Under this umbrella, clients in Asia Pacific can establish their own “sub-foundations”, enjoy exclusive naming rights, determine the charitable causes they wish to pursue, and the ultimate beneficiaries of their donations. Through their sub-foundations, also known as Donor Advised Funds, clients select their own philanthropic causes and give whenever, wherever and however much they wish.

Donors Decide

Donors control who, when and what they wish to give towards. Through SymAsia, our Donors have supported projects in 5 key areas:
Humanitarian and Social
Culture and the Arts
Health and Sports
Protection of Nature and
the Environment
