From the Heart
NUS alumni spread the love, with over $374,000 raised to support undergraduates.
Alumni and friends of NUS have raised over $374,000 for undergraduates of the University. The NUS’ Celebration of Love and Appreciation Dinner was held on 21 February to celebrate the continual support from the NUS alumni community.
The fundraising activity was spearheaded by the NUS Alumni Students Advancement Committee (ASAC) established by the NUS Alumni Advisory Board. “The ASAC was formed in 2013 and led by our very own NUS Alumni, to develop and nurture initiatives that support bursaries for underprivileged students in NUS. This effort is one of the many ongoing fundraising activities organised by the committee for the alumni to give back to the NUS community in the spirit of love,” said Mr Johnny Tan (Science ’82), Co-Chairman of the NUS Alumni Advisory Board, who also chairs ASAC.The total donations raised by the ASAC through this latest fundraising activity could potentially support awards to benefit almost 40 undergraduates from various NUS faculties.
The dinner event was organised by NUS Alumni Relations, NUS Development Office and NUS Campus Couples Alumni. Close to 250 NUS alumni donors and friends of the University engaged and reconnected with the NUS community at the appreciation dinner.
