Since our founding, Rajah & Tann has had a history in social giving and plays an entrenched role in contributing to the community at large. 

Established in 2011, the Rajah & Tann Foundation is the vehicle through which Rajah & Tann Singapore launches its charitable programmes and contributions. Being the first eponymous foundation dedicated to giving and social causes established by a law firm in Singapore, the Rajah & Tann Foundation is a cornerstone of the firm’s corporate social responsibility vision and is an endorsement of the values and legacy of our founding partners.

Through this Foundation, we hope to play our part as responsible corporate citizen and give back to the community in line with the following goals:

  • Supporting the future and development of underprivileged children
  • Providing the necessary care and aid to the elderly
  • Offering assistance to the disadvantaged groups and individuals in our community


Creating Connections, Deepening Relationships

Our pro bono work covers both legal and non-legal services, reaching out to needy individuals, charitable and non-profit organisations and their beneficiaries. Each year, we reach out to a diverse group of beneficiaries, including the elderly, children, youth-at-risk, while also benefiting those with special needs, underprivileged, academia, and the community at large.

We strive to maintain lasting relationships with the charitable organisations we work with by offering impactful support to these organisations and their beneficiaries. We commit to our regular pro bono legal clinics on a long term basis, and aim to partner organisations to coordinate regular community outreach programmes for beneficiaries.
