Rajah & Tann is also committed to reaching out to the less fortunate at the ground level, contributing our time and energy over and beyond monetary donations. As part of the firm's commitment to reach out to the less fortunate beyond monetary donations, we actively engage in charitable activities and social projects that contribute to worthy causes throughout the year.

This provides opportunities for members of the Rajah & Tann family to contribute in a personal and meaningful way. Lawyers and staff alike plan and take part in these activities, providing a hands-on contribution to the chosen cause.

We look forward to bringing Rajah & Tann's personal brand of passion and care to even more of those in need.

Social Projects and Community Outreach Activities

Recently, the firm successfully participated in a myriad of community outreach activities, including:

  • Singapore Academy of Law's CJ Cup

Rajah & Tann’s football team took part in the SAL’s CJ Cup 2023. Together, the legal profession raised more than S$165,000 for the SAL-YRF STAR (Skills Training Assistance to Restart) Bursary, which funds the education of financially disadvantaged ex-offenders.

  • Distribution of Essentials and Food Packs with A Packet of Rice and Fei Yue

Our volunteers came together to distribute essentials and lunch packs to over 200 seniors living in rental flats in Bukit Merah in April 2023, as well as food packs and grocery vouchers in Chua Chu Kang in May 2023. They also engaged with the seniors and families to understand their needs for further follow-up by social services.

  • Community Chest's 40th Anniversary Event: The Seeds of Sustainable Philanthropy

Our Rajah & Tann Partners, Rebecca Chew and Lee Weilin, represented the firm to plant an Ardisia elliptica tree under the Plant-A-Tree programme in April 2023. Every tree planted contributes to the OneMillionTrees Movement, which aims to plant one million more trees across Singapore over ten years till 2030, moving us closer to realising our vision of becoming a City in Nature, a key pillar of the SG Green Plan. R&T supported this initiative as a bronze partner.

  • Building Resilience for Seniors in Isolation in Collaboration with the Singapore Red Cross

We sponsored a programme to befriend more than 50 elderly folks living alone in public housing, in partnership with the Singapore Red Cross. This was carried out through a fun-filled event in June 2023 included ice-breaking games, competitions in karaoke singing and crafts, lunch and lucky draws that brought cheers to both the seniors and volunteers.  Apart from our staff and lawyers, we also invited the legal team from Citibank NA to join us in this meaningful event in the hope that we can further enhance our collective contribution to the larger community.

  • Coastal Clean Up

In our bid to contribute what little we can to a heathy environment and to protect our marine ecosystems, Rajah & Tann volunteers came together for a coastal clean-up in July 2023 at Yishun Dam in Singapore. The result was a 123 kg load of debris gathered and a great deal more awareness of responsible practices in conservation efforts.

  • YMCA Special Needs Inclusive Challenge

We sponsored the YMCA Special Needs Inclusive Challenge for the second year. The Challenge aims to encourage youths with special needs to overcome physical and mental hurdles. The programme consisted a launch event, weekly hikes taking place between May to Aug 2023 involving R&T volunteers and special needs ambassadors from YMCA, and culminating in R&T’s representative scaling Mt Fuji's summit with a team of YMCA ambassadors in August 2023.

  • Children's Movie Night with Singapore Children's Society

In September 2023, we hosted more than 50 beneficiaries of the Singapore Children’s Society’s Yishun Family Service Centre for a movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.

  • Support Sufferers of Parkinson’s Disease and Dementia

We sponsored and partnered with the National Neuroscience Institute to organise a party in November 2023 for close to 100 Parkinson’s disease and dementia patients and their caregivers. With activities such as mass hula dance, playing bingo, balloon sculpting, candle workshop, our volunteers aim to bring uplift the spirits of the beneficiaries.
