Greater accountability, transparency and fewer restrictions in the charity sector, has empowered Singapore to establish itself as an important regional philanthropic hub. Terry Alan Farris surveys the new philanthropic landscape.
Philanthropy or the culture of giving is not a new phenomenon, especially in Asia. The culture of giving inherent in Asian culture and tradition has slowly evolved over the years. In the West, philanthropy has been well established due to the efforts of organisations and individuals who engage in altruistic efforts to improve human welfare. There altruistic efforts have been much talked about and publicised.
