“The Corporate Citizen Foundation (CCF) is an interesting story with a unique plot and proposition – one which goes beyond the traditional CSR or corporate philanthropy initiatives. It adopts an alliance-driven approach, to proactively, collectively and personally address real humanitarian issues in the region.”Ong Ye Kung, Minister for Education and Senior Minister of State for Defence
“Beyond governments and NGOs, corporations can make important contributions in disaster response. Our corporate sector has been and still is an important source of donations. But our companies are also increasingly a source of specialised resources and skills, organisational capacity and rich contacts.
Disasters are a fact of life in the region, like they are globally. CCF pulls together a good team of companies with complementary strengths and resources to play this role.”Tharman Shanmugaratnam, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for Finance and Chairman of the International Monetary and Financial Committee of the IMF
“The foundation’s mission is to improve capacity and resilience of vulnerable regional communities through collective and constructive corporate collaborations.”Chairman Lim Choo Leng, CCF

“CCF is a platform for private corporations to exercise our corporate citizenry more proactively, constructively and collectively. In short – to do good, better, together.”Chairman Lim Choo Leng, CCF
