Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Vision and Mission of the Foundation?
What are the Objectives of the Foundation?
Who owns the Foundation?
The CCF is an independent non-profit and non-governmental organisation incorporated as a company limited by guarantee. It has an independent Board of Directors providing strategic guidance and governance.
Who does CCF serve?
The CCF serves vulnerable communities in the Asian region. 70% of the world’s natural disasters occur in Asia, mostly along the coastal and rivers. The vicious cycle of the disaster and recovery phases have caused many of these communities to live below the poverty line, hence lacking the capacity for growth and resilience to mitigate the risk of damage.
As such, the CCF has identified coastal communities as its core beneficiary target, by putting in place a robust disaster management program/plan/mechanism, to help these communities out of the vicious cycle, and allow for sustainable development.
Why does CCF focus on regional beneficiaries?
Most corporations and their employees have engagements and affiliations across the region. Corporate citizenry transcends geographical boundaries, especially within a region where social and economic growth is susceptible to the rising effects of climate change.
How can I contribute?
Private corporations and individuals may contribute resources including cash, expertise, equipment and networks.
Does the role of CCF overlap with the works of other NGOs?
The CCF is a non-profit and non-governmental organisation (NGO). CCF’s unique value-proposition is its ability to harness and channel the strengths of the private sector’s resources towards vulnerable communities in Asia. With infinite needs for assistance across the Asian region, the CCF complements the other works carried out by government agencies, local communities and NGOs.
