ST: Why is it important to nurture a tradition of giving in the family and ensure that this legacy is handed down across generational lines?
SG: When it comes to nurturing a tradition of philanthropy, I believe the objective is NOT to gain personal recognition from the public or society. Philanthropic activities should define the family as a unit, and the values it stands for and holds close to its heart. The objective is to leave a legacy for succeeding generations to be reminded about where the family came from, and to continue nurturing the values that this family has come to treasure.
Giving can help to build an inclusive, flourishing and caring society, as well as to foster a stronger sense of belonging.
We can Alll do our part to give back to the society in various ways, be it through - outright Donations - or by engaging in Charity Work (有钱出钱，有力出力).
