Temasek is a global investment company headquartered in Singapore. Temasek supports philanthropic programmes that focus on building people, building communities, building capabilities and rebuilding lives. Temasek has established more than 23 endowments since its inception, for community, philanthropic and public good causes, as part of its support for the wider communities in Singapore, Asia and beyond. Since 2004, Temasek has been setting aside part of its net returns above its risk-adjusted cost of capital for community contributions.
In 2007, Temasek established Temasek Trust to provide financial oversight and governance of Temasek’s endowment gifts. The Trust oversees the financial management and sustainable disbursements of Temasek’s endowment gifts to our beneficiaries, based on prudent sustainability and sound governance.
