The work of our Centre would not be possible without the commitment and generous support of:


Mr Keith Chua founded the Mrs Lee Choon Guan Trust Fund in honour of his late great-grandmother, Mrs Lee Choon Guan. Mrs Lee Choon Guan founded the Chinese Ladies' Association in 1915 and was the first president. In 1918, she became the first Chinese woman to be awarded the Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in recognition of her charitable works. She also focused on education for women and girls, which inspired Mr Chua to develop the earlier Asia Centre for Social Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy at the National University of Singapore (NUS) Business School in 2009. The Centre was later renamed Asia Centre for Social Entrepreneurship and Philanthropy, or ACSEP, in 2011.

In setting up the new Centre for Computing for Social Good & Philanthropy at the NUS School of Computing, Mr Chua believes in the potential of technology and digitalisation to advance social good and address community concerns such as bridging the digital divide as well as grooming future IT leaders who are motivated to make a positive change.

Mr Chua was also instrumental in setting up the Nehemiah Foundation to raise awareness of mental illness in Singapore and overseas.
