Nirvana Cares

Nirvana Cares is founded to uphold the founding principles of Nirvana Memorial Garden at all times. We thrive on the ideals of a ‘Personalized Approach’ and the ‘Utmost Caring Spirit’. We treat filial piety earnestly, spread our caring and sharing gestures to make life more meaningful, reach out to the community with our hearts through our charitable and educational efforts, and promote spiritual health for a better world.

Nirvana Memorial Garden staff and volunteers actively contribute their time and effort to support social service organizations in delivering their programs and initiatives. Beyond just giving donations, Nirvana volunteers also bring smiles to society’s disadvantaged.

Community Partners

Grief Matters

Grief Matters, started in February 2019, is Montfort Care’s newest initiative to rally the community to recognise grief and offer bereavement support. They aim to promote bereaved-friendly practices in the community, workplaces and schools. In addition, they offer personalised care to the bereaved.

Nirvana’s adopted charity in bid to raise awareness on grief management and recovery.

President's Challenge

President’s Challenge is a movement supported by the kindness and generosity of people from all walks of life, regardless of culture, religion or family background, to help those less fortunate. It is the President’s call to the nation to do their part to build a more caring and inclusive society.

Nirvana Memorial Garden is a consistent contributor to President’s Challenge, receiving Appreciation Award at the President’s Challenge Appreciation Night, hosted by the President at the Istana in 2015 and 2016.

Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital

Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital (KWSH), a century-old charitable healthcare organisation and Institution of Public Character, is committed to looking after the sick and needy. In the last century, it has continued the strong tradition of community service, having cared for many generations of Singaporeans. It is now one of the most established providers in the intermediate and long-term care (ILTC) sector. To cope with the rapidly ageing population, KWSH’s redevelopment will transform it into an integrated nursing home and community hub, with its healthcare services reaching out to both inpatients and the community.

Nirvana Memorial Garden has been an active donor and sponsor to Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital events for their elderly beneficiaries and to ease the financial burdens of the hospital and patients alike.

Company of Good

The Company of Good programme was launched in 2016 to bring corporate giving to the next level. It was developed by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC), in partnership with the Singapore Business Federation Foundation (SBFF), supported by the Ministry of Culture, Community & Youth (MCCY), and in support of Singapore Cares (SG Cares). The objective was to empower companies to give back in ways that benefit both their business and the community.

Nirvana Memorial Garden is part of Company of Good network of over 1,300 companies. This network has enabled us to learn from one another, form partnerships and collaborate on CSR projects together. We are also a member of the Company of Good Fellowship where corporate fellows share best practices and identify opportunities to work together for the common goal of driving more holistic and impactful corporate giving.

National Kidney Foundation

The National Kidney Foundation Singapore is a non-profit health organisation in Singapore. Its mission is to render services to kidney patients, encourage and promote renal research, as well as to carry out public education programs on kidney diseases.

Nirvana Memorial Garden actively invites and promotes volunteerism through its social responsibility channel – Nirvana Cares, where volunteers engage in voluntary work in giving back to society by doing routine visits to the community dialysis centres in a bid to bring happiness and care through various fun and games. In collaboration with NKF, we have organised events such as educational outings, Getai shows, festive celebration movie fest, etc., for beneficiaries and families from various dialysis centres. In addition, Nirvana also made regular contributions to NKF’s “Grains of Hope’ Programme.

Singapore Associations of the Visually Handicapped

The Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped (SAVH) is the national voluntary welfare organization that serves and provides comprehensive rehabilitation services to the visually impaired. SAVH serves Singapore citizens and permanent residents of all age groups who must be certified with low vision (partial sight) or blind by an eye specialist or ophthalmologist. This includes people who are born blind as well as those who have lost their vision through accidents, illnesses or ageing. SAVH has over 3,000 registered clients ranging from infants to the elderly and has been providing these clients with eye care, rehabilitation, training, counselling, jobs and a place to belong to.

Nirvana Memorial Garden has generously supported and donated to the Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped events to ease the financial burdens of their beneficiaries.

Community Chest

The fundraising arm of the government agency, National Council of Social Service, the Community Chest raises funds for the nation’s various charities. These funds are used to help children with special needs, adults with disabilities, relationships of families and the elderly.

Nirvana Memorial Garden consistently contributes to Community Chest, having been awarded the Corporate Bronze Award at the Community Chest Awards 2017.

Shan You

Shan You is a social service agency founded in 1995 to provide professional counselling and social care services based on the guiding values of compassion, mindfulness, morality, and wisdom. Their services are available to all in the community, regardless of race, religion and ability to pay.

Nirvana’s adopted charity cause for The Elephant in Our Community is a signature public education campaign on mental health issues. The metaphor of an ‘elephant in the room’ refers to an obvious problem that people do not want to talk about. Similarly, although mental health issues are prevalent in our community, talking about them is often shunned and avoided.

Adult Disability Home

Singapore’s first-ever autism-focused residence in Sengkang for adults with intellectual disabilities to help ease the worries of their ageing parents. The home is co-developed by the Ministry of Social and Family Development and the non-profit organisation St Andrew’s Autism Centre (SAAC).

Nirvana Memorial Garden has supported and donated generously to the Adult Disability Home, enabling and empowering social service users to lead fulfilling lives.
