Be Moved! The SGF needs your help
from our SGF Institutions!

National University of Singapore
Montfort Brothers of St. Gabriel
The religious congregation of the Montfort Brothers of St Gabriel is a Catholic organization which has been in Singapore since 1936. Since their arrival, seven institutions have been established, namely, Assumption English School, Assumption Pathway School, Boys’ Town, Montfort Junior School, Montfort Secondary School, St Gabriel’s Primary School and St Gabriel’s Secondary School. Initially, most of these institutions were set up to provide education to the poor and under privileged. Evolving with needs of society, these seven institutions today continue to cater to those whom the world rejects and also those who desire a good Catholic education. This is expressed mainly through the Montfort Education Charter (MEC).
Why is there a need for the SGF?
Owing to the decline in vocations to religious life, there are not enough brothers left to effectively run the schools. To continue the Brothers’ mission, the SGF was established in 2001 to continue the good work of the Brothers in Singapore. Amongst others, the SGF conducts induction courses to introduce the MEC to new staff of our institutions. The Foundation is managed by a Board of Governors consisting of both brothers and lay people.
In the MEC, we imbibe the spirit of our founder, St Louis Marie de Montfort, and put into practice Montfortian Education for the 21st Century. For example, we place the child at the center of our education mission, placing the best interests of the child before all else; we transform children to be spiritually inspired individuals who are just and respectful in all relationships; and we measure excellence by the child’s journey on attaining wisdom. In two of our institutions, we cater to children that are often overlooked by mainstream society – children-at-risk and those who have difficulty passing their PSLE.

Why are we appealing for donations?
To fully implement the Montfortian Education Charter in our institutions, we need to rely on our benefactors as most of the projects undertaken are not considered as standard activities funded by MOE.
We therefore appeal to your generosity, as a stakeholder of the SGF institutions, to help us reach our goal of raising $200,000 through this concert. All donors to the SGF will be entitled to 250% tax deduction (if applicable).
