The Faith Family Fund
(For the Elderly)

Ms Faith Tan
Vice-Chairman & Donor of the Faith Family Fund

What inspired you to set up the Faith Family Fund?

I was inspired and guided by Dr. Peter Wong’s belief in caring for the community and his encouragement to join ACCF. After seeing his inaugural donation to the Legacy Fund, I was compelled to follow his example. The Legacy Fund is a formal and legitimate platform that provides much-needed support to those who require it. With the increasing number of immigrants and widening wealth disparities in the coming years, more people will need a helping hand. I wholeheartedly believe in promoting social harmony, which is why I didn’t hesitate to become a donor myself.

 

What legacy do you hope to leave to this world? Or how do you want your donation to make a difference in your community?

My primary intention and hope for the donation is to assist the elderly. As my own parents are aging, I want to ensure that elderly people receive the necessary support. Many communities provide activities and services for the elderly, and they would certainly appreciate additional donations. I am not just focused on the Chinese communities, but also on other communities such as Arab, Indian, and Nepalese elderly communities, which require more attention and care. I genuinely hope that all elderly migrants who come here can live comfortably.

 

Would you recommend the Legacy Fund to your friends and family?

I would certainly recommend the Legacy Fund, with the hope that Dr. Wong’s vision for establishing it will endure in the future. Many Australians donate to various charitable organizations, and I believe that this platform is not solely for Chinese Australians. Whenever the community is in need, ACCF is there to provide assistance. Additionally, I hope that the Legacy Fund can help support medical research.
