At RHTLaw Taylor Wessing, we believe that when we do well, we must do good. Having a foundation allows us to carry out our CSR activities in a more focused, sustainable and meaningful manner. Set up in 2015, our RHT Rajan Menon Foundation is a Singapore-registered charity as well as a grant-making philanthropic organisation approved by IRAS. The vision of the Foundation is to establish and encourage a philanthropic culture of giving back to the community among the corporate and legal fraternity. The Foundation supports four main causes – education, disadvantaged groups, environment and the arts. At its fourth annual charity golf event held in May 2018, the Foundation raised more than S$500,000 for its beneficiaries. In addition to its Successful Ageing Project (an ongoing initiative on eldercare), the Foundation is also embarking on a new initiative on sustainability, called Greening ASEAN: Initiatives & Leadership.
