There are many grants and assistances available for elite sportspersons in Singapore. But the journey to be an elite sportsperson is an arduous one. Help, guidance and encouragement are required each step of the way for such sportspersons, but these may be in short supply  – especially if you are young and from a disadvantaged family. Harsh realities of life, force many such amateur sportspersons to give up on their dreams of achieving sports excellence.

“My years as a sprinter was always filled with challenges, especially from a financial perspective. I was lucky that I had people around me like Uncle Peng Siong and Jose who were always around to provide help. It is important to give our young needy children a helping hand when they need it most, and it is our hope that become our national champions of the future.” – U K Shyam, Singapore’s 100m record holder and Board Director of the Foundation

Chiam See Tong Sports Foundation hopes to keep the flames of such individuals alive – hence our tagline, “WE BELIEVE IN YOU!

We hope to roll out programmes and bursaries to benefit at least 100 sportspersons, in our first year.

Sundramoorthy, a 19-year-old youth who aspires to be a national footballer one day , is one such beneficiary of the Chiam See Tong Sports Foundation. He used to dream about owning his own football boots instead of having to always borrow a pair from his friends to play the sport. The Foundation helped fulfill his dream at our launch.


“For people like us who don’t have much funds to buy equipment, such things give us the motivation to carry on and chase our dreams. “Every footballer dreams of turning professional, and hopefully these boots will be the start of my dream to live up to my namesake (former national player V Sundramoorthy).” – Sundramoorthy

We invite you to partner us to keep such young athletes’ dreams alive!

Chiam Champion of Sports


Opposition MP Chiam See Tong sparred with the Government on an untypical topic – getting a team ready for the next (1992) Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.

He challenged a reply from Minister of State (Community Development and Education) Dr Seet Ai Mee. She said Singapore would go through the “usual preparation”.

“The usual preparation is not good enough for me,” rebutted Mr Chiam.

Dr Seet parried his blow. She noted that Singapore was too small to produce many Olympic medallists.

“No excuse, No excuse!” shot back Mr Chiam.

Jose Raymond – Vice-Chairman


Jose Raymond

Deputy Chairman, Chiam See Tong Sports Foundation


Jose Raymond’s love affair with sports began when he was barely three years old when his father brought him to watch a Malaysia Cup match at the Kallang National Stadium. While he did not make it as a professional footballer or athlete of any sort, he did the next best thing – write about athletes, and the issues surrounding sports in Singapore as a journalist. He spent 11 years as a journalist in the Straits Times and Mediacorp and also served in multiple appointments while at Singapore Sports Council (currently Sport Singapore), Singapore government agency for sports promotion and development. He also served as Chief Executive Officer of the Singapore Environment Council, and was a Senior Director of Communications at the Singapore Sports Hub. He was elected as Vice-President (Finance) of the Singapore Swimming Association in June 2014 and is currently serving his second term in office.

“Sports is important to any young nation, and especially ours, since we are a diverse and multi-racial society. It is the one element which can bring a people from all walks of life  together, to commiserate in times of defeat and to cheer together in victory. It is our hope and aim through the Chiam See Tong Sports Foundation that we provide support to as many needy children as possible, to help them develop, so they can be the future heroes of Singapore whom we cheer for.”

Jose is currently Managing Director of SPIN, a communications agency and Vice-President (Finance) of the Singapore Swimming Association. He holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Murdoch University in Perth and is a Master’s in Public Administration candidate at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore.

Influenced by her father, Chiam See Tong, Camilla’s passion for sports began at the tender age of 10-months when she was taught by him to “doggy paddle” and tread water. Since then, she has taken part in school swim meets, a biathlon, running events and completed a 10-km open sea swim in 4 hours. Other father-daughter sports related bonding sessions throughout the years included badminton, cycling, ball games, wrestling and long walks.

“My father always believed in using sports as a force for good. He held the tenet that a person’s true character is reflected and on full display when playing sports, whether on a recreational or competitive level,” said Camilla. “Good sportsmanship, encompassing discipline, perseverance, integrity and compassion, are the cornerstones of any successful athlete and a reflection of one’s values in life. Through the Chiam See Tong Sports Foundation, we intend to provide youths in need accessibility to various sporting activities and in doing so, inspire them to discover their joy and passion while building strong life skills through sports.”

Camilla is currently vice president, PR & Communications, Asia Pacific, at Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group and a member of the company’s Asia Pacific Executive Committee. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism from Pepperdine University in Malibu, California
