Donors & NP Fund

At Ngee Ann Polytechnic, we believe no student should be denied an education because of their financial constraints. In addition, we give due recognition to talented students to allow them to scale greater heights and achieve multiple peaks of success. All this is possible with the support of our philanthropic partners.

Donors & Supporters

The Ngee Ann Kongsi, a philanthropic foundation, donated $8.4m in September 2018.
