Published on May 20, 2014 12:18 PM

Donate $1,000 over a year and you will be considered a philanthropist, under a fundraising initiative launched by the Singapore Children's Society on Tuesday.

The 1,000 Philanthropists (1000P) programme aims to get individuals to make the annual donation for a period of one, three or five years. The charity hopes to have at least 1,000 individuals on the programme, and raise $3 million each year.

More than 130 philanthropists have joined the programme since its soft launch in February, donating about $400,000 to date.
