Info

The Ngee Ann Kongsi (Chinese: 義安公司) is a charitable foundation located in Singapore and governed by the Ngee Ann Kongsi Ordinance of 1933. It is one of many Overseas Chinese Kongsi, or clan associations, that were set up by immigrants from China in the late 19th century.
The foundation's name, Ngee Ann, is the old name for Chaozhou, which may also be transliterated as Teochew. The Teochew people reside within the province of Guangdong, China, sharing the province with other communities such as the Cantonese and Hakka people.
The Ngee Ann Kongsi was founded in 1845 by Seah Eu Chin (佘有进) to look after the religious and humanitarian needs of Teochew immigrants in Singapore. It was set up within Yueh Hai Ching Temple (粤海清), a national monument of Singapore. Now a non-profit organization, Ngee Ann Kongsi contributes to Singaporean society through educational and other charitable projects.
The Ngee Ann Kongsi also provides a tertiary bursary and scholarship towards deserving Teochew students. Students that display good academic results, leadership skills and strong co-curricular records are eligible for the scholarship, while students with good academic results and have financial needs can apply to the Kongsi for bursary.
