Gift a Painting

When you donate to the Gift a Painting initiative, you are helping to bring the joys of art to the needy elderly living in nursing homes in Singapore. 

 

As a donor, you can leave your legacy by dedicating a painting in memory of your loved ones. 

 

What is Gift a Painting

 

Gift a Painting is an initiative to put paintings by Singapore artists into nursing homes in Singapore.

 

Needy elderly residents who stay in a nursing home have a tendency to suffer from loneliness, boredom, despair and isolation.  

 

Having good quality art in their living environment will hopefully ease some of these problems by brightening up their day and bringing cheer to their days. 

 

The gifted paintings will also be enjoyed by nursing staff, caregivers and all who work and visit the nursing home.

 

The Singapore artists who are supporting this meaningful initiative have contributed their paintings at a substantially discounted value.  

 

The paintings to be gifted have been carefully curated to suit the elderly, and they will be nicely framed before they are handed over to the nursing home. 

 

How to donate

 

Donors pick the painting you want to gift the home and get the painting at special rates.

 

In appreciation of your gift, your painting will be displayed with a note that you can personalize, either with the donor's name or in memory of your loved ones.
