The arts encapsulates the soul of our heritage. It allows bridges to be built between cultures and promotes a vibrant social community. The Foundation is proud to support National Gallery Singapore as one of our beneficiaries.
ARHTPHIL is a project initiated by RHTLaw to unite Art and Philanthropy into a cohesive, compelling and credible proposition.
ARHTPHIL will benefit the following stakeholders:
In summary, ARHTPhil will facilitate more collectors to monetise their art and, as a result, more of such works to be exhibited for public enjoyment.
ARHTPhil will achieve this by encouraging banks to custodise art received as collateral with a museum instead of locking it up in a vault. This means that museums will act as custodians. RHTLaw Asia is engaging insurers to provide innovative risk management solutions to enhance the banks’ collateral and to mitigate risks.
Through its annual charity golf events from 2015 to 2023, the Foundation has helped raised awareness of golf as a recreation and sport amongst the corporate community. The Foundation is proud to be the Gold Flight Sponsor for the Singapore Golf Association’s Fundraiser 2019 and Fundraiser 2020.
In addition, RHTLaw Asia LLP is currently the honorary legal counsel of the Singapore Golf Association.
We seek to improve the lives of the disadvantaged and vulnerable in Singapore through a meaningful and holistic approach which includes grants, volunteer work and outreach programmes. Some of the beneficiaries we have supported include Children’s Cancer Foundation, Red Cross Home for the Disabled, Singapore Red Cross, The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund, and TOUCH Young Arrows.
We believe that education is key in enabling our children to break out of generational poverty cycles and carve out promising futures for themselves. We support life-long learning through book prizes, scholarships, bursaries and collaborations with educational institutions such as National University of Singapore (NUS) and Singapore Management University (SMU) to celebrate the outstanding contributions of law students, in recognition of their achievements, and to encourage them to continue and inspire others. Our CSR education awards are structure can be found at www.onerht.foundation

We have taken a corporate pledge for a “No Shark Fin Dining Policy” and also encourage staff to reduce their carbon footprints in the office by promoting the 3Rs- reduce, reuse and recycle. We support charities such as Nature society in their various programmes on conservation and key initiatives around Climate Change, Forests, Responsible Seafood and Illegal Wildlife Trade.
