The Tan Chin Tuan Foundation (TCTF) was established on 10 April 1976 by the late banker and philanthropist Tan Sri (Dr) Tan Chin Tuan with the objective of sharing with society the rewards of a highly illustrious career. He did so by providing assistance to the deserving and services that help build a sustainable society both personally and through The Tan Chin Tuan Foundation.

The type of assistance provided reflects the founder's philosophy of how money should be utilised for social good.

Rather than focusing on any one segment of society, the Foundation attempts to support projects or causes that are viable, sustainable and well-managed with definable social outcomes, taking into consideration evolving social needs.
