The fund was developed to encourage more people to play and enjoy competitive sport, especially for promising athletes who are not supported by the High Performance Sports system.

"At Singapore Sport Institute, we look at every possibility to strengthen and provide all aspiring athletes with the competitive edge they need to achieve their dreams. However, this requires the collaborative effort of every member of our society to contribute as One Team Singapore. We are pleased that Temasek Foundation has stepped up to join us in enabling athletes to realise their full potential and hope that the Temasek Foundation Inspire Fund will encourage more athletes to commit to train, compete at their best, and inspire our community."

Mr Toh Boon Yi
Singapore Sport Institute
"The Temasek Foundation Inspire Fund extends support to athletes who require financial backing and we would like to encourage youth athletes to apply for this fund. With NYSI’s focus on the development of youth athletes in high performance sports, we look forward to supporting more youth athletes in their sporting aspirations to further build the Singapore youth sports ecosystem."

Dr Su Chun Wei
National Youth Sports Institute
"Aspiring athletes need a community of support to grow. It is so heartening to see passion driven, self-funded athletes go on to represent Singapore in international competitions. They come from different sporting disciplines – from talented youths in emerging sports such as dodgeball, indoor skydiving and tchoukball, to masters athletes. The Temasek Foundation Inspire Fund will provide support for these athletes to nurture their aspirations. We hope this will inspire and empower others to follow."
