As one of the signature projects under NUSCSC, Grant A Wish (GAW) was initiated in 2003 and has been successful in granting the wishes of beneficiaries for 16 consecutive years. This project is made possible through the help of our own NUS population as well as the general public's’ kind generosities. Each year, GAW targets a different beneficiary group. Some of them include low-income children and children with chronic illnesses.
In its latest iteration, GAW XVII reached out to the Brain Tumour Society, Genesis School for Special Education, Fei Yue Community Services and AMK Family Service Centre.

Grant A Wish XVI
Entering its 16th year, Grant A Wish XVI – Under The Sea, has expanded to include all three of CSC's main beneficiary groups. Our theme is "Under The Sea” as we hope to raise awareness for the aquatic environment. We hope that our beneficiaries have learnt to appreciate nature and enjoyed themselves, and that volunteers engaged in meaningful interactions and continue volunteering with CSC.

First Phase: Wish Collection
During the first phase of Wish Collection, volunteers get to interact with our beneficiaries and assist in collecting their wishes.
Second Phase: Wish Adoption
During the second phase of Wish Adoption, where the wishes of our beneficiaries are put up for adoption during the internal drive held in NUS. The drives were a success with a 100% adoption rate, so as to Grant-A-Wish!
Last Phase: Wish Party
In the last main phase of GAW, the Wish Party, volunteers, donors, and beneficiaries gather together for a day of fun and games. The highlight of the party would be the beneficiaries receiving their presents from the wishes granted by our kind donors.
