Tun Tan Cheng Lock Centre

About the DONOR

 

My father Tun Tan Cheng Lock, who was proud of his Peranakan roots, always believed in knowledge and education and the ideals of a multiracial, multicultural nation, and my contribution to this exciting heritage project is dedicated to his memory.
Ms Agnes Tan

 

Ms Tan’s gift of S$1.5m to NUS in 2004 for the purchase and restoration of the two townhouses was followed by another generous gift of S$4 million to the University for the Baba House in 2005. Together, these houses will play an important role in conserving the distinctive Peranakan heritage, in tribute to the late Tun Tan Cheng Lock, a highly-respected Peranakan community leader.
