The Kongsi contributes 75% of its yearly surplus to the Ngee Ann polytechnic; and to date, it has donated about $100 million to the polytechnic.
But a change in the ordinance in 2007, parliament has approved and decreed that the Kongsi will henceforth reduce the donation to 25% of the yearly surplus, while the remaining amount be donated to other educational institutions in Singapore.
