The Ngee Ann Kongsi is a foundation that is actively involved in educational, cultural and welfare activities in Singapore.

Founded in 1845 to look after the religious and welfare needs of Teochew immigrants in Singapore, The Ngee Ann Kongsi has evolved to become a significant contributor towards the enrichment of Singapore society. Its landmark buildings, premier educational institutions and cultural initiatives have touched many generations of Singaporeans.

Today, The Ngee Ann Kongsi is managed by a council elected from amongst its members. It is based in the stately Teochew Building on Tank Road, which also houses the Ngee Ann Cultural Centre and Ngee Ann Kongsi Heritage Hall as well as the Ngee Ann-Adelaide Education Centre. With its continuing efforts and services in the educational, cultural, religious, welfare and medical arenas, the Kongsi tries to cater to the spectrum of the Teochew community's needs.
