AmCham Singapore believes in giving back to the community and has been actively involved in various projects related to corporate social responsibility.
AmCham Endowment at SMU
AmCham has a long-standing relationship with SMU. The Chamber also established an endowment at the University to assist Singapore’s business leaders of tomorrow with building the credentials and qualifications they need to launch successful careers. The funds support the AmCham Entrepreneurial Immersion Award which enables select students to participate in a summer internship with a start-up in Silicon Valley.
Charity Partner of 2018
AmCham selects a charity or charity partner annually. Through this partnership, AmCham highlights the initiatives of the organization to its members and encourages its members to help the charity or charity partner achieve its objectives. AmCham members and staff help support key programs throughout the year.
This year, AmCham’s charity partner is the South East Community Development Council (SECDC). Spanning the scenic eastern coast of Singapore, the South East District comprises the Marine Parade Group Representative Constituency (GRC), East Coast GRC, Feng Shan Single Member Constituency (SMC), MacPherson SMC, and Mountbatten SMC; it is home to more than 500, 000 residents. The district includes some of the island’s most vibrant, historical, and beautiful neighborhoods, such as Geylang Serai, Joo Chiat, Bedok, and Marine Parade.
At the helm of the SECDC is Mayor Maliki Bin Osman, who firmly believes in the ‘ABCs of Community Bonding’ – Assisting the Needy, Bonding with the People and Connecting with the Community. As a social broker, SECDC works closely with its partners to support, facilitate, and empower community-initiated projects. Its doors are always open to proposals from schools, non-profit organizations, corporate companies, and individuals. It believes that everyone can make a difference. Read more here.
