We call on businesses to step up and give back to the community. We have a long-standing tradition of successful business leaders stepping forward to meet the social needs of the community. From before Singapore’s independence, with pioneers like Hajjah Fatimah, Govindasamy Pillai, and Tan Tock Seng, right through to the COVID-19 pandemic. Businesses today should continue building on this.
- We welcome the contributions of businesses and the wider community to uplift lower-income families. This is why we have brought in corporates such as DBS Bank Limited and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited to invest their time and resources in ComLink programmes, including new schemes in the works.
- Beyond monetary contributions, businesses can also provide internship and career opportunities to uplift those from less privileged backgrounds, or leverage their corporate capabilities to make a difference in the community.
- The National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre has rolled out its new Company of Good strategy to support and recognise businesses in their journey to contribute more to society.
- Singapore Business Federation has also established an Environment, Social and Governance Coordination Office to help businesses develop and deepen their journey of giving back to society.
