Corporate Community Day
Every year AmCham Singapore organizes Corporate Community Day (CCD) to build stronger ties with Singapore through local community work. CCD symbolizes the continued commitment of our members to the Singapore community. CCD focuses on cultivating local relationships, and promoting the spirit of volunteerism. Through this initiative, AmCham encourages our member companies and their employees to build stronger ties with the Singapore community. It demonstrates how when the corporate community comes together small acts, when added together, can make a big difference.

AMCHAM SINGAPORE’S WALK FOR RICE

In 2018, AmCham partnered with NTUC Fairprice and the South East Community Development Council, we organized the “Walk for Rice” and raised 22,000 bowls of rice for needy families. 515 of our members participated in this year’s CCD held at Bedok Reservoir Park.

PARTNERSHIP WITH U.S. EMBASSY

Since 2003, AmCham has partnered with the U.S. Embassy in celebrating our commitment to social development in Singapore.
Endowment Scholarship Fund
The AmCham endowment scholarship fund was established in March 2004 when the AmCham Board of Governors launched a year-long capital campaign to support the then-fairly new Singapore Management University which was modelled after the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. AmCham member companies provided a gift of $400,000 to SMU which then was matched by the Singapore government making the total endowment $800,000. Our endowment scholarship is a permanent fund that retains its value in perpetuity at SMU.

Since 2004, the income earned on the principal gift has provided a full scholarship for students to attend SMU. By 2016, the endowment fund has been used to support students to participate in internships in the U.S.

Every year, AmCham awards 6 scholarships to SMU students to participate in a summer internship with a start-up in the San Francisco Bay Area or Boulder, Colorado. The Global Innovation Immersion program is a 3-month overseas internship with High-Growth Innovative American companies. The internship aims to develop future-ready skills and emphasizes the cultivation of a Growth and Fail-Forward Mindset.

In addition to the endowment, as a token of appreciation for the speakers that speak at our events, we also make donations in their name for the scholarship fund at SMU.
Our Charity Partner
BUILDING PARTNERSHIPS WITH LOCAL COMMUNITY
Every three years, AmCham selects a local charity partner. Through this partnership, we work in partnership with our charity partner to achieve its objectives. AmCham members and staff work closely with the local charity partner to support key programs throughout the year.

SOUTH EAST COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT COUNCIL
In 2018, we partnered with the South East CDC on “Walk For Rice” and raised over 22,000 bowls of rice for needy families. The South East District is home to more than 500,000 residents.

2019-2021 CHARITY PARTNER
