Objectives of AmCham CARES Award
AmCham CARES is not a competition. It requires companies to meet certain criteria with their pre-existing CSR programs. AmCham CARES is a great way to benchmark, share best practices, and look at ways to improve companies’ current CSR programs. The aims of the AmCham CARES Awards are to:
Raises awareness of CSR and corporate citizenship among AmCham members;
Recognizes firms with best practice programs;
Gathers information about best practices to share with all AmCham members; and
Demonstrates continued AmCham leadership among chambers in Singapore.

In 2019, 64 companies were recognized and honored at the AmCham 46th Annual General Meeting on April 26, 2019.

Charity Partner (2019-2021)
In November 2018, the AmCham Board of Governors chose the South West Community Development Council as our next local charity partner. The South West CDC is known for its efforts to promote environmental sustainability and ownership towards a cleaner and greener home for future generations.
In 2018, AmCham together with SMU, launched the SMU Global Innovation Immersion Award (GIIA). Under this program, AmCham awards up to 6 scholarships annually to SMU students to participate in a summer internship under the Global Innovation Immersion program with a start-up in the San Francisco Bay Area or Boulder, Colorado. Students have the opportunity to participate in a 3-month overseas internship with high-growth innovative American companies, develop future-ready skills and expand their students’ global entrepreneurial network. After returning from their internships, students are invited to form meaningful business connections with AmCham leaders and member companies, and learn from industry leaders. AmCham hopes that this program will develop and groom Singapore’s next generation of business leaders who will continue to build economic ties with the American business community.
AmCham is continually adding to the endowment through honorariums that are given as a token of appreciation for the speakers at our events. These donations are made in their name.
