AmCham Cares

AmCham CARES recognizes AmCham member companies in Singapore that have demonstrated a strong understanding of the link between responsible business operations and positive societal impact, and that conduct business in a way that creates both long-term economic and social value for Singapore. The program is a platform to benchmark, and share best practices, as well as encourage member companies to improve their current corporate social responsibility programs.

2019 AmCham CARES Awards Ceremony

We were honored to host Her Excellency Mdm Halimah Yacob, President of Singapore as the guest-of-honor to recognize the 2019 AmCham CARES Awards recipients. The awards ceremony was part of our 46th Annual General Meeting on April 26th. To learn more about the Award Ceremony, please see press coverage here.

The awards submissions survey are tabulated by the AmCham Social Impact Taskforce. In 2019, CSR programs were assessed on four main factors – communications, measurement, strategy, and sustainability. If you would like to explore ways that your company can participate next year, please contact Tabitha Goh.

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.

2019 AmCham CARES Awards

In 2019, 64 companies were recognized and honored at the AmCham 46th Annual General Meeting on April 26, 2019. The award was presented by Her Excellency Mdm Halimah Yacob, President of the Republic of Singapore. To view the full list of 2019 AmCham CARES recipients and som their CSR stories, click here.

AmCham CARES
AmCham Singapore aims to raise awareness of corporate social responsibility (CSR) among members as one of the most active business chambers in Singapore. The AmCham CARES program recognizes member companies in Singapore that have demonstrated a strong understanding of the link between responsible business operations and positive societal impact, and that conduct business in a way that creates both long-term economic and social value for Singapore.

A platform to benchmark and share best practices, AmCham CARES encourages member companies to improve their current CSR programs. These programs are assessed on four main factors – communications, measurement, strategy, and sustainability.

In recent years, we were honored to host Mdm Halimah Yacob, President of the Republic of Singapore, and Minister Ong Ye Kung, Ministry of Health, as the guests-of-honor to recognize the AmCham CARES Awards recipients during our Annual General Meeting. To date, we have awarded over 200 certificates of recognition to AmCham member companies for their outstanding corporate citizenship.

Southwest Community Development Council,
Charity Partner (2019-2021)
Adopt @ South West
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.

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 2019, AmCham partnered with South West Community Development Council to prepare and distribute care packages consisting of basic necessities to over 500 vulnerable households in Bukit Gombak, as part of the Adopt @ South West program.
SMU Scholarship Fund
AMCHAM SMU 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 (SMU) which was modelled after the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. AmCham member companies provided a gift of $400,000 to SMU which 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 the university. From 2004 - 2018, the income earned on the principal gift has provided a full scholarship for students to attend SMU.

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.
