Our preferred charities are The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund and The Business Times Budding Artists Fund. Over the last 10 years, Citi Singapore has committed over $2 million in support of SPMF and BT BAF to help build brighter futures for children from low income families.
We have various ongoing initiatives in support of the two charities:
Support of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund and The Business Times Budding Artists Fund
Citi encourages staff to donate S$0.10 for every drink obtained from the 45 drink dispensers located across Citi's offices.
Every month, an average of $8,000 was collected from the machines for this "drink and donate" drive, from 80,000 cups of coffee, tea and soft drinks drunk by staff every month. Over the past seven years, Citi has raised more than $700,000 through this simple yet powerful fund-raising model, which translates to more than 7 million cups of coffee, tea and soft drinks drunk by Citibankers!
Citi IT and Partners Charity Golf
Started since 2002, this charity golf tournament has been a highly successful annual fund raising event organised by volunteers in Citi's technology groups that has raised over S$2.8 million for various adopted charities to date. In 2011 and 2012, through the tremendous support of our partners, we raised a total of $1 million for Child Aid in support of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund and The Business Times Budding Artists Fund. The funds are raised through the generous donations of Citi's IT partners by the sponsorship of Citi-hosted golf flights.
