Our Campaign Storyends 30 Jun 2022, 11:59 PM
As part of Citi's 17th Global Community Day (GCD), "Citi Supports ChildAid 2022 (Engage)" is a fundraising campaign organised by Engage to support ChildAid, a charity concert that raises funds for needy children served by The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (STSPMF) and The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BTBAF). STSPMF gives students from financially-strapped families a monthly allowance for school-related expenses such as their meals and transport fares while BABAF helps socially-disadvantaged youth who are artistically talented pursue their passions in the arts. Since 2002, Citihas raised S$6.7 million for the two Funds. In 2020, Citi raised close to S$400,000 for ChildAid despite the challenges posted by the unprecedented global pandemic. The campaign demonstrates our commitment in giving back to the community through philanthropy and volunteerism, and we hope to bring our friends and partners alongside as we seek to make a positive impact on our community. We invite you to join us in our giving journey - any contribution from you will go a long way for our beneficiaries. Citi's philanthropic and volunteerism efforts were recognized by the People's Association with the Partnership Excellence 2020 award, and by the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) as 2020's Champion of Good. Citi was also named the Champion of Good by NVPC in 2018 and was the sole recipient of the President's Award for Volunteerism & Philanthropy (Corporate, Large Enterprise).
