Our Campaign Storyends 27 Nov 2020, 11:59 PM
On 11 August 2020, we will launch the NJCHearts fundraising Campaign to support the President's Challenge. This campaign will end on 27 Nov 2020.
Enterprising student leaders from various CCAs have worked together so that the CCAs will have the opportunity to showcase student talent and simultaneously raise funds for the President's Challenge. All of us can look forward to dynamic displays from our performing arts groups, including virtual performances. In addition, parent participation has been designed in the form of online challenges.
Specifically, fund raising will be in the form of:
1. Online charity challenge and appeal for donations;
2. Collaboration with corporations for pledges of donations when students complete a predetermined challenge; and
3. Posting digital performances to appeal for donations.
Check out our College's web page or NJC's official social media platforms for weekly updates and new video releases every week from 11 Aug to 27 Nov 2020. Your support will go a long way in lifting spirits, strengthening morale and improving lives!

About The Charity
The President's Challenge started in 2000 and represents a coming together of people from all walks of life, under the President's patronage, to help those who are less fortunate. It is the President's call to all Singaporeans to do their part to build a more caring and cohesive society.
While fundraising continues to be at the heart of President's Challenge, the campaign has gone beyond the giving of money to the giving of time, skills and talent for the less fortunate. President now seeks to play a bigger role in nurturing stronger communities by expanding support for programmes beyond the social service sector and to encourage the young and elderly population to be involved in community work.
Under the leadership of President Halimah Yacob, President's Challenge is looking into more customised and upstream support to help the most vulnerable change their circumstances through skills upgrading, capacity building and empowerment.
