(All funds raised will go to Community Chest before they are disbursed to the Social Service Agency (SSA) mentioned below after consideration of the programme objectives and financial needs of the SSA.*)
NUS Business Flag is one of the 5 Freshman Orientation Projects organised by NUS Business Club, in conjunction with NUS Students' Union (NUSSU). Our mission is to give back to the community through various channels such as community engagement events, fundraising events and corporate donations.
This summer, we will be holding a total of 12 different events across 4 centres under Care Community Services Society (CCSS). We have 6 different events for CareKids and CareElderly each, of which both support low-income and/or single-parent families. The events include arts and crafts sessions, mini carnivals, escape hunts and more!
Since the beginning of NUS Business Flag, we have managed to raise significant amounts of donations with the help of our donors, and it is this meaningful legacy that we seek to uphold and surpass. In 2019, we managed to raise over half the total cheque of $336,900 raised by NUS. Last year, we managed to raise over $70,000 during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. Through our continuous efforts, we wish to leave behind the greatest impact we can on our beneficiaries. With the help of your generosity in this trying time, we hope to raise a total of $30,000 for those who need them most now.
