Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2020, 11:59 PM

The COVID-19 pandemic caused shutdowns across the world, with people experiencing drastic dips in income and financial stability, and some even losing their jobs overnight.

Together with YMCA of Singapore, Park Hotel Group (PHG) has established the Uplift Fund to support individuals who have lost their jobs or faced a personal income loss of at least 30% due to the COVID-19 crisis.

PHG is running a dollar-for-dollar matching campaign for donations made by our team members to support the Uplift Fund. This page is for PHG team members only and team members are encouraged to make their voluntary contributions through this page so that donations can be tracked and matched.

Priority is given to the following groups:
a) individuals from the Hospitality and Food and Beverages (F&B) sectors;
b) main caregivers with extended family and/or special needs family members as well as those with chronic health conditions; and
c) those who have not benefited from other COVID-19 national relief schemes.

Applicants will receive a one-time relief amount of between S$500 and S$1,000, with a potential renewal of S$500 after three months.

How can PHG team members help?
Any amount you choose to give is greatly appreciated. 100% of your donation goes into the Uplift Fund and every dollar will be matched by Park Hotel Group.

All donations of S$50 and above are eligible for 250% tax deduction.
