About Campaign

At Microsoft, we are passionate about giving to address critical issues facing our local communities. This is part of our culture and one more way we live our mission to empower every person and every organisation on the planet, to achieve more.

This year in Singapore, during the Give Week campaign, we are partnering with non-profit organisations whose mission is to enhance the lives of persons with disabilities. We will support Special Olympics Singapore through President's Challenge, for them to realise their digital transformation towards a modern non-profit.

Microsoft employees will be invited to exchange skills by playing sports with Special Olympics' athletes in a unified way and giving back by moderating a coding class, a modern workplace training and a mapathon to unlock the Redhill area for the visually impaired inhabitants.

About the Charity

The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for beneficiaries selected every year by the President's Office. It is a call to all Singaporeans in doing their part in building a more caring and inclusive society. Initiated in 2000 by former President S R Nathan, the Challenge represents the coming together of people from all walks of life, to help the less fortunate. In 2012, under the leadership of former President Tony Tan Keng Yam, the Challenge was expanded to go beyond fundraising by including volunteerism and social entrepreneurship. In 2018, President Halimah Yacob announced a $10 million fund (Empowering For Life Fund) which will empower vulnerable groups through skills upgrading, capacity-building and employment. Visit http://www.pc.org.sg/WhoWeSupport to find out about the benefiting organisations supported by President's Challenge this year. 100% of the donations received go towards the beneficiaries we support.
