This year, the People's Association (PA) will be pledging $250,000 to the President's Challenge 2021. In support of President's Challenge 2021 and in commemoration of the 45th anniversary of Community Sports Clubs (CSCs), PA is organising a virtual sports event to encourage everyone to keep active while making a direct donation through Giving.SG. Through this sports event, PA hopes to raise an additional $50,000 for the beneficiaries of President's Challenge 2021, bringing the total amount to $300,000.

PA has been a steadfast supporter of the President's Challenge since its inception in 2001. Over the years, PA has helped to raise almost $6 million dollars to help President's Challenge beneficiaries.

About the Charity

The President's Challenge is an annual community outreach and fundraising campaign for charities 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.
