Manchester Day of Action (MDOA) is our annual community volunteering project for alumni around the world. The year 2022 marks the University of Manchester (South East Asia) Centre's (UOMSEA's) 30th Anniversary. The alumni community's support has been key to our success over the past 30 years of working towards excellence.

To celebrate this significant milestone, UOMSEA has teamed up with the University of Manchester Alumni Association of Singapore and Manchester Business School Alumni Association of Singapore to organise a joint fundraising event titled 'UOMSEA Art & Bowling Charity Day 2022' to support the President's Challenge and to give back to society.

President's Challenge 2022 - Supporting Lower-Income Families
Many lives and livelihoods have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, especially the lower-income families, due to their vulnerability to economic conditions. It aims to empower lower-income families with skills and opportunities. Your generous donations will help these families emerge stronger from the pandemic and have a greater chance to achieve their goals of getting employment prospects and providing their children with educational opportunities.

100% of funds raised from this campaign will be donated to the President's Challenge.

Donations made through the UOMSEA Art & Bowling Charity Day 2022 are eligible for a 250% tax deduction.*
*Tax deduction is only applicable to donors who are currently residing in Singapore with a valid NRIC/FIN number.

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.


Fundraising can help to raise more and change more lives.
