Community Chest Awards 2022

The annual Community Chest Awards (CCA) honours organisations and individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the social service sector to care for communities in need.

At Community Chest Awards 2022, we recognise the efforts of our donors and partners over the last year to empower communities in need, despite the challenges they faced from the pandemic. We also celebrate communities that have shown resilience as they continue to strive towards their goals while supporting and caring for one another.

The unwavering support of our partners has enabled social service users we support to achieve their potential, and we will witness their abilities during their performance and participation at the Awards.

Diverse Abilities Dance Collective (DADC)

Diverse Abilities Dance Collective (DADC)

DADC is a community initiative to create a co-existing space for persons with disabilities and art-makers. The team develops dance techniques and skills related to employment in the arts, such as costume management, administration, and teaching at preschools.

At the Community Chest Awards 2022, five performers from DADC will present a dance performance, titled Confluence. The name of the performance signifies dancers of different abilities and backgrounds connecting over their passion for dance. Confluence also represents the resilience of its creators who had trained hard to become semi-professional dancers, and DADC’s dedication to helping others grow, shine and succeed.

“We appreciate the opportunity to share our story through dance with other performers who are showcasing resilience in their own ways. It takes effort to uplift communities, but it is worth it when people are empowered in a more caring and inclusive society.”
Mr Subastian Tan, Programme Leader, Diverse Abilities Dance Collective

D’Circulus, APSN Delta Senior School 

D’Circulus, APSN Delta Senior School

D’Circulus is a new co-curricular activity (CCA) at APSN Delta Senior School that was started in 2021. There, students with a passion for circus arts learn skills like diabolo, spinning plates, and juggling, on a safe and nurturing platform. Guided by Coach Edward from Circus in Motion, the CCA which consists of 13 members from 16 to 19 years old, aims to help students build self-confidence, resilience, and teamwork.

This year, the students were introduced many new tricks and performance acts, such as Juggling Clubs, to help them push beyond their potential. These will be put together as a special performance for the Community Chest Awards 2022.

“The quote, “Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, I’m possible!”, encapsulates the whole purpose of why APSN Delta Senior School started D’Circulus. We saw the resilience of our students, who have put in months of effort to master their skills for this performance. This is a special opportunity for them to showcase their abilities.”

Tan Bing Yao and Minah Binti Mohd

Tan Bing Yao and Minah Binti Mohd, Goodwill, Rehabilitation & Occupational Workshop (GROW), Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS)

The event token of the Community Chest Awards this year is a photo frame that features an artwork by artists from the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore’s (CPAS) Goodwill, Rehabilitation & Occupational Workshop (GROW). These photo frames were given to guests as a keepsake that reminds them of the support they have given to provide persons with disabilities the opportunity to pursue their talents and passion.

Living with spastic quadriplegia and hearing impairment is no obstacle for Bing Yao, who performs tasks independently and actively pursues his interest in art. Being non-verbal, Bing Yao expresses himself through bold artworks in rich colours. He created the art piece with 54-year-old Mdm Minah, who has cerebral palsy.

Bing Yao and Mdm Minah used a marbling art technique for this art piece, in which patterns are created by painting in water.

“We are grateful and delighted that our combined effort is being recognised and showcased as an event gift at the Community Chest Awards. Through this artwork, we hope to convey the message of working together despite individual differences, like water and oil, towards a brighter future.”
Mr Tan Bing Yao and Mdm Minah Binti Mohd



UOB is a recipient of the Pinnacle Award, Volunteer Partner Award and Charity Platinum Award
UOB, a long-time partner of Community Chest, is motivated in enriching lives and strengthening social bonds. Their giving efforts, guided by their values of honour, enterprise, unity, and commitment, have supported communities in need for many decades.

UOB believes that creating a caring culture within the company can impact the wider community. To encourage employees to give back to society, UOB provides three days of annual paid volunteer leave to all permanent and contract staff. UOB’s strong culture of giving is evident when employees come together yearly to volunteer and raise funds for communities in need through the UOB Global Heartbeat Run/Walk.

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, UOB was not deterred from running the event. They converted the UOB Global Heartbeat Run/Walk to a virtual format and raised over $1.3 million towards President’s Challenge and designated social service agencies last year. This is part of a five-year partnership where funds raised through UOB’s corporate social responsibility efforts are channelled to designated charities through Community Chest.

“Our giving efforts have brought our colleagues, customers and partners together to make a positive difference. We hope that our collective efforts and continued partnership with Community Chest will inspire more people and organisations to support social causes.”
Ms Janet Young, Managing Director and Head, Group Channels and Digitalisation, Strategic Communications and Brand, UOB

SP Group 

SP Group

SP Group is a recipient of the Enabler Award, Volunteer Partner Award and Charity Platinum Award

Over the years, SP Group has remained steadfast in providing sustained support to the social service sector by setting up and funding programmes for seniors, children, and youths from lower-income families. They also enable their customers and business associates to contribute to Community Chest through the SP app and donation appeals in SP’s utilities bills, and participation in SP’s fundraising events.

When the pandemic hit, SP Group scaled their support towards communities in need. At the SP Power Packs charity drive last year, SP Group increased the number of Power Packs by five-fold so that household essentials and COVID-19 relief items can be distributed to more families. In the same year, SP Group partnered with Community Chest and KidSTART to launch the SP Kids at Heart initiative, where learning tools, including digital devices for home-based learning, were provided to children from lower-income families. The learning kits were assembled and distributed by their employee volunteers, known as the SP Heart Workers.

Besides being involved in national-level efforts to provide pandemic relief to the public, these employees also organise outreach activities and had sparked collaborations with corporate partners and social service agencies to empower individuals and families in need.

“SP Group’s contributions and outreach unify our people and deepen the positive impact we can create we make in our community.”
Mr Stanley Huang, Group CEO, SP Group

HP Inc. is a recipient of the Volunteer Partner and Charity Silver Award
HP strives to become the most sustainable and just technology company. Rising above the challenges and disruptions of the pandemic, HP continued its community outreach efforts to create better outcomes for those in need. 

In 2021, HP’s employees provided a year-long mentoring programme to primary school children from Life Community Services Society on coding and website design. They also partnered with Community Chest in the virtual HP Charity Show 2021 and raised more than $125,000, which was channelled to programmes that support persons with mental health conditions, adults with disabilities, and children with special needs.

“We resonate deeply with Community Chest’s purpose of empowering communities in need, whether through donations, volunteerism, or other forms of contribution. Through our joint efforts, we hope to create a more caring society for all.”
Ms Vivian Chua, Managing Director, HP Inc.


ERA Realty Network Pte Ltd (ERA)

ERA is a recipient of the SHARE Achiever Award

ERA is dedicated to empowering communities in need and believes that everyone can play a part in giving back. To help provide sustained funding to social service agencies, ERA actively involves the entire company to contribute regularly through SHARE, Community Chest’s regular giving programme. These donations are matched dollar-for-dollar by ERA, enabling them to raise twice the amount of funds.

Besides their monthly contribution, ERA also gives their time and resources to organising fundraising initiatives, such as a charity art exhibition in support of children and youths from lower-income families. These giving efforts have created a culture of care among employees, which inspired several of them to spearhead initiatives and support other charities in their own capacity.

“With over 20 years of active participation in the SHARE programme, we remain committed to giving back to our local communities through our annual contribution to Community Chest. We hope that our continued support will be able to create a positive impact in our society.”
Ms Doris Ong, Deputy CEO, ERA Realty Network Pte Ltd



Tolaram is a recipient of the Charity Platinum Award

Giving has been a fundamental part of how Tolaram operates. Over the years, the organisation has championed initiatives for community development, education, and healthcare.

Throughout the pandemic, Tolaram continued to support communities in need. In 2021, they partnered with Pathlight School to support programmes that empower students with special needs. Globally, Tolaram has also donated in cash and in-kind towards pandemic relief efforts in countries where they operate.

Tolaram hopes their giving efforts will encourage businesses and individuals to contribute meaningfully to society.

“We are committed to uplifting those around us and strive to continue helping our communities grow. We are delighted to support the causes of Community Chest, and we urge like-minded businesses to join us so that collectively, we can improve the lives of those in need.”
