SPH commemorates their 35th anniverary by giving back to the community with fund-raising initiative, Double The Love, which ran from May to July this year. For every donation made, Community Chest received a dollar-to-dollar matching from SPH & SPH Foundation.
"As we celebrate Singapore's bicentennial year, we are grateful for the support of many Singaporeans in the last 35 years. It is thus with heartfelt thanks that we are marking our 35th anniversary with a donation to charities to promote a caring and compassionate society," said Dr Lee Boon Yang, Chairman of SPH and SPH Foundation.
To mark the publisher's 35th anniversary, SPH and SPH Foundation raised their donation to $350,000 to match the initial funds of $76,000 raised from this campaign. A grand total of $426,000 was donated to Community Chest, to continually support the programmes from our social service agencies provided for the service users.
Thank you SPH for your exemplary efforts in empowering the community in need.
