Sands for Singapore

Marina Bay Sands’ commitment to Singapore extends beyond helping to support the country’s economic and tourism goals. We also use our unique resources and active Team Member volunteerism to support the nation’s social needs, providing a positive impact in the local community.

Our flagship Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme, Sands for Singapore, supports meaningful causes, with a focus on youth, education and the arts. Through our annual three-day Sands for Singapore Charity Festival, more than S$27 million has been raised for beneficiary organisations since 2013.

We have deep collaborations with community partners including Community Chest Singapore, Association for Persons with Special Needs (APSN), AWWA, Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS), and many more.

Since 2011, we have supported more than 80 non-profit organisations, and in 2019 alone financial and in-kind support was provided to more than 60 charitable partners.

We leverage our unique offerings, such as the staff strength of more than 10,000 Team Members, our access to world-class celebrity talent, and the various resources and attractions of our integrated resort, to give back to the community. In 2019 our staff gave back in record numbers, with more than 3,500 individual employees carrying out volunteer work, or 15% more than in 2018. Since the opening of Marina Bay Sands in 2009, Team Members have carried out nearly 60,000 hours’ worth of volunteer work.
