About the Programme

Launched in February 2009, 1000 Enterprises for Children-in-Need (1000E) is a fund-raising programme that aims to encourage small, medium and large companies to engage in corporate philanthropy by pledging their donation to Singapore Children’s Society annually.

Our objective for this programme is to recruit 1000 business enterprises to adopt Singapore Children’s Society as their official supported charity and achieve a net contribution of $1 million.

Come on board and be part of our 1000 Enterprises programme!

Companies can choose to participate in this programme by being a:

  • Patron Enterprise (with donation of $100,000 and above),
  • Principal Enterprise (with donation of $30,000 to $99,999),
  • Leading Enterprise (with donation of $10,000 to $29,999), or
  • Participating Enterprise (with donation of $1,000 to $9,999).

We hope that with each enterprise coming on board this programme, we will light up the future of another child in need.

We are also deeply honoured to have Deputy Prime Minister, Coordinating Minister for National Security, Mr Teo Chee Hean as our Patron for 1000 Enterprises for Children-in-Need programme.

"I believe that all businesses, whether large or small must actively promote community growth and development for the simple reason that if the community does not thrive, business cannot thrive. Rallying 1000 companies to donate just a $1,000 upwards is a novel way of raising money for a good cause. I hope more companies can step forward and help us to achieve our target of 1000 enterprises. "
