SANDS FOR SINGAPORE

The goal of Sands for Singapore, Marina Bay Sands’ CSR programme, is to identify portions of the local community that are currently underserved, leverage our unique offerings and mobilize our over 9,500 workforce to make a positive impact. 

Our designated charities, including Art Outreach Singapore, Association for People with Special Needs, Cerebral Palsy Alliance SingaporeDyslexia Association of Singapore and Singapore Association for the Deaf, have benefitted from our continuous support and engagement.

In addition, we also support other local beneficiaries including those related to youth and education. Working with key partners such as Community Chest, we are able to reach out to over 300,000 people in Singapore including children with special needs and youths-at-risk, people with disabilities, frail and lonely elderly and families facing difficulties.

The anchor initiative of Sands for Singapore is our annual signature charity event - Sands for Singapore Charity Festival. Started in 2013, the multi-day festival serves to raise public awareness of our partner charities and raise funds for them through a series of meaningful events that utilise every facet of our property, from our theatres, retail mall and restaurants, to our convention centre and museum. The three-day Sands for Singapore Charity Festival in 2016 raised over S$3.5 million for 80 local charities. Over the past four editions of Sands for Singapore Charity Festivals, Marina Bay Sands has raised over S$16 million in total for local charities.
