The annual Sands for Singapore Charity Festival is the anchor initiative of Sands for Singapore. Started in 2013, the multi-day festival serves to increase 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. Over the past four editions, Marina Bay Sands has raised over S$16 million for local charities.
