On 15 December 2020, JCCI Singapore Foundation celebrated its 30th anniversary and conferred sponsorships for S$252,000 to 18 projects and events in the fields of arts, culture, sports and education for 2021. In the opening address, Chairman Mr Yoshihiko Ishigaki expressed his sympathy towards the local community affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. On behalf of the Japanese business community in Singapore, out of the its usual mandate, JCCI Singapore Foundation committed an extraordinary donation for  S$100,000 to The Invictus Fund – set up by the National Council of Social Service and administered by the Community Chest. This fund enables social service agencies to continue delivering critical services to the vulnerable during the pandemic. 

Sponsored Project – SDSC’s Majulah, Tokyo 2020 and beyond

The JCCI Singapore Foundation has been an ardent supporter of the Singapore Disability Sports Council (SDSC) since 1997. In early 2018, SDSC started the ‘Majulah, Tokyo 2020’ campaign to raise awareness about disability sports and the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.

This has been carried out through Project Abilities, where SDSC runs a variety of outreach programmes such as Learn-to-Play programmes, to introduce sports to Persons with Disabilities (PWDs). JCCI Singapore Foundation is also a founding supporter of a new bursary programme, Majulah Para Sports Bursary, that will support the ambitions of PWDs who are keen to pursue sports.

JCCI Singapore Foundation’s support over the years has exposed many PWDs to the joy of sport, and, has contributed to the discovery of many sporting talents. Most recently at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games that ended on 5 September, 10 athletes across 6 sports represented Singapore. They won two gold medals, set seven personal bests and five new national records. Tokyo, and the interactions with Japanese officials and volunteers, will remain etched in the memories of the athletes forever. SDSC is thankful to Japan for being wonderful hosts and we look forward to more wonderful experiences created together in the future.

Sponsored Project – Collecting Entanglements and Embodied Histories by Singapore Art Museum

What is in a gift?

 From social act to cultural performance or philosophical concept, the apparently ordinary act of gifting is in fact ambivalent and paradoxical, and consequently a source of fascination, vexation and debate. Unlike the economic transaction, the gift is more than the object of its exchange. It is an embodiment of an expansiveness of spirit by the giver, that often obliges its receiver, and may even unintendedly become an onerous burden. The exhibition, The Gift, is part of a broader project titled Collecting Entanglements and Embodied Histories that is developed as a dialogue between collections of four museums. The conversations extend into four related exhibitions that include artwork exchanges.

This exploration of collections also uncovers histories of collecting – of gifts received, rare discoveries unearthed, and acknowledgements of significance. https://www.singaporeartmuseum.sg/art-events/exhibitions/the-gift

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its
layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of le tters, as opposed to
using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web
page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many
web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes
on purpose (injected humour and the like).
