Touching Hearts and Building Dreams
PropNex is a firm believer of giving back to the society. Over the years, we’ve been involved in numerous charity events and championed many meaningful causes. It’s our way of helping the less fortunate and upholding one of our core beliefs, encouraging us to participate in the promotion of civic improvement, health and education in the society.
2000 Starting from young
We contributed $15,000 towards the development of preschoolers, in support of the education programme, for a 10-year period. In addition, $10,000 was contributed to the Reader’s Programme for Children.
2004 A guiding hand for couples
We sponsored the Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund to the tune of $20,000. For our efforts in mentoring newly married couples in their early challenges and pressures, we were awarded with the Certificate of Family Network Ambassador.
2007 Help in focus
PropNex co-sponsored Nicholas Boothman’s training session at the Northlight School for students with special academic needs.
2008 Raising awareness
We contributed $1,600 as the sole sponsor of NIE’s GESL Group Project for the Children’s Aid Society. We also successfully hosted Art Action’s art exhibition, “Share A Bowl of Rice”, for free. Forty-eight pieces of art were solid, raising a whopping $11,688 for various charity organisations.
We also sponsored another NIE GESL Group Project supporting the Spastic Children’s Association of Singapore for $1,200.
2009 Going beyond borders
PropNex commits to donate $30,000 over three years to the Singapore Children’s Society as a Leading Enterprise Sponsor. This is under our corporate social responsibility theme of Empowering Future Generations Through Education.
One of our most massive projects was embarked upon in 2009 as well. The “PropNex Cares” Programme raised over $70,000 to build a school in Cambodia. With a 35-man strong contingent and 13 Victoria Junior College students, the team traveled to the country to paint the educational facility, build a water filtration system that provided portable drinking water, a pumping well, toilet cubicles and distribution of donated items to over 750 students.
2010 Building futures
PropNex went on another school-building mission, this time in the village of Trayong Pong, a two-hour drive north from Phnom Penh. Built from scratch, the school can accommodate up to 250 students. Students previously had to walk nearly 8 km to the nearest school – risking road hazards. Now getting an education has never been more convenient and safe.
2011 All shaved for a good cause
Over 40 staff and salespersons volunteered to have their hair shaved for the Hair for Hope initiative to help Children’s Cancer Foundation to increase awareness of cancer and improve the lives of children with cancer and their families. In all, we raised $50,000 for children fighting in solidarity against cancer.
PropNex is more than just a leading real estate company in Singapore. We want to give back to the community: Imagine Singapore in which every child with cancer is given access to affordable medical care and attention. This was our mantra.
2012 PropNex Ambassadors build a loving Singapore
In conjunction with Singapore’s 47th National Day Celebration, Col(NS) Mohamed Ismail – CEO of PropNex Realty and 20 handpicked PropNex Ambassadors together with 20 Children beneficiaries of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (STPMF) engaged in the making of mini-figurines for the NDP12 Engagement Activity “Building a LovingSG” at Marina Square Shopping Mall.
This event is part of ‘PropNex Ambassadors’ Care’ project, which aims to raise funds for the underprivileged children in Singapore in building resilience and independence through education, and also a way to cultivate a sense of pride to be a Singaporean for these future pillars of Singapore.
PropNex Ambassadors have raised $60,000 to “Building a LovingSG” charity project in support of STPMF. The funds will go towards pocket money disbursements and support of social and educational development of the children and youth. The children can use this money for school-related expenses, such as buying a meal and paying for their bus fares. This eases the burden of the many parents, who are struggling to feed their families on their meager incomes.
