CSR Activities have become a significant aspect for businesses. Not only is it a way to boost morale, create strong bonds, and bring colleagues together, but it makes work more meaningful. It helps both employers and employees stay connected with the world around them, and it gives them a better sense of accountability for the things they do individually and as a company.
What’s more is that having socially responsible policies can aid in attracting and retaining customers, especially if it is a cause they personally advocate, support, and resonate with. Ultimately, CSR activities will not only improve a company’s image, but it could also lead to greater productivity and long-term success.
We at AdvenTOUR can help arrange an event like this for you! We understand that while you recognise the importance of being socially responsible, it will take time to plan and determine the who, where, what, and how. Take a look at our list of CSR activities aimed towards giving back, particularly to communities in-need here in Singapore:
1 – Build Macpherson
Build MacPherson is our newest CSR initiative aimed at making a positive impact in the MacPherson estate. Our initiative focuses on supporting the diverse community residing in the rental blocks, which includes lower-income households and a significant number of seniors. At Build MacPherson, we believe in fostering a sense of community and empowerment through various programs, with a special emphasis on seniors and youths.
Our “Empower Seniors” program is designed to enrich the lives of the seniors in MacPherson estate by providing them with opportunities to learn meaningful and useful skills. We invite corporates to join hands with us in teaching these valuable skills, empowering seniors, encouraging them to use their skills to help corporates with simple delegated paid tasks. This wholesome project would not only give seniors a dignified opportunity to contribute but also, allow corporates an insight into the shared experiences of seniors who once lived their age. Additionally, corporate groups are also welcome to sponsor meals for seniors and take them on excursions, creating moments of joy and connection within the community.
Another integral aspect of Build MacPherson is our commitment to the education and well-being of the younger generation. Corporate volunteers have the opportunity to sponsor students to attend student care, plan engaging activities and excursions, mentor youths, as well as provide after-school tuition and study help. By investing in the education and development of these young minds, we contribute to the overall growth and success of the community.
Participating in Build MacPherson is not just about corporate social responsibility; it’s an investment in the well-being of the community and an opportunity for companies to make a meaningful impact. By engaging in these initiatives, companies not only enhance their corporate image but also foster a positive work culture. Employees involved in such initiatives often experience personal and professional growth, finding fulfilment in contributing to the betterment of society. Join us in Build MacPherson, and let’s build a brighter, more inclusive future together.
2 – Bag of Love
This activity targets disadvantaged households across the island. They could be individuals who don’t have a steady stream of income due to job loss. They could be a family with young children experiencing the sudden death of their sole breadwinner. It could be seniors living on their own, or perhaps those who are handicapped and have limited options to earn a living.
All these groups require support and assistance one way or another, so why not make an effort to help them get by and ease some of the struggles they face daily.
AdvenTOUR can help liaise with a community to determine the items that are in most need so that donations will be well-received and not gone to waste.
A team building program, virtual or in-person, will be curated for your company. Participants will take part in fun activities and challenges that could thus earn them points to purchase items for donation. The company will get involved in planning how to collect, sort, and distribute the bags of love to the chosen beneficiary.
Display a spirit of camaraderie not just with colleagues but also with a community in-need. Reach out and let them feel cared for despite the challenges they currently face.
3 – My Senior Buddy
Let’s get ready to light up the lives of seniors in need and team up with a community for the aged. Reach out to us to create a custom program that dials in on fun and laughter while bridging different generations together. Consider a colorful funfair where your staff can perform and entertain the elders. Enjoy the opportunity to provide tasty delicacies and beverages or to lead fun workshop courses that reveal new horizons of knowledge for the benefit of the elderly! Or how about pairing your staff with senior companions to share a good quality time together and visit a special attraction in Singapore?
Join us in making a significant difference in the lives of senior residents living alone and are dependent on the care of others. By dedicating your time and participating in a program like Senior Buddy, you can contribute to nurturing their spirits. Together with your team, this activity offers a unique opportunity for a genuine essence of empathy. Let’s make a positive impact and create a lasting memory for all!

4 – Singapore Beach Cleanup
Singapore may be small, but it has lots of outdoor pockets to enjoy and spend some time in nature. One of these places is the beach! Sometimes, however, trash gets left behind and there’s no one to pick them up. The outdoors like the beach are an extension of our homes; thus, it is equally important to keep them clean.
Partner with AdvenTOUR and let us plan a day for a company beach clean-up! Deploy your team members to collect and dispose of trash responsibly. We’ll begin with a briefing on safety and procedures, followed by the distribution of materials required. The team will then be divided into smaller groups and assigned to different areas of the beach.
A mini competition for the different groups can be run, and the team with the most trash collected or most special/ unique trash found will be rewarded.
By the end of the activity, all the trash will be put together to be disposed properly. Photos and videos will be taken during the event and collated for the company.
So no matter the CSR activity you choose, we at AdvenTOUR can help make that time for your company to give back meaningfully to a community in-need. It benefits you, but more importantly, benefits the greater good. Build a better team, improve your business, and enrich others or the environment you live in.
Enquire with us and let’s discuss a suitable program where you can show care and pay some kindness forward today.
We too have projects like this overseas. If you have the additional budget and like to organise CSR Projects overseas, follow the link to our sister company, One Dynamics, who also organises CSR projects in Bali, Batam & Bintan.
