CapitaLand Hope Foundation $1 per “like” Charity Campaign
CapitaLand Hope Foundation and Angel’s Gate believe that giving back to society should start early.
This is why Angel’s Gate is honoured to have CapitaLand Hope Foundation as our official Charity Partner, in promoting the spirit of charity amongst the entrepreneurial circle.
CapitaLand Hope Foundation is donating S$1.00 for every “like” generated by businesses and projects on the Angel’s Gate website. Through this campaign, CapitaLand Hope Foundation is supporting and encouraging entrepreneurs to give back to society as they promote their businesses. It is a common misconception that giving back should only begin after businesses take off. Angel’s Gate and CapitaLand Hope Foundation would like to change that, and promote the spirit of giving among business owners right from the beginning of their entrepreneurial journeys.
CapitaLand Hope Foundation, the philanthropic arm of CapitaLand, was established in 2005 to further CapitaLand’s corporate social responsibility commitment to build a better future for underprivileged children. Its focus is to support programmes for the shelter, education and healthcare needs of underprivileged children in Singapore and overseas.
