On 8 to 10 September, join Marina Bay Sands as we help a variety of Singaporean charities to raise funds through fun and exciting family-friendly activities. Young and the young-at-heart will be inspired to do good for those in need at our 5th annual Sands for Singapore Charity Festival.

The Sands for Singapore Charity Festival is a multi-day event that aims to raise public awareness of our partner charities, and raise funds for them through a series of meaningful events that utilise every facet of the integrated resort – from the theatres, retail mall and restaurants, to the convention centre and museum. Since 2013, Marina Bay Sands has raised over S$16 million in total for local charities.

Revel in the festive atmosphere and learn more about local charities in a fun and celebratory way as we extend our help to the community and inspire others to give back.
