About Us

Instituted in June 1994, the APB Foundation seeks to ignite compassion and inspire through our philanthropic efforts. We set resources to help people and organisations improve talents, enhance educational and research endeavours, and improve living conditions.

Committed to supporting Human Excellence, Creativity Development and Humanitarian Causes, the APB Foundation is involved in a variety of initiatives that range from arts funding and talent-building projects for human capital development, to engaging in meaningful partnerships with organisations or individuals who share our common goal to serve the society and building a sustainable future.

The APB Foundation is a registered Charity with Institution of Public Character (IPC) status in Singapore, and is managed and funded by Asia Pacific Breweries (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. Asia Pacific Breweries (Singapore) employees regularly volunteer for APB Foundation initiatives and events.

Human Excellence – Embracing the Quest for Knowledge

Recognising that human capital drives global competitiveness, the APB Foundation keenly supports education and undertakings that nurture human capital in Singapore. For the same reason, we also promote studies in the fields of medicine and technology, and assist research endeavours that facilitate socio-economic progression.

We hope that with our contributions, Singapore can continue to enhance its competitive edge supported by a ready pool of talents, sportsmen, educators, researchers and professionals.

Some of the projects we have supported include the APB Foundation Scholarship for Persons with Disabilities, APB Foundation Resources Centre at the Singapore Nurses Association, the Chao Tze Cheng Professorship in Pathology and Forensic Science, the National Youth Achievement Award and more.

Creative Development and Innovation

The APB Foundation believes that harnessing the creativity of individuals and investing in innovation help to fuel society and enable communities to
flourish. As such, we remain committed in supporting the development of arts in Singapore and we have extended our focus to support environmental sustainability initiatives that help to brew a better Singapore.

Through the initiatives we support, the APB Foundation seeks to nurture and inspire artists, cultivate creations and works, and make a meaningful impact on the world and environment around us.

From dance theatre to art museum, theatre groups to fine arts, the APB Foundation has benefitted arts groups like Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, National Arts Council, Singapore Dance Theatre, Singapore International Film Festival, Very Special Arts and we are looking to support causes that build a sustainable future

Humanitarian Causes – Reaching Out to the Less Privileged

The APB Foundation seeks to play a constructive role in reaching out to the destitute and disadvantaged so that they may rise above their challenges, improve their quality of life and in turn, contribute to society eventually.

We believe that the causes we partake in should enable self-reliance where possible. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the APB Foundation donated $75,000 to the Migrant Workers’ Assistance Fund (MWAF), the humanitarian charity arm of Migrant Workers’ Centre to help migrant workers tide through income loss and provide food, shelter and basic necessities. We also partnered with the Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics (HOME) to provide shelter and recovery treatment for migrant women who were trafficked in Singapore. In addition, the Foundation also supported the Specialist Singapore International Volunteers from Singapore International Foundation to enable Vietnamese medical professionals and Cambodian physiotherapists to provide better medical care for their respective communities.

For the same reason, the APB Foundation helped lower-income families with physically disabled members, elderly destitute and needy families cope with rising food prices by distributing basic food items to these beneficiaries.

Over the years, the APB Foundation has funded numerous causes and charities that benefitted cancer patients, persons with disabilities, needy families and those with life-threatening illnesses amongst others. Some of the beneficiaries include Migrant Workers’ Centre, Assisi Hospice, Beyond Social Services, Breast Cancer Foundation, Children’s Cancer Foundation, Dover Park Hospice, Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics (HOME), Singapore Heart Foundation and more.
