SBG Education Fund Scholarship

The Education Fund or also known as Edfund was initiated by pioneering members of SBG in the early 90’s in giving back to the local community. In 2000, it was officially established as a community outreach programme.

Since its establishment, the Edfund has grown over the years as a regular outreach for SBG and Singaporeans residing in Ho Chi Minh City with the aim to provide scholarship as a form of financial assistance (school fees) to needy and well-deserving local students in pursuing their academic studies.

To date (April 2016), SBG has raised almost US$ 451,700 and sponsored over 3,000 students from Primary School Level up to University in Ho Chi Minh City, Danang and provinces Northern Central Vietnam and Mekong Delta.

On 27 June 2010, SBG was awarded a certificate of commendation from the Ministry of Education and Training for its charitable efforts toward the local community. This is a further motivation for SBG to be committed in shaping a progressive Vietnam for the future by empowering the youth to actualize their potential through education.

Donations for the EdFund are mainly raised through SBG’s annual charity golf and gala-dinner events. If you would like to give one-time donation, you may contact our Secretariat at sbg@sbghcm or dial 08-6685 5370/5371 for assistance.
