Over 6,000 employee volunteer hours. 150 Group-wide community investment initiatives. $1.5 million in financial support contributed to local communities – that’s how much Frasers Property invested in doing good for our communities last year!
Every November, Frasers Property observes and commemorates Frasers Community Month, when our employees rally together and offer their time and resources to support causes across our communities.
Frasers Community Month brings together employees, tenants and partners across our markets, enabling us to bring to life our Purpose - Inspiring experiences, creating places for good. Watch the key highlights here:
Beyond Frasers Community Month, we continued to step up efforts and strengthen partnerships through 2022, creating more platforms for our employees to do good.
We were recognised as one of the Champions of Good in Singapore by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) for being an exemplary leader and multiplier of corporate giving.

We established a Community Investment Framework in 2020, aligning our priorities with the needs of the communities where we operate.
With key focus areas in Health, Education and the Environment, the framework guides the projects we support and the partnerships we foster.

Apart from Health and the Environment, our Community Investment Framework has a focus area in Education. We recognise education as an important enabler.

While the sector has inter-generational impact across its value chain and building lifecycle, we see real estate as a people business. As a Purpose-led company, engaging stakeholders and intensifying our partnerships remain critical to our continuous value creation for our stakeholders.
As we operate in communities across five asset classes in over 70 cities, we look forward to identifying more partners to address the needs and gaps faced by communities
