Scholarships & Bursaries
Woh Hup have always been supportive of higher education. We first established the Woh Hup Bursary at the National University of Singapore in 1977, in celebration of our 50th Anniversary. The most recent contribution from Woh Hup was a SGD$1 million donation to support the Lee Kuan Yew Fitzwilliam-NUS PhD Scholarship. We hope the recipients will benefit from this Scholarship and go on to contribute to the global community through education, research and industry.

Woh Hup encourages our employees to participate actively in charity work locally and overseas. Over the past 9 years, 1,500 staff have volunteered in various charity work and contributed more than 17,000 volunteering hours. Staff are recognized for their effort in dedicating their time to do good, through the Annual Volunteers Appreciation Luncheon, an initiative launched in 2018.
Woh Hup was conferred as one of the Champions of Good in 2018 and 2020. Champions of Good is part of the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre’s Company of Good programme that exists to inspire and activate companies to do good. The purpose of recognising organisations as Champions of Good is to acknowledge and validate companies for the good work they do in corporate giving and facilitating opportunities for them to grow and influence giving in Singapore. We are honoured to receive the awards as this is a testament, especially for our staff who have selflessly contributed their time to serve the community.

In 2018, we introduced our own volunteering programme where we work with 2 to 4 charities every year on a 10-month volunteering programme to provide a more meaningful giving journey for our staff and the beneficaries. We have worked with Alzehimer’s Disease Association, MINDS and SPD on befriending programme; Singapore Children’s Society on craft work and tuition; TOUCH Community Services on home cleaning. In addition, 3 sessions of litter picking were organized for our staff to participate with their family and friends. Beyond these, we are also supportive of community events organised by charities such as NKF health screening sessions where our staff helped out the event as usher and registration assistant. We will continue to organize volunteering work for our staff to stay engaged with the less-privileged community.
On top of philanthropy and volunteering work opportunities, Woh Hup actively sponsors employees and their family and friends in various charity runs and walks to support the organizing charities, and as part of the company’s initiative to promote a healthy lifestyle. We support charity sporting events including Charity Futsal Tournament by Boys’ Town, Down Syndrome Day and Walkathon by Down Syndrome Association (Singapore), Race Against Cancer by Singapore Cancer Society’s and Walk for Our Children by Singapore Children’s Society.
