Champion local arts – M1 has been supporting the arts since 1997, as we believe a thriving arts scene is important in enriching the quality of life, as well as strengthening social bonds and our identity, especially in a multicultural country like Singapore. Key sponsored events and arts groups include the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival, M1 Patch! Theatre Festival, M1 Peer Pleasure Youth Theatre Festival, M1 CONTACT Contemporary Dance Festival, as well as two leading homegrown contemporary dance schools - T.H.E Dance Company and Frontier Danceland. In recognition of our sustained support to Singapore’s arts scene over the years, M1 was presented with the Patron of the Arts Award in 2018 for the 19th consecutive year by the National Arts Council.
Support sporting talents and healthy living through sports - M1’s participation in the sports arena may be represented by our continued support towards Netball Singapore's initiatives including the promotion of the sport in schools, at the clubs and national levels with the M1 Talent Identification Programme, M1 Schools Challenge League and M1 Netball Super League. Since 2013, we have been hosting Singapore's biggest mixed-corporate annual netball competition - the M1 Corporate Netball Challenge, to promote the sport and healthy lifestyle to working adults. In 2018, we extended our partnership with Netball Singapore to host 12 Asian Nations in competing for the prestigious title of the M1 Asian Netball Championships.
Serve the community – Each year, we staged the M1 Charity Golf and M1 Charity Carnival events, supported by our staff, business partners and associates, to raise funds for our adopted charities, namely Beyond Social Services, Brahm Centre, Children-At-Risk Empowerment Association, and the M1 Students Support Fund, which provides supplementary support to low-income household students from 15 primary schools.
M1 SunCare Club – The M1 SunCare Club was initiated by a group of passionate employees who are committed to making a difference to the lives of the less privileged. Beyond financial support, the M1 SunCare Club actively promotes volunteerism among employees and has impacted positively to the lives of our beneficiaries from our adopted charities. Besides volunteers from M1, families and friends of employees have also shown their support by volunteering at the various events organised for our beneficiaries.
SunCare Club ties up with the following charities:
- Ang Mo Kio Family Service Centre
- Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore
- Children-At-Risk Empowerment Association
- Children’s Cancer Foundation
