Singapore Institute of Management (SIM), Standard Chartered Bank, Keppel Corporation Limited and RusSing Holdings Pte Ltd pledged a total of $160,000, in support of a young local talent’s wish to use his gift for music to help those in need.
14-year-old Matthew Supramaniam, who is reading music at Eton College, recorded his first album titled “Youthful MUSING” with the Orchestra of the Music Makers in an effort to raise funds for children and elderly programmes supported by the Community Chest. SIM, Standard Chartered Bank and Keppel Corporation Limited have supported his fund-raising initiative with a $50,000 donation each, with RusSing Holdings Pte Ltd pledging another $10,000.
On 17 November, SIM’s contribution to this fund-raising initiative was recognised during Community Chest’s Christmas Light-Up Ceremony at Ion Orchard Outdoor Atrium, with President Tony Tan Keng Yam as the Guest-of-Honour. Mr Ronald Tan, Executive Director of SIM, received a token of appreciation from Mr Chan Chun Sing, Acting Minister, Ministry of Social and Family Development.
Mr Tan said, “Underpinning all that we do at SIM is the belief that every individual’s potential can be realised to benefit society with appropriate support and nurturing toward both academic and nonacademic achievements. We are therefore very pleased to support Matthew Supramaniam as a promising young musical talent for Singapore as well as the good work of the Community Chest of Singapore.”
