AmCham CSR Programs, Community Partners, Volunteers
In the spirit of Christmas, all proceeds from the Governors’ Ball support two incredibly worthy causes: (1) the AmCham Grants Program to local charitable organizations in the Ho Chi Minh City area and southern Vietnam and (2) the AmCham Scholarship Program.
The AmCham Grants Program is part of AmCham’s CSR activities. It aims to support smaller local organizations in the Ho Chi Minh City area and southern Vietnam that may not have easy access to large grants from international foundations. At the same time, the program also provides a bridge for AmCham companies’ associates and students from AmCham Scholars Alumni/ae (ASA) to give back to the community through their volunteer participation in the grants allocation teams. Since 2004, the AmCham Grants Program has supported 54 projects with grants valued at more than US$ 212,000. In 2012, the program supported 8 grants valued at more than US$ 33,000 based on funds raised at the 2011 Governors’ Ball. Read more …
