CALL FOR DONATIONS TO THE SCAL COVID-19 FUND
Every business owner knows that it pays to be prepared for unforeseen crises. However, few would have anticipated the devastation of the COVID-19 outbreak in threatening their survival.
The COVID-19 pandemic has stopped virtually every construction project over the past months. Construction firms are grappling with no revenue during this period while still having to incur operating costs such as employee salaries, rentals and overheads. The threat of many companies, especially the small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) closing shop is real.
But it is important that SMEs remain in businesses as part of an important link in the construction value chain. They have built up capabilities over the years. And if they close, so will the availability of expertise and services that are critical to support construction projects.
The Singapore Contractors Association (SCAL) has set up a SCAL COVID-19 Fund to lead the industry in helping SME construction firms tide over the COVID-19 crisis.
With a target to raise a total of $1 million, the Fund aims to provide eligible member firms and their employees with temporary relief to ease their financial difficulties.
We seek your support to donate to the SCALCOVID-19 Fund. Your generous donation will go a long way to help our SME members remain in business as part of an important link in our construction eco-system.
To donate, simply use one of the following payment options:
Please indicate “SCAL COVID-19 Fund” with the name of your company and contact person in the transfer details.
For more information and enquiries, please contact Ms Doreen Tia at telephone number 62789577 or e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to your generous support towards the SCAL COVID-19 Fund.
