Singapore Pools i-SHINE Staff Community Programme

Singapore Pools is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Tote Board and was established by the Singapore Government in 1968 as Singapore’s only legal lottery operator. It has two objectives – to provide a legal avenue for betting in Singapore to counter illegal betting syndicates and to channel surplus earnings to benefit the community. 

Singapore Pools’ i-SHINE Staff Community Programme was set up in 2003. It has since grown to include a fund-raising arm where Singapore Pools employees come together to raise funds for charity. ‘Football with a Heart’ is one of a series of fundraisers organized under the i-SHINE banner.

Since 2007, staff volunteers have raised over $3.6 million in aid of President’s Challenge and other worthy causes. Other fundraising events include Laksamania! Lunch with A Heart, Golf With A Heart, and Fashion With A Heart.
