BEMA Raised $633,500 for SDE Development Fund
The NUS School of Design and Environment (SDE) celebrates their 50th anniversary this year. In this milestone year, Building and Estate Management Alumni (BEMA) is privileged to jointly organise the SDE50 Fundraising Golf with the School.
President of BEMA, Dr Teo Ho Pin (Building '85) hosted the Fundraising Golf and Appreciation Dinner for alumni to network and connect with friends and business associates. Held at the Orchid Country Club on 25 July, 128 golfers in 32 flights teed off for a good cause.
This year, BEMA raised a record $633,500 for the SDE Development Fund, more than seven-fold increase from fundraising efforts the year before and the largest amount of funds raised by BEMA for SDE so far.
The SDE Development Fund will go towards establishing a Well & Green SDE precinct- a prototype for urban resilience and a living lab to nurture future-ready individuals through research and education. "I am heartened by the faithful giving of our donors year-on-year. This is commendable despite the economic headwinds and other global uncertainties in recent months. I thank our donors for their contribution as we shaped the next lap together, for both our current and future generations", said Dr Teo.
