Retire With A Purpose (RWAP) was launched in September 2017 as Singapore’s first pre-retirement initiative to engage organisations to cultivate a culture of sharing through volunteerism at work.
The aim is to encourage employees aged 40 and above to be a volunteer. The programme is suitable for those who are interested in retirement planning or are already supporting community causes.
Employees will be introduced to a structured volunteering journey based on their interests, time commitment and goals over a five-month period.
In 2019, RSVP Singapore has engaged over 14,000 seniors through 73 community talks and workshops organised for/with corporates and other community partners (corporates such as Standard Chartered Bank and AXA, and community partners such as Council for Third Age, National Trades Union Congress, Chinese Development Assistance Council, Ministry of Social and Family Development, Singapore Teachers’ Union and Public Service Cares).
450 seniors were trained as volunteers and close to 2,000 seniors have signed up to be deployed as volunteers.
RSVP Singapore plans and provides a range of community service activities for corporates to participate and fulfill CSR objectives. Our CSR events are thematically categorised by Learning Journeys, Befriending, Thematic and Nature, to allow corporates variety in executing meaningful CSR projects for beneficiaries and to inspire employees to serve the needs of the community. RSVP also runs several community service programmes that corporates can sponsor in support of the respective programmes. All donations are 2.5 times tax deductible.
