Community Impact

Across each of our business lines, we work to enrich the quality of people’s lives in the communities where we operate. These efforts take several forms, including:

Employee donation matching
Corporate giving
Employee volunteer activities

Our employee donation matching program allows employees to select nonprofits of their choice to donate and SGH matches up to $2,500 per employee in a calendar year. Employees are also able to donate their vacation time, which is then converted to cash donations to charities of their choice. In 2021, SGH was proud to support charities and local causes through monetary and in-kind donations delivered through both direct giving and employee matching.


Through numerous charity partnerships and community events, we encourage our employees to volunteer and participate in opportunities that matter to them. Here are just a few examples of our community impact.

Employee Donation Matching
Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund

In May 2022, we donated $50,000 to the GlobalGiving Ukraine Crisis Relief Fund, which supports humanitarian assistance in impacted communities in Ukraine and surrounding regions with Ukrainian refugees. We also matched $14,708 in employee donations, which resulted in a total of $29,416 for Ukraine relief efforts.

Corporate Giving
Penang State e-Learning Program

In 2021, SGH donated 50 laptops to low-income families in Penang to help close the digital divide and increase access to education in order to improve quality of life.

Passing the Ball in Penang

Since 2016, employees at SGH’s Penang site have engaged with the local community to train, coach and play football with local youth aged 8-16. This program encourages young people to develop discipline and teamwork skills as they hone their physical talents, all while building confidence and self-assurance. In 2021, we were proud to see the team recognized as Bagan District League Champions.
