UOB Heartbeat

Enriching lives and strengthening societal bonds in our communities are fundamental to our business philosophy. We are committed to supporting the development of the communities in which we operate through art, children and education. We believe these are essential for the quality and progress of society. Our efforts have helped the young, the untapped talent, those with special needs and the underprivileged across the region over many decades.

All our corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts from across the Group come together in the UOB Heartbeat CSR programme. The programme aims to create sustainable good for more caring and inclusive societies through corporate philanthropy, stakeholder partnerships and employee participation. Guided by our values of Honour, Enterprise, Unity and Commitment, we draw together our colleagues, customers and business partners to make a positive difference to our communities.


We are committed to helping improve lives and strengthen the social fabric through financial and non-financial contributions such as donations in cash or kind, sponsorships, scholarships and the purchase of goods and services from charities.


We maximise our corporate giving by connecting and collaborating with partners for greater reach and impact. They include customers, business partners, vendors, community development councils and institutions, and UOB Painting of the Year artists.


We unite as one in giving our time, skills and service to help build strong, inclusive and caring communities. We promote volunteerism that creates a sense of belonging for our colleagues and helps improve the lives of others.

We focus on three areas to open hearts and minds
in building an inclusive society.

Championing Southeast Asian Art

Art connects people, broadens minds, enriches lives and strengthens societal bonds. With our regional heritage and long standing support of Southeast Asian art, we aim to draw out the next generation of great artists from the region.

Developing the Young to Their Potential

As children are the future, our efforts focus on helping them have a strong headstart in life, inspiring them to express themselves and nurturing their talent as individuals.

Laying the Foundation For the Future

Education is essential for the progress of a country, its economy and its people. We open up and support learning opportunities for young minds and we help develop leaders of tomorrow.
