Bridge It! is a Community Service Project aimed at creating Singapore first Corporate Social Responsibility Hub. The project is organized by a group of passionate undergraduates from Singapore Management University and supported by the Central Singapore CDC – Mayor’s Imagine Fund. The project hopes to bridge business and their stakeholders by creating a heightened awareness about Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and its benefits.

The goal of the project is to change the pre-conceived mindset of businesses that CSR only involves big firms and encompasses only charity work. CSR is not merely about giving but also entails receiving as well. For instance, the project hopes to let businesses aware of other benefits which may come with CSR such as optimization and cost savings that may inevitably allow companies to generate more profits in the long run.
