At Goldbell, we don’t believe that giving back to the community is simply about good deeds and charity. To us, it is also about treating everyone as part of our family.
For more than three decades, we have always recognised the spirit of giving and doing our part to serve the community. Together as a family, we celebrate achievements and persevere through difficulties. We grow together by helping one another, making sure no one is left behind.
At Goldbell Foundation, we are truly inspired to share this belief.

We firmly believe that as part of the society, every individual has the responsibility to care for our trees and environment. The Plant-A-Tree Programme was established for both organisations and individuals to contribute to the greening of our City in a Garden by planting trees.
The Programme aims to give every individual a chance to donate to the cost of a young tree and plant it, thereby sustaining our lush greenery. Trees play a crucial role in our ecosystem by maintaining our biodiversity, securing a future for our environment. Make your 'green investment' for the future with us!
