CORPORATE SPONSOR SHIP - THE
DANISH SEAMEN’S CHURCH
SPONSOR POLICY
We invite you to become a Corporate Sponsor of the
Danish Seamen’s Church supporting the Danish
community in Singapore. Below please find the
sponsor options available to your company along
with an outline of benefits for your company to enjoy.
We are always open for your comments and
questions and will be looking forward to welcoming
you as a sponsor of the Danish Seamen’s Church
2015 – celebrating the 30th anniversary for the
Church.
FUNDING
Historically the Danish Seamen's Church Singapore was very sparingly
funded mainly from DSUK (Danske Sømands-og Udlandskirker). When
cuts made the funding unsustainable, local initiatives has led to a safer,
financial position enabling more focus on future activities.
The annual budget (2015) of about SGD 800.000 is funded from 3
sources each contributing about 1/3:
Sponsorships and donations are raised through active fundraising work
mostly by volunteers. Currently the main contributors are Danish,
maritime companies and to a lesser extent Danish foundations, private
donors and Singapore authorities. The sponsorship benefits are
continuously being refined and foundations are being pursued. We aim
to increase the number of sponsors particularly from non-maritime
companies.
FUNDING
Memberships and activities have also risen significally. Paid membership is a
recent, successful initiative and as of September 2014 more than 150 households
are members. Thanks to the hard work and commitment of church staff and
many volunteers; church, social and cultural activities based around our
magnificent landmark building continue to evolve. We aim to increase our
membership base and to offer more activities.
DSUK contributes salaries of the port chaplain, the senior and junior assistants.
Though recent years staff allocated to Singapore has been reduced and the
rent contribution has ceased completely. We do not expect a reversal of this
development.
Going forward the existence of the Danish Seamen’s Church in Singapore, will to
a large extend depend on membership fees, profit from various events and not
least the support from the Danish community and corporate sponsorships.
