The SAPC Charity image is representative of the extended community that we aim to support in our charitable efforts, embracing the full diversity of origin, status, and culture of our community membership.

Giving something back to the communities where we live and work is a social responsibility that we are proud to support, and is a significant part of what defines the SAPC.  Since its inception, the SAPC has contributed regularly to the local community through active support of both local and international charitable organizations.

Making a difference in the community is just as important to us as making a difference in the industry in which we work. With the help of our members and our members’ organizations we aim to pursue as many opportunities as possible to help make a difference.
