The Dubai Endowment Sign is awarded to public and private bodies in order to highlight their contributions to the community.
Dr. Hamad Al Hammadi, Secretary-General of GCEC, said that the Sign is an innovative project launched by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to motivate public and private sector bodies to contribute to communities through innovative endowments.
Al Hammadi said any institution, no matter how large or small it is, can make contributions to a community. He called on all public and private institutions to participate in community development through innovative means to bolster their image to customers. He added that any enquiries to obtain the Endowment Sign can be made through the centre’s website — www.mbrgcec.ae.
The first batch of Endowment Sign recipients was already announced during the launch of the centre. The recipients include Emarat Al Youm newspaper, which sponsors the Autism Endowment, The MOB which developed promotional videos during the launch event as an Awareness Endowment, Kuttab Cafe which provided the Reading Endowment and Al Shabab Al Arabi Club that provided the Health Endowment.
The Sign was also presented to Wasl Asset Management Group for its School Maintenance Endowment, Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (du) for its Medicines Endowment, the Roads and Transport Authority for its Public Transport Endowment, the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority for a Marriage Endowment and the Mohammad Bin Rashid School for Communication for its Education Endowment.
