ABOUT BEAUTIFUL MIND CHARITY

Beautiful Mind Charity (BMC) is a philanthropic organization that pursues cultural diplomacy and aims to give and share love with the less privileged around the world through diverse cultural activities.  BMC was first established in the U.S. (September 2006), followed by Hong Kong (November 2006) and Korea (March 2007) as an organization recognized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade of the Republic of Korea.  In January 2012, BMC was also founded in Singapore as the fourth chapter and obtained its charity organization status in September 2012 followed by Institution of a Public Character (IPC) status in February 2016. In July 2016 BMC was honoured to be granted a special consultative status by the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) of the United Nations.

 

Since its establishment in 2006, BMC has been hosting over 424  Beautiful Concerts in Korea, as well as in 75 different countries and 108 different regions around the world.  Beautiful Concerts seek to foster a loving and harmonious culture through music, thereby bringing everyone together, regardless of their race, nationality or disability.  BMC donates proceeds from these activities to local community and charity groups in need of financial assistance and attention, as well as to cover the activities and expenses of its students in Beautiful Mind Music Academy (BMMA).

 

BMC has supported various local organizations, including Lighthouse School, Riding for the Disabled Association, SPD (formerly known as Society for the Physically Disabled), Rainbow Centre, and Muscular Dystrophy Association Singapore through its Beautiful Concerts, which were successfully held in 2012, 2013, and 2014. BMC also serves the community by holding mini-concerts at various schools, nursing homes, and hospitals.  In the future, BMC Singapore plans to continue to host other meaningful cultural events, with the goal to promote an environment of giving and sharing in Singapore.

 

Beautiful Mind Charity (이하 BMC)는 다양한 문화활동을 통하여 전세계 소외된 이웃들에게 사랑과 나눔을 전하는 문화 외교 자선단체로서, 2006년 미국과 홍콩에 이어 2007년 3월에는 외교통상부의 인가를 받아 한국에도 설립되었습니다. 싱가포르에는 2012년 1월에 설립이 되어 같은 해 9월부터 Charity 단체로 정식 등록이 되었고 2016년 2월에는 IPC (공익단체) 의 지위를 가지게 되었습니다. 2016년 7월에는 UN 경제사회이사회의 특별협의지위를 취득함으로 문화자선활동 공로를 인정 받았습니다.

 

BMC는 장애, 비장애, 인종과 민족에 관계없이 모든 예술인들이 동참하여 사랑과 화합의 문화 공연을 만들어 가고 있으며 공연에서 얻어지는 수익금과 후원금은 도움과 관심을 필요로 하는 지역 사회와 뷰티플마인드 뮤직아카데미 (BMMA)를 위해 쓰여지고 있습니다.  2006년 설립 이래, BMC는 다양한 봉사활동과 더불어 매년 5-6회의 자선 음악회를 한국에서 개최하고 있으며 현재까지 전세계 75개국 108개 지역에서 424회의 뷰티플 콘서트를 개최하였습니다. 

 

싱가포르 BMC는 지난 2012년, 2013년, 2014년에 성황리에 마친 세 번의 뷰티플 콘서트를 통해 시각장애인학교인 Lighthouse School과 무료 승마재활치료 단체인 Riding for the Disabled Association of Singapore (RDA), 싱가포르 장애인협회 SPD, 장애인학교 Rainbow Centre와 근무력증협회 Muscular Dystrophy Association Singapore (MDAS)를 후원하였고 지속적으로 양로원, 특수학교, 병원 등을 찾아가 봉사연주도 활발히 이어가고 있습니다.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Welcome to Beautiful Mind Charity Singapore!

BMC Singapore pursues the same vision and core values that are shared by BMC USA, Hong Kong, and Korea, and serves the community by caring the underprivileged, especially nurturing musical talents in people with disabilities. Our mission is to chip in to make the world we live better and more inclusive regardless of their physical conditions and cultural differences. To this aim, we’d like to invite you to stand together with us to embrace our collective effort!

I thank the respected board members for their sincere commitments for the works of BMC Singapore and BMC musicians who donate their valuable time and talents for offering voluntary performances at the needy institutes, and many volunteers for their kindness and compassion.  We wish that BMC Singapore together with your act of benevolence will be a catalyst in making the society more caring and sharing towards a beautiful world. Thank you!
