In November 2009, a group of Senior DeMolays working in Singapore with extension arm of different DeMolay Chapters in the Philippines formed a group. The purpose of the organization was to continue the camaraderie and fellowship established in their Mother Chapters. The group was named “Filipino DeMolay Singapore (FDS)”. It is within the historic perspective that the Filipino DeMolay Singapore Alumni Chapter No. 46, was born and instituted on December 14, 2011.
FILIPINO DeMOLAY SINGAPORE ALUMNI CHAPTER No. 46 known through its acronym “FDSAC46”. The FDSAC46, its Officers and Members owe allegiance to and adhere to the principle, goals and objectives of the Order of DeMolay, DeMolay Alumni Association of the Philippines, DAAP and the Supreme Council Order of DeMolay of the Philippines, SCOD.
To become active and potent force in the growth and development of society internationally.
The FDSAC46 shall have two-fold purposes which are:

The Objectives of the FDSAC46 are the following:
