To encourage individuals to give as part of their daily lives, by incorporating giving opportunities into customer transactions, a new Change for Charity Grant was introduced and will run for five years, from FY 2021 to FY 2025.
Under the Change for Charity Grant, the Government will match donations made by consumers through businesses’ payment platforms, and provide additional matching if businesses match their customers’ donations. Donations and matching grant proceeds will go toward ComChest to support critical social service programmes and services. In addition, businesses can receive a one-off enabler grant to cover a portion of the costs incurred when they enable giving capabilities through their payment platforms.
Further details will be provided by Ministry of Social and Family Development in due
