(a) Bicentennial Community Fund
To encourage more Singaporeans to embrace the spirit of giving back and Institutions of a Public Character (IPCs) to reach out to more donors, the new Bicentennial Community Fund will provide dollar-for-dollar matching for donations made to IPCs between 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020.
The one-stop platform, Giving.sg, has also been enhanced to better match donors and volunteers with meaningful causes.
This platform provides charities with an easy and secure way to establish an online presence, and receive donations digitally. Donors can also quickly navigate and find a worthy cause that matches their passion and commitment, and start on their giving journey.
Further details will be released by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth at a later date.
