Q5: Can I donate anonymously?

A: Yes. All charities honour anonymous donations. Specify your desire to remain anonymous, and we will respect your request.

Q6: If I make a donation, am I entitled to tax deductions?

A: Singapore Children’s Society is an Institution of Public Character (IPC) and all local donations qualify for 2.5 times tax deduction. Please ensure your donation and details reach us by 31 December 2021 in order for the tax deduction to be allowed in your tax assessment for the Year of Assessment (YA) 2022.

You may wish to note that the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) now automatically acknowledges the tax deductible status of your donations if the charity submits your identification number to IRAS on your behalf. This means that you will not need the tax deduction receipts when submitting your annual tax assessment forms. For more information, please refer to IRAS website:

Q7: Will Singapore Children’s Society issue me a tax deduction receipt for my donation?

A: We will only issue a tax deduction receipt if you provide us with a mailing address. Otherwise, we wish you would join us in our efforts to go green as regardless of your donation amount, we will help to submit your tax deduction to IRAS so long as you provide your identification number when making a donation.
