SWF Attains ‘Institution of a Public Character’ (IPC) Status

SWF has attained ‘Institution of a Public Character’ (IPC) status.

The definition of this status, as taken from the Charity Portal, is:

“Institutions of a Public Character (IPCs) are charities which are able to issue tax deductible receipts for qualifying donations to donors. In other words, donors are able to claim tax relief (for 2015, this relief is 300% of the amount donated – http://www.iras.gov.sg/irashome/page04.aspx?id=1274) from their assessable income based on the amount donated, at prevailing deduction rate.

As this makes IPCs generally more appealing to donors in attracting donations, these organisations are rightfully held to a higher standard, both in terms of regulatory compliance as well as governance.”

For those who are interested to make a donation, please contact us at swf@swf.org.sg or +65 6289 5594
