Our Campaign Story

Do you remember queuing up in your school canteen, with your only worry being: should I get steamed or roasted chicken rice?

For many other children in Singapore, being able to face such a dilemma is a blessing.

Coming from a low-income family, recess money and transport fares can be too costly.

With every small donation, you will lessen the worries for another family, and provide a better learning environment for a child.

About The Charity

The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund provides pocket money to children from low-income families to help them through school. The children can use this money for school-related expenses, such as buying a meal during recess, paying for transport or using it to meet other schooling needs. The financial help also eases the burden of the many parents who are already struggling to feed their families on their meagre incomes.

The Fund supports about 10,000 children and youth a year. Since the year 2000, the Fund has disbursed more than $80m and helped over 180,000 children and youth.

STSPMF disburses the funds to needy students through participating mainstream schools and disbursing agencies such as Youth Centres, Family Service Centres (FSCs), Special Education (SPED) schools, VWOs working with persons with disability, specialised schools, Children's Homes and PAVE.

STSPMF is a charity with Institution of Public Character (IPC) status.
