Our Campaign Story

ends 31 Dec 2021, 11:59 PM

Planning for the long-term care of their wards is a pressing concern for many parents with special needs children. Ensuring sufficient funds which are well managed and administered when they are no longer around to care for their children, is of paramount importance.

This is especially challenging for low-income families, who may not have the resources to set up a trust or save for their children. SNTC's Gift Of A Lifetime (GOAL) Sponsorship Scheme supports eligible means-tested families by helping them to provide for their special needs children (campaign details below).

As the Life Company and a leading insurer in Singapore, we believe in doing our part to help vulnerable and underserved groups. We strongly support SNTC's GOAL Scheme, and are pleased to come alongside them to raise funds for this meaningful cause.

To show our full commitment and support for our consolidated efforts as one organisation, Great Eastern will match donations dollar-for-dollar up to S$50,000. Give generously today and make a difference in the lives of these families!

*All donations $50 and above are eligible for 2.5 times tax-deduction. Upon donating to this campaign, you are consenting to allow SNTC to share your donation details with Great Eastern upon request.

About Campaign

Gift Of A Lifetime (GOAL) helps a parent purchase a $100,000 term plan for proceeds to be paid into the child's SNTC trust account upon demise of the parent.

GOAL has two parts:

1. It sponsors the initial $5,000 deposit to set up an SNTC trust account for the child.

2. The parent follows a plan to top-up the trust account in order to receive up to $5,000 in matching donations. These funds are then used to pay the premium of a term policy, on a parent's life.

Through a combination of the parent's top-up to the child's trust account and the matching donations, the trust fund will be able to pay for the insurance premiums.

SNTC does not receive referral fees from any insurance products. The term plan is offered on a non-advisory basis.

This campaign qualifies for Tote Board's $-for-$ Enhanced Fund-Raising Programme Grant up to $250,000.

About The Charity

Supported by the Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF), Special Needs Trust Company (SNTC) is the only non-profit trust company set up to provide affordable trust services for persons with disabilities. Since 2014, the Special Needs Savings Scheme (SNSS) is also administered by SNTC. The purpose of SNTC is to provide a vehicle that ensures the financial security of persons with special needs is met when their parents or caregivers pass on. At SNTC, we have a team of trained social workers who will work with the caregivers to develop individualised care plans for each special beneficiary to meet their long-term care needs.
