Our Campaign Story

ends 28 Feb 2021, 11:59 PM

I am mummy to 9-year old boy who is fortunate to grow up in a home surrounded by books. The love of reading and being exposed to the different worlds in each story and genre can ignite a child's imagination and give them respite from the realities of life.
Through this fund raiser, I hope to share valuable life lessons with my boy and other children (and their families) - being able to help is a privilege to pay forward.
We can create opportunities to help easily and translate intent into action with a little help from everyone. :)

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.
