About Pledge It Forward
In February 2017, the Singapore government announced that a personal income tax rebate set at 20% of tax payable (capped at $500) will be given to all tax residents for income earned in 2016. So we thought - why not donate that savings of $500, or any amount of that, towards 51 charities that are doing an amazing job at building a stronger and more inclusive Singapore? 100% of your donations will be designated to 51 charities, who are registered as member organisations under NCSS and have IPC status.

About the Charity
We are a fund-raising and engagement arm of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). As such, our role and purpose are aligned with NCSS to ensure that every person has the opportunity to live a life of dignity to his or her fullest potential within our society. We raise funds to support social service organisations so that they can do what they are best at - caring for and serving the less advantaged. Community Chest was established in 1983 with a simple yet vital mission - to raise funds for the many social service organisations of the nation. It is about raising funds from the community for the community in need. Social service organisations supported by Community Chest are then able to do what they are best at - providing critical social service programmes to help children with special needs, youths-at-risk, adults with disabilities, frail and lonely elderly, families facing difficulties and persons with mental health issues. Over the years, we have built an enduring trust and partnership with many organisations, foundations and individuals, enabling and empowering the social service users under our care to lead fulfilling lives. At the heart of it all is our Patron-in-Chief, President Halimah Yacob, who will be lending her support to our social service organisations.
