About Campaignends 08 Jul 2020, 11:59 PM
Many people are hesitant to undergo colonoscopy due to the financial burden. It costs $3,300 (before government subsidy) or $1,000 (after subsidy). Even after Medisave withdrawal, this sum is prohibitive for many low-to-medium income Singaporeans. For these patients who earn less than $1800 monthly per person in a household but do not otherwise qualify for traditional means of financial assistance, the cost of one colonoscopy is challenging.
As part of our 30th anniversary celebrations of the oldest and first Department of Colorectal Surgery in Singapore, we set up the SPRUCE fund to raise $300,000. All funds raised will directly subsidise 300 patients with their colonoscopy fees. Eligible patients are selected via MOH means-testing.
All eligible donations will enjoy a 250% tax deduction till 31 December 2019. The donation will be automatically included in the donor's IRAS tax assessment and the receipt will be issued upon request. If you would like one, please email us at [email protected]
