About Campaign

ends 31 Mar 2022, 11:59 PM
The arts capture our memories and stories, playing its part in building the unique identity and spirit for Singaporeans. The pandemic has resulted in an unprecedented financial impact on the arts community. Performing venues have been shut down overnight, productions and events have been cancelled and many arts groups face uncertainty with future work. This is especially so for small arts organisations who are unable to fundraise for themselves. During this difficult time, our local arts groups need your help more than ever, to continue to keep our cultural legacy alive.
Your donation matters and is deeply appreciated- give now!

Eligible cash donations will receive 250% tax deduction and be matched by the Cultural Matching Fund (CMF).

About the Charity

The Sustain the Arts (stART) Fund is an initiative by the National Arts Council (NAC), supported by the private sector to boost the long-term sustainability of small arts organisations, and to nurture a culture of giving to the arts. The need is especially pronounced today due to the disruptions and implications that COVID-19 has brought to everyone, especially the arts and culture scene.

The stART Fund is managed as a sub-fund under the Support of the Arts Fund (SFAF), a registered charity with IPC status under the Charities Act. Hence, all donations to the stART Fund will be eligible for 250% tax deductions.

All donations of SGD $10 and above are eligible for tax exemption. This will be automatically processed by the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) with your NRIC or UEN number. You may wish to note that the IRAS now automatically acknowledges the tax deductible status of your donations if the charity submits your identification number to IRAS on your behalf. This means that you will not need the tax deductible receipts when submitting your annual tax assessment forms. For more information, please refer to IRAS website: https://www.iras.gov.sg/irashome/Other-Taxes/Charities/Donations-and-Tax-Deductions.

Should you still require a soft copy of the tax deductible receipt, please kindly send an email to: [email protected]
