About Campaign

ChildAid is an annual charity concert in aid of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (ST SPMF) and The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF).

This year's theme, Virtuoso, is inspired by a desire to showcase the creme de la creme of young talents. It will be a hybrid concert with both a physical and virtual audience, and held on 9 December in Resorts World Sentosa. Audiences - both offline and online - will be able to enjoy the talents of our youth, performing to help other youth who are less fortunate than them.

With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the two charities continue to face challenges in fundraising to help the thousands of beneficiaries under their care. We hope you may open your hearts and support ChildAid 2021 so that together, we can take care of our vulnerable children and youth during this period.

ST SPMF pays for socially disadvantaged school-going children's meals and transport fees, while BT BAF supports financially disadvantaged but artistically talented children's lessons in the performing and visual arts.

Donations will be eligible for 2.5 times tax deduction. ChildAid is jointly organised by The Straits Times and The Business Times.
