Making a donation to Singapore charity
If you make a contribution to a registered charity in Singapore, your donation is tax deductible against your income tax assessment. Furthermore, your donation will be deductible at 2.5 times the original amount.
For example, a $300 donation will mean $750 being deducted from assessable income.
Cash donations must be made to an approved Institution of a Public Character (IPC) or the Singapore Government for causes that benefit the local community. Not all registered charities are approved IPCs. Therefore, donations made to a charity without approved IPC status are not tax-deductible.
To check if the charity you want to donate to is registered - https://www.charities.gov.sg/Pages/Home.aspx
The amount is automatically deducted from income assessment at the time of your income tax submission in April each year
