Government Support for the Digitalisation of Singapore Charities and Social Service Agencies

ARE YOU A SOCIAL SERVICE AGENCY or CHARITABLE ORGANIZATION?
DO YOU WANT TO TAP ON GOVERNMENT GRANTS FOR DIGITALIZATION?

With digitalisation as the forward moving trend now, it is not just in the interest of commercial entities to adopt IT solutions to improve their productivity for profitable gains. Non-commercial organisations, such as the charities and social service agencies, will also need to embark on digitalisation quickly in order to improve their operational efficiency.

In view of this, the local government has initiated several funding schemes that support such non-commercial entities to also digitalise and adopt suitable software solutions for their operations.
