FAQS

  1. Is there a minimum claim amount for each grant submission?

    The minimum claim amount for each grant submission is $500. There are two grant claim submission windows annually – April and October.
     

  2. Is there a time limit on when I can submit my claim after conducting the CSR activity or implementing the capability enhancement initiative?

    Organisations can submit their claim up to 12 months after the date of the receipt for the activity. For example, a CSR activity conducted in July 2016 can be submitted for grant claim up to June 2017 (you can choose to submit during the October 2016 or April 2017 grant call).
     

  3. Are there any deadline for the submission of the grant claim submission?

    There are two grant claim submission windows annually – April and October. All submissions must be received in hard copies before the end of that month. Applications received after the deadline would be reviewed at the grant window.
     

  4. If my corporate has not organised any activities during this grant call period, can the amount be rolled over to the next grant call period?

    Yes. For example, if your corporate’s planned CSR activity will be held in December, the grant amount will be rolled over and you can submit your grant claim in April the following year.

  7. Where should I send the grant claim submission package?

    Please mail the grant package to: SHARE As One Secretariat, 170 Ghim Moh Road #01-02 Singapore 279621
     

  8. Some of the expenses incurred for the CSR activities do not have receipts? How do we submit for disbursement?

    As these expenses would have been paid by the staff, you may submit the reimbursement documents as proof of payment for the expenses.
     

  9. Why does it take 3 months to process the grant claim?

    To ensure due diligence in the verification process, we require time to check the approved CSR activities and claim amount. Grant claim submissions which missed the deadline will be submitted automatically at the next grant call. For example, if your submission is in November, it will be considered as a submission for the April grant call.
     

  10. Why are CSR activities conducted overseas not supported by the matching grant?

    This is to ensure that the local charities and social service agencies benefit from the CSR activities supported by the matching grant.
     

  11. Why are direct fund-raising costs not supported by the matching grant?

    SHARE As One aims to create more volunteering opportunities as part of corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts. Hence, the matching grant seeks to create or enhance volunteering platforms.
     

  12. Can businesses claim the Community Chest SHARE As One matching grant and the enhanced tax deductions under Business and IPC Partnership Scheme (BIPS) on the same CSR initiative?

    A single CSR initiative may benefit from either the SHARE As One matching grant or the enhanced tax deduction under BIPS, but not both. Read more here.
     

  13. Which scheme is more attractive for businesses who want to do CSR?

    This depends on the business’ CSR objectives. A business who wants to encourage its employees to donate (cash) more regularly may find Community Chest SHARE As One matching grant more attractive. It also provides some funds for them to organise CSR activities thereafter.

    On the other hand, a business which wants to kick-start CSR, and is supportive of its employees volunteering during working hours may find BIPS more attractive. Other considerations include the business’ assessable income of the year.
