SHARE is the hassle-free regular giving programme of Community Chest. It empowers communities-in-need in Singapore to live with dignity in a caring and inclusive society.
Through the collective giving of over 2,000 companies and 250,000 individual donors, SHARE provides a reliable and sustained source of funds to run many critical social service programmes that require regular support.
To date, there are over 200 critical services offered to those in need, including special education, youth programmes, adult disability support, family service centres, eldercare and caregiver support.
Community Chest is an aggregator of resources in meeting needs within the sector. SHARE donations are disbursed to Community Chest-supported social service agencies and programmes
based on an optimal resource allocation method - where each social service agency receives the funds that they need.
In 2018, NCSS developed a framework to capture the impact of donors’ support, enabling our social service users to achieve the desired outcomes, in terms of opportunity, personal potential and social inclusion.
