Tote Board started a structured fundraising programme in 2006 with the core purpose of galvanising and encouraging the community to contribute to worthy causes. The funding by Tote Board gives VWOs and organisations a boost to initiate and achieve their fundraising targets.
Following an increase in its funding cap from $20,000 to $50,000 two years ago, Tote Board’s contribution towards fundraising continued to be substantial and significant in FY2015, having pledged a total of $15.75 million towards supporting 315 events.
Tote Board’s funding helps the organisations build on their success, and serves as a catalyst to encourage more organisations and groups to step forward to raise funds, in order to better meet the needs of the underserved in our community.
In FY2015, Tote Board worked with various organisations in their fundraising endeavours, which included non-profits, educational institutions, private sector companies, arts groups and sports bodies, among others.
Through a wide range of activities such as stand-up comedies, theatre shows, operas, fancy dress contests, concerts and charity golf tournaments, these organisations closely engaged the public, lifting community spirit and building a more inclusive, vibrant and resilient Singapore.
The number of fundraising events supported and funds pledged through Tote Board’s structured fund-raising programme have progressively increased over the past four financial years. Find out how you can apply here.
