Ask and check before donating money to charity

TNP, 7 Sep 2018, Ask, check before donating money to charity

What donors can do

Some questions to ask before giving
•Who are the beneficiaries?
•What will my donation be used for?
•How can I receive updates?

How to check if the fund-raiser is legitimate
•Go to the Commissioner of Charities website, charities.gov.sg, to find out if the group is registered as a charity.
•Use your phone to scan the QR quote on the fund-raising permit that the fund-raiser carries to find out if the charity has a valid permit to raise funds from the public.
•SMS FR licence number, the permit number or the name of organisation to 79777. You will get an SMS reply to verify if the fund-raiser is legitimate.
