About the Campaign

Spread the joy this festive season and donate your Raya packets to underprivileged children to support their education.

We seek your support for the Education Trust Fund (ETF), a community driven fund that supports the educational needs of students from low-income families. ETF administers schemes such as the ETF - ITE Start-Up Cost, Big Heart Student Care Subsidy.

These schemes aim to complement existing national schemes such as the MOE Financial Assistance Scheme.

You can make a difference by donating today. Your contribution will go towards helping us provide educational resources for these students so they can get ahead in life. With your support, we can make their dreams come true.

All contributions to this campaign will be matched with a dollar-for-dollar matching grant by the Singapore government. All donations above $20 will also be eligible for a 250% tax deduction.

Double your impact in transforming the lives of disadvantaged students by making a donation today!

May you be rewarded for your kindness and generosity. We would also like to wish all our muslim donors a Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

Description

Yayasan MENDAKI (Council for the Development of Singapore Malay/Muslim Community) is a pioneer Self-Help Group formed in 1982 dedicated to empower the community through excellence in education, in the context of a multi-racial and multi-religious Singapore. In 2002, MENDAKI streamlined its focus along four key areas of Education, Youth, Family and Employability.

MENDAKI helps to administer the Education Trust Fund, which is a community-driven fund that supports the education needs of children from disadvantaged Malay/Muslim families to ensure that every child gets the resources to succeed in school.

ETF subsidies spanned from Primary 1 to Secondary 5 students to tertiary students. To further support students in their educational pursuit, students who received ETF subsidies are offered academic support in a form of free tuition under the MENDAKI Tuition Scheme (MTS) or the Collaborative Tuition Programme (CTP). In 2017, ETF provides additional assistance to Malay Muslim students enrolled in Big Hearts Student Care Centre to defray the cost of monthly fee and programme fees. In 2019, more corporate donors, like Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce Foundation, SM Jaleel Foundation, Global Radiance Group and Mr Siddiqui, came on board to provide bursaries and scholarships.
