The COC has issued a Code for Commercial Fund-raisers to strengthen fund-raising practices in Singapore. The Code incorporates the standards and practices prescribed by the Charities Act and its subsidiary legislation, as well as the professional standards which the COC expects commercial fund-raisers to adhere to. The Code also makes reference to the House to House and Street Collections Act, and its subsidiary legislation.
This Code was developed with inputs from key stakeholders of the sector, including the Singapore Police Force and commercial fund-raising companies.
