January 2023: An update regarding the Chapel & York Singapore Foundation


Donor-Advised Funds (or ‘DAFs’) are funds which Donors establish with a Foundation to support organisations worldwide. The Donor is entitled to local tax benefits when donations are made to the relevant Foundation.

There are two types of Donor-Advised Fund (chosen when completing your application after payment):

Funded DAF – the donor establishes and funds a DAF. The donor may then suggest grants from the Foundation to charitable organisations as and when desired.

Unfunded DAF – A donor or donors may set up a Fund with no initial deposit. The donor(s) may then add monies as they wish, including inviting others to contribute to the Fund. The donor(s) then suggest charitable organisations to receive grants from the Fund as and when desired.

The benefits of a DAF are:

  • Name your Fund as you wish – subject to local restrictions
  • Listed as a DAF on the Foundation’s generic donation page’s dropdown list
  • 1% retention rate on all donations
  • Immediate notifications for donations made online via credit card, if appropriate
  • Monthly report of donations received and DAF balance in the months when donations are received into the DAF
