Beware of Street Fundraising Scam

Except the annual Flag Day on 27 October 2018, Buddhist Compassion Relief Tzu Chi Foundation (Singapore) and Buddhist Tzu Chi Merit Organization (Singapore) Ltd. are not organising any street fundraising events. If you encounter such activities in the public, please be vigilant and call our hotline (65) 65829958 for verification.

The recent fundraising activity, ‘Save For A Good Cause’ campaign, is to encourage the public to give rise to kindness and save a little each day in a Tzu Chi bamboo coin bank, to help those in need. Please note that information on all our fundraising activities will be published on our official English and Chinese websites, and all our volunteers soliciting donations will be in full uniform, with a valid fundraising permit issued by relevant government authorities.
