National University of Singapore (NUS)

This study maps Singapore’s charitable sector using annual reports published between 2007 to 2013 by the Commissioner of Charities. It describes the size of the sector and its financial health, as well as trends in the type of funding received by organization and by subsector. It also raises questions on fundraising strategies, the relationship between donations and economic conditions, and grants leading to ‘crowding-in’ or ‘crowding-out’ of other forms of funding.
