FAQ

1. If I make a donation, am I entitled to tax deductions? Are there instances where my donations are not entitled for tax deductions?

Dover Park Hospice is awarded the status as an Institute of Public Character (IPC). Any outright cash donations are eligible for tax deduction subjected to the current tax policy which is at 2.5 times. Donations are to be made by 31 December to be included in the tax assessment on the prevailing year.

Any sponsorship or in-kind donations that include the display of marketing collaterals are regarded as advertising and hence not eligible for tax deduction.

2. Will I receive a tax deduction receipt for my donation?

Yes, a tax deduction receipt will be mailed to your stated address within 3 to 4 weeks. During year-end period, our responses might take a bit longer.

3. What payment gateways are available if I want to make a donation?

We have partnered with PayPal, which provides a convenient payment gateway for you to use your credit cards to make a donation via this website directly. This gateway currently supports all local and international VISA, MasterCard and American Express credit card transactions.

However, if you would like to make a payment via SGQR Code, through supported mobile apps like e.g. NetsPay, FavePay, GrabPay, DBS PayLah!, OCBC’s Pay Anyone or Standard Chartered’s Scan and Pay.

For monthly GIRO donations, they should be deducted from your account in the last week of each month (27th to 31st). If monthly GIRO donors wish to change their donation amount, they will be required to fill up a new form and return the original form to Dover Park Hospice. Should donors wish to terminate their monthly donations, they should inform their respective banks for termination. For more information, please send an email to dph_fundraising@doverpark.sg.

8. What will my donation be used for?

Your donations will allow us to extend our circle of care to more patients and families. Our Home Care and Day Care services are free for all patients due to the support from both donations and government subvention. Our fees for our Inpatient services are also lowered due to support from donations making it more accessible to patients, especially from low-income families. We thank you for this meaningful gift to support our work.
