Tax-deductible donations to Singapore’s sportsmen

I just visited SG Gives and am happy to find in its place.

Well done – the site is user-friendly and easy to navigate.

For 2016, I hope you can consider implementing donations to individual athletes who participate in solo sports.

The present process for donating to sports associations is excellent.

Would it be possible to include a function so our donations to these associations can be earmarked for specific athletes?

For example, users carry on with the existing process of clicking on the donate button for, say, the Singapore Tennis Association.

They would then be provided with a form field where they could type in the name of the specific athlete to whom they want to donate e.g. Sarah Pang.

I imagine this would greatly help both donors and individual athletes; the former group can enjoy its tax deductions, while the latter group can get the funding it needs to bring home sporting glory.

Perhaps this idea could be explored in greater depth together with the Singapore Sports Council and the national sports associations, if need be.

Thank you for all the great work you have been doing.

Have a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Best regards
