Charities to benefit from unspent CDC vouchers

Singaporean households will have the chance to donate their leftover Community Development Council (CDC) vouchers starting 1 December until 31 January 2024.

Minister for Culture, Community, and Youth Edwin Tong revealed that these donated vouchers will support the household’s chosen charity.

For last year’s initiative, around S$1.19 million worth of CDC vouchers from 2021 and 2022 were donated to 245 charities. These were from nearly 9,880 households. Mr. Tong announced this year’s donation drive during a CDC networking luncheon attended by about 300 guests from various charity organisations.

Similar to the previous year, households can donate their unused vouchers at vouchers.cdc.gov.sg, selecting their preferred charity and logging in via Singpass to complete the donation process.

Tong also highlighted that nearly 99% of Singaporean households claimed their CDC vouchers this year, with 88% using them at participating hawkers, heartland merchants, and supermarkets.

This year, each household received S$300 in CDC vouchers—S$150 for supermarkets and S$150 for hawkers and heartland merchants.

Next year, households will receive S$500 in CDC vouchers, with half for supermarkets and the remaining S$250 for hawkers and heartland merchants.

CDC mentioned that further details about the 2024 CDC voucher scheme will be announced soon.
