VWOs-Charities Capability Fund (VCF)
The Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) has appointed NCSS to administer the Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs)-Charities Capability Fund (VCF) since 2002. The VCF was launched to strengthen the capabilities of VWOs and to improve social services in Singapore. From April 2012, the VCF has been extended for another five years until March 2017 for NCSS member VWOs and MSF-funded VWOs.
VWOs are encouraged to submit more strategic and well-developed projects and training applications for VCF support. The higher percentage and quantum under the new tranche will be considered for bigger scale projects involving multiple agencies that can lead to significant impact in capability building to the sector.
All NCSS member VWOs and MSF-funded VWOs can apply for the VCF grants.
Funding will not be extended to projects/courses that:
General Funding Principle
|VCF provides co-funding for approved projects. The approved projects must not receive any other sources of government funding.|
|Successful applicants may be required to share the findings and/or recommendations arising from the projects and learning from training with MSF, NCSS and other VWOs as deemed suitable.|
The VCF Evaluation Panel assesses the applications, which are available via the links above. All VWOs and training providers are to adhere to the time frame for submission of applications for the respective grants. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
