Important Fund Raising Notice
Many of supporters have come forward sharing encounters with individuals who identify themselves as reformed offenders or volunteers trying to sell key chains, soft toys and ice-cream.
We would like to reiterate that the Yellow Ribbon Project nor Yellow Ribbon Fund is not conducting any public fund-raising and we have not authorized individuals or groups to do so in public on our behalf.
Acting Culture, Communications & Youth Minister, Lawrence Wong recently announced the SMS verification service for members of public to check against existing fund-raising activities. Charity organizations who are licensed to solicit funds in public would be granted a Collector’s Certificate of Authority from National Council of Social Service, or a copy of the police permit. Individuals can verify the authenticity by either scanning the QR code on the permit or sending in a SMS to MCCY Charities Unit with the following:
“FR‹space›‹NCSS Approval No.›” to 74688
