Earlier this year, NTUC First Campus (NFC) announced the launch of two programmes for low-income families and their children:
- A one-time Child Development Account (CDA) top-up for each eligible low-income child;
- An “NTUC First Campus Sponsored NTUC Membership Programme” to provide fully sponsored NTUC membership for low-income families.
An estimated 4,000 low-income families and their children will benefit from this support in 2021. The total spend is estimated at S$2 million for 2021 and will be funded by NFC’s’ Bright Horizons Fund. This is part of NFC’s efforts to give low-income families and their children additional support and a good start to the New Year.
Bright Horizons Fund Fundraising Initiatives
Programmes under the Bright Horizons Fund are enabled through the generous support of donors. Our initiatives are put together with a focus on providing learning and support programmes for children from low-income families. These programmes ensure that no child is deprived of a quality pre-school experience due to the financial constraints of the family.
We are mindful that unexpected circumstances can increase the hardships faced by low-income families, and we are pro-active in developing new programmes and extending additional assistance when the need arises.
Our fundraising efforts continue all year round to support the various schemes offered to low-income families. Please join us by donating to the Bright Horizons Fund to reach out to more children in need!

A Word from Our Beneficiaries
BHF has helped fund the cost of my son’s uniforms, and also enabled him to join field trips and celebrate his birthday with his classmates with a birthday cake. My son enjoys going to school. I am happy that he can learn in such a happy and caring environment. Thank you BHF!
