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
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the livelihood of many Singaporeans. Since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, we have seen the needs for our low-income families increase substantially in this challenging year.
The Bright Horizons Fund has specifically implemented several initiatives to address the needs of low-income families, with a focus on the financial, social, and health and nutrition challenges that they may face due to a lack of resources during this pandemic period.
We are continually raising funds for these support services all year round. 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!Mrs Yong
