Thank You SMACF Donors!
Many thanks SMACF Donors! Your generosity has been very important to us as we strive towards helping more needy students through our bursaries. Thank you also for your invaluable feedback on the issuing of Tax Deduction Receipts (TDR). We are pleased to share that, like you, SMA Charity Fund (SMACF) would like to play our part in being environmentally friendly and it is with this in mind that we have ceased issuing TDRs effective January 2020. However, if you would like us to send you your TDR, please email us at and we will be happy to oblige. Please continue to support us by donating on our donation portal at Take care & Stay Safe!


SMA Charity Fund in brief



The SMA Charity Fund, the Singapore Medical Association’s (SMA) independent charity arm, is an Institution of a Public Character (IPC) and charity in Singapore. Both SMA and SMACF believe in giving back to society, and encourage SMA members to do the same. We are firm in our goal of addressing the myriad needs in the medical and public health landscape.

Through a four-pronged strategic approach, SMACF endeavours to develop a compassionate medical profession that contributes towards better healthcare in Singapore:

1)  Providing Financial Assistance: Provide financial assistance to support the living expenses of needy medical students in Singapore.
2)  Advocating Volunteerism: Promoting volunteerism amongst the medical profession.
3)  Supporting Learning Exposure: Providing needy medical students equal opportunities to gain international exposure and experience for better health outcomes for the public.
4)  Recognising Mentorship: Acknowledge and award exemplary mentors who have made a significant difference to the development of their students. 

Only with your support are we able to enable bright student like Mr Lau Lagarfeld, a Year 2 student at Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine, to learn and serve the community and patients. When it seems impossible for young Lagarfeld to pursue his dream in medicine when his father was retrenched but, against all odds, Mr Lau worked hard and made it possible for Lagarfeld by taking on additional part-times jobs to make ends meet. Here is their story.
