How do I determine which Self-Help Group my employee should contribute to?

You are expected to request for your employee's race/religion to determine the correct Self-Help Group (SHG) to contribute to. For employees with double-barrelled race, you can refer to the first component of the double-barrelled race on your employee’s NRIC to ascertain which SHGs fund your employee should contribute to.

Employees who do not wish to contribute or wish to contribute a different amount can contact the respective SHGs for more information.

You can refer to the following examples on how to determine the correct Self-Help Group (SHG) for your employees:

Employee’s race indicated on NRIC is Indian-Chinese

As the first component of the double-barrelled race indicated in your employee’s NRIC is Indian, your employee will need to contribute to the Singapore Indian Development Association (SINDA) Fund.

However, your employee can choose to contribute to both funds, SINDA and Chinese Development Assistance Council (CDAC), by informing you of their preference.

Employee is a Muslim and race indicated on NRIC is Indian

Your employee will need to contribute to both SINDA and Mosque Building and Mendaki Fund (MBMF).

Employee is a Muslim and race indicated on NRIC is Indian-Chinese

As the first component of the double-barrelled race indicated in the NRIC is Indian and your employee is a Muslim, your employee will need to contribute to both SINDA and MBMF.
