In response to various queries about private fundraising amongst the local Catholic community, please note that the Archdiocese of Singapore does not endorse or prevent private initiatives of fundraising.

However, private fundraising initiatives are:

1. To state clearly that they are private and not Church initiatives;
2. Not permitted to use any Church platforms or premises for promotion or advertising;
3. Not to be promoted by office holders in the Church using the auspices of their official position, parish or Catholic organization;
4. To inform and obtain the acceptance of intended beneficiaries and their governing authorities before the fundraising initiative is promoted;
5. Not to be promoted in a public manner amongst the Catholic community;
6. Advised to observe all regulatory requirements.
