The birth of SMA Charity Fund and its milestones

The SMA Charity Fund (SMACF), 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:

Providing Financial Assistance

Provide financial assistance to support the living expenses of needy medical students in Singapore

Advocating Volunteerism

Promoting volunteerism amongst the medical profession

Supporting Learning Exposure

Providing needy medical students equal opportunities to gain international exposure and experience for better health outcomes for the public

Recognising Mentorship
