The Charity Council has released its refined Code of Governance for Charities and Institutions of a Public Character (IPCs). The new Code will take effect in respect of Annual Reports relating to financial years commencing from 1 January 2018. The Code aims to strengthen the governance practices of charities in Singapore, and enable them to be more transparent and accountable. To support charities in their implementation process, the Council and its partnering agencies will be rolling out a series of learning initiatives and enablers. Funding will also be made available through the VWOs-Charities Capability Fund (VCF) to help charities build up their governance capabilities.
