In order for the M1 Singapore Fringe Festival to develop and present ground-breaking, stimulating and engaging works, The Necessary Stage as the festival's organiser and all the artists and personnel involved rely on your generous donations.

We are a not-for-profit organisation that depends on your generosity and belief in our work to make the Fringe Festival a veritable success.

Donations are received during our fundraising events and donation drives, but are welcomed all year round.

In conjunction with SG50, the Government has increased the tax deduction for qualifying donations made from 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2015, to 300%. Furthermore your donation will be eligible for the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth's new Cultural Matching Fund that provides a dollar-for-dollar match for cash donations to arts and heritage charities.
