Be a Donor


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 a veritable success.

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

The Government has extended the 250% tax deduction for qualifying donations made from 1 January 2016 to 31 December 2021. 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.
