About The Fund

Let's Support our Kids' Education

The Education Trust Fund or ETF is a community-driven fund that supports the education needs of children from disadvantaged Malay/Muslim families to ensure that every child gets the resources to succeed in school.

The objective is to provide financial assistance to children from low income Malay/Muslim so that no child would be denied the opportunity to get a head start in schools.  

ETF was initiated by the Malay/Muslim Members of Parliament in August 2002 to uplift the education of Malay/ Muslim children especially those from low-income families. Mr Goh Chok Tong, the Prime Minister then, endorsed its set-up in his National Day Rally Speech on 18 August 2002.

ETF subsidies spanned from Primary 1 to Secondary 5 students to tertiary students. To further support students in their educational pursuit, students who received ETF subsidies are offered academic support in a form of free tuition under the MENDAKI Tuition Scheme (MTS) or the Collaborative Tuition Programme (CTP). In 2017, ETF provides additional assistance to Malay Muslim students enrolled in Big Hearts Student Care Centre to defray the cost of monthly fee and programme fees. In 2019, more corporate donors, like Singapore Chinese Chamber of Commerce Foundation, SM Jaleel Foundation, Global Radiance Group and Mr Siddiqui, came on board to provide bursaries and scholarships.

With your help, we hope to raise $2 million yearly for this cause.
