About the Commissioner of Charities
The Office of the Commissioner of Charities (COC) was set up on 1 July 2006. Together with our five Sector Administrators, namely the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Social and Family Development, People’s Association and Sport Singapore, the COC registers and regulates charities and Institutions of a Public Character (IPCs). The vision of the COC is to nurture a well-governed and thriving charity sector with strong public support. To achieve this, the COC regulates charities by advising them on how to operate in compliance with the requirements of the Charities Act and subsidiary legislation and how to maintain high standards of governance and internal controls. It also regulates all private and public fund-raising appeals in Singapore, be it for local or foreign charitable purposes, with a view to promote transparency and accountability in the appeals administered.
