Here's Where You Can Donate Your SingaporeRediscovers Vouchers Now (October 2021)

profileJoel Koh

Here’s a Public Service Announcement (PSA): the SingapoRediscovers vouchers are set to expire in about two months on 31 Dec 2021.

If your SingapoRediscovers Vouchers (SRV) are still collecting dust and you have no idea what to do with them, why not consider donating them instead?

At the risk of sounding like a softie, I think that being able to give is a joy in itself.

Not to mention that giving is a subtle reminder that our existence improves lives, even if it’s just in a few little ways.

As such, here is how you can use your SRV vouchers to make a difference in someone’s life.

Do note that the information is accurate at the time of publishing. Do reach out to us at [email protected] if you have any other similar SRV donation initiatives you would like us to feature.

Impart is a non-profit organisation in Singapore that develops volunteers to empower youths facing adversity by helping them thrive through relationship-driven developmental opportunities.

Our formal operations began in 2017 with the simple desire to support a youth facing adversity through a key developmental transition. This youth-centric approach has stayed with us even through organisational scale, and it has remained our conviction that youth deserves access to quality resources and genuine relationships which help them make the most out of their developmental years.

Over the years, we have had the privilege of journeying with a wide span of volunteers, professional youth workers, and youths facing adversity. Some 300 volunteers have been connected with 200 youths to date, in collaboration with youth workers from 22 different social service outfits.

You can donate a ticket with your SRV vouchers for Impart beneficiaries to enjoy the NERF Action Xperience which costs $49 per ticket.
