Direct Debit Donor Programme (DDDP)

Direct Donor Debit Programme (DDDP) is designed to encourage individuals to give small donations to Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA) on a regular basis while supporting the Association’s current programmes and expanding our outreach services to cater to emerging needs due to the ageing population. To meet our fundraising needs of $2 million annually, ADA has appointed Apex Organization Pte Ltd (UEN No.: 201726884E) to represent ADA for our DDDP with effect from September 2018.

 

The funds raised will help ADA with its capacity building and help build up its reserves so that ADA will have the financial capability to bridge current social gaps and embark on outreach programmes to provide a person-centre model of care for persons with dementia and their caregivers.

 

DDDP is promoted face to face, an easily accessible and friendly method of giving members of the public a chance to find out more about ADA’s outreach services and community awareness work. DDDP is promoted at various places including events, shopping malls and busy bus or MRT interchanges throughout Singapore. All areas are submitted to NCSS for prior approval. The face-to-face approach also makes it easier for those who do not have the opportunity to contribute through other channels, such as visiting website or calling us, to express their support.

We have engaged Apex Organization Pte Ltd (APEX), a third-party commercial fundraiser, which sends small teams of field representatives to promote DDDP at pre-approved venues in Singapore. They can be identified wearing ADA uniform (green colour with ADA logo) and an identification badge with ADA lanyard.

APEX field representatives are only allowed to collect donations via credit/ debit card or cheques that are directly handled by ADA. No cash donations are allowed. All donation particulars are required to be completed on a DDDP Donation Form with the ADA logo. Upon completion of the Donation Form, donors should request for a copy of the form from the field representatives for their own retention and record purposes.

Yes. 100% of all the funds raised goes directly to ADA. DDDP is a safe and convenient way for members of the public to donate to us as we only accept credit card transactions and all the monies are debited directly into ADA’s bank account. ADA pays APEX a small fee for the work done. This fee adheres to the guideline under the Charities (Registration of Charities) Regulations, issued by the Commissioner of Charities and contributes to the programme’s overheads.

All our representatives on duty are dressed smartly in a green polo shirt and they carry an ID badge using the ADA lanyard.

They are also required to carry a copy of the CCA (Collectors Certificate of Authority), issued by NCSS, which details the name of each individual fundraiser. You can scan the QR code on the CCA or SMS “FR < space> (e.g. FR XXXXXXXXXX OR FR Alzheimer’s Disease Association) to 79777 for immediate verification.

Alternatively, you may also contact ADA directly and provide us with the full name or ID badge number of the representative you wish to verify.
