NCH is now in a process of expanding the number of regional business councils and reinforce the board of the business councils to make it to a network of leading Dutch business representatives. This worldwide network of business councils under the umbrella of NCH is unique in The Netherlands and makes NCH different from other trade promotion organizations. Almost in every regional business council the Dutch government is represented by an observer in order to stimulate public-private cooperation in these councils.

The Netherlands Charity Association


The Netherlands Charity Association has been an independent and non-profit organisation since 1968 and is officially registered under
S81SS0008A with the Registry of Societies of Singapore. Our purpose is to Support the underprivileged in Singapore and depends entirely on voluntary contributions.

 

The Netherlands Charity Association raises funds to support local projects and initiatives which benefit the underprivileged in Singapore. The Netherlands Charity Association relies on memberships, contributions from individual supporters and corporate sponsorship and fundraising activities. Without the help of our volunteers, who support the NCA with their time and effort, we wouldn’t be able to turn our fundraising activities into a success.

 

The most common fundraising activities of the Netherlands Charity Association are the the May Fair, Charity Garage Sale and the annual Charity Christmas Fair, which has earned itself a reputation as the only non-commercial Christmas Fair in Singapore.

 

The support of several sponsors enables the NCA to invite other local and regional charities to be represented. Besides a diversity of workshops, performances are arranged as well to raise funds to support the underprivileged.
