The annual Charity Transparency Awards (CTA) give recognition to charities with good transparency and disclosure practices, which are important pillars of good governance.
Since its inauguration in 2016, SPD has been a recipient of the CTA and we are delighted to be receiving the award again this year. We were also a recipient of the Charity Governance Awards (CGA) in 2012 and 2016.
Charities are assessed based on publicly available sources of information such as annual reports, financial statements, governance evaluation checklists, website and social media platforms.
This year’s awards ceremony was held on 3 December 2019 at One Farrer Hotel where SPD Vice President, Mr Winston Ngan, received the award from Chairman of Charity Council, Dr Gerard Ee. A total of 67 charities were lauded for their transparent and timely manner in communicating information to their stakeholders.
“With the recognition over the years, we hope that more people will see that we are sincere in what we do, stakeholders would continue backing us, and new supporters come on board with us,” said chief executive officer of SPD, Abhimanyau Pal.
