What does Disabled People's Association do?

Disabled People's Association (DPA) is Singapore's cross-disability non-profit organization advocating for a fairer society where everyone can participate in all aspects of life, from education and employment to social integration. They represent the disability community by providing a platform for their voices to be heard and ensuring their needs are represented at national levels. DPA works with decision-makers across political, commercial, and educational institutions to ensure no decisions impacting them are made without considering their perspectives.

Donation Income

Fundraising Efficiency

This indicates the cost to raise a single dollar. A lower cost suggests the charity is more efficient in its fundraising efforts.

Program Expense Ratio

This is the percentage of the charity's total expenses that are spent on its core programs. A higher percentage suggests that more money is going directly to the cause, rather than being spent on administrative or fundraising expenses.
