Roundtable on understanding and assessing non-profit quality

On October 30th, Just Cause, in collaboration with the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre and Asian Venture Philanthropy Network, held a well-attended expert roundtable discussion on what “good” looks like in the charity sector.

The event centered around a presentation by Just Cause founder Emily Perkin on the experience of creating and piloting the organisations “Excellence Framework”. This screening framework assesses the overall quality and impact of individual non-profits using a variety of field-tested measures and the experience of a number of specialised consultants.

In attendance were representatives from NVPC, AVPN, major NGOs, philanthropists, major corporate foundations and others working in the non-profit sector, who provided lively discussion on what “good” looks like as well as excellent feedback on our own development at Just Cause. A key focus of the group was getting a better understanding of what the main measures are and why when assessing non-profit qualities in Singapore and abroad.

A huge thank you to our partners NVPC for kindly sponsoring the venue and AVPN for all their help in organising and facilitating the session!
