After publishing our first Giving Guide on women’s issues in 2016, we have been working hard to bring you more critical and trustworthy information about charities in Singapore. It is our hope that this service begins to fill a gap in informed giving locally and contributes to developing the non-profit sector all around, so that charities are not only “doing good, but doing good well.” We are motivated by the fact that we’re not alone in this, and that we’re building on previous efforts on the ground.
On that note, we are delighted to publish over 50 profiles of non-profit organisations and programmes from Singapore and the region. The profiles provide information on their impact; strength and character; finances; governance and leadership; staff and volunteers; reputation and an overall summary. Most of the NPOs serve children and youths, but some are also working in sectors such as the arts, healthcare, etc.
Click here to view the profiles on our prototype site. They are meant to provide trustworthy information that encourage informed giving. The site also features 5 one-page sector briefs that are easy to read.
And of course, we’d love to hear what you think about it. Over the coming months, we will be seeking feedback on the prototype to inform plans for scaling up this initiative in 2018. Click here to tell us a thing or two!
