Something good is coming your way: Company of Good

Company of Good inspires and activates businesses to do good.  Launched in June 2016 by NVPC and supported by SICC, the programme focuses on helping companies to give back to the community more strategically, sustainably and impactfully.  Company of Good Founding Members include SICC members Keppel Corporation Ltd and Givaudan Singapore Pte Ltd.

In May, NVPC will launch the Company of Good Fellowship, a talent development programme to help companies like yours grow your top talents. Fellows will undergo learning sessions, practical action-projects, networking opportunities, and mentorship to develop strategies that will benefit both business and community.  Applications are open until Friday, 24 February 2017.  Click here to find out more.

As we shape the leaders of tomorrow, we also want to recognise leading organisations of today with the status Champion of Good. Companies of any size that practice good giving and are committed to influencing and multiplying giving are encouraged to apply. As Champions, you will inspire fellow companies with your drive to do good, gain access to platforms that grow your giving and network with like-minded businesses.  Applications are open until Friday, 3 March 2017.  Click here to find out more.

Companies interested to meet with charities and non-profit organisations are invited to our very first Giving Marketplace on Wednesday, 1 March 2017.
