National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre


The National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) is an independent not-for-profit organisation that advocates giving in Singapore. Its vision is to be a Giving Nation and to cultivate a strong culture of contribution where giving is part of every Singaporean’s DNA. NVPC works closely with other charities, corporates, public sector agencies, institutions as well as the community to build a robust ecosystem to make giving simple, fun and meaningful. 

NVPC enables and amplify giving by influencing hearts and minds through:
  • Storytelling
  • Research
  • Recognising giving champions
  • Connecting & Convening givers & multipliers
  • Activating giving on a national scale

NVPC creates the national narrative on giving and stories that influence hearts and minds. They also conduct research on giving motivations and behaviours, create roadmaps and landscape of the giving sector, and aspire to be the go-to-place for giving. NVPC honours and recognise giving champions because giving is part of our culture and DNA that they want to model. They connect and convene to create networks and build communities to impact the giving space on a national level. NVPC activates giving and use strategies that multiply their impact on a national scale such as through national level giving campaigns.
