During Global Pro Bono Week, Empact will be kick starting the pilot of Taproot+ in Singapore, with support from National Volunteer & Philanthropy Center (NVPC) and Singapore Center for Social Enterprise (raiSE). This is the first market Taproot+ is expanding to outside of the US and we are excited to test the model and encourage charities and volunteers to use – and benefit – from the platform.
In essence, NGOs and skilled volunteers in Singapore will be able to access a version of Taproot+, specifically designed for Singapore NGOs and volunteers. Empact will provide local customer service and support.
“We truly believe in the potential of unlocking critical skillsets from volunteers in the community to build the capacity of social organizations. We are excited to build on the proven success of Taproot+ to help with the ‘matchmaking’ process. This will ultimately help us to scale outreach and impact in Singapore, beyond this pilot. » – Peter Yang, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Empactcheap motilium
