What is GIVE.asia?
Founded in 2009, GIVE.asia is one of Asia's oldest crowdfunding platforms. GIVE.asia is a free platform for individuals, groups & organizations to raise funds for charities or personal causes.
GIVE.asia works with numerous charities across Asia and has also been the official charity fundraising platform for big sports events like Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore. Hundreds of thousands of people have used GIVE.asia to raise tens of millions of dollars for various charities and individuals who are in need.
GIVE.asia is a free platform that does not take any transaction fees from the donations, unlike other platforms. All donations made on GIVE.asia (minus transaction fees charged by payment gateway provider) go to the bank account chosen by the charity or the individual fundraiser. To be sustainable, GIVE.asia rely on small optional donations from donors to help cover our operating expenses and help us pay for things like website hosting, accounting, bank charges, supplies, and staff.
GIVE.asia is privately funded by GIVOLA Pte Ltd (Reg No: 200915362M) whose registered office is at 1 Liang Seah Street, Liang Seah Place, 189022. As a private limited company, it follows requirements of a private limited company. We keep records of all transactions so that if there is a request by the government or regulating bodies, we can comply by sharing our recorded information.
The first few years, GIVE.asia was entirely self-funded by the founders themselves and grants from organizations like Singtel, DBS, Community Chest, etc. Only recently we could make GIVE.asia sustainable, thanks to the tips of kind-hearted people who see the potential of GIVE.asia to help others escape hardship.
