Sustainability of the platform
Unlike other charity fundraising platforms which generally take a platform fee from donations, GIVE.asia does not charge any platform fee. This is in line with our belief that help should not come at a cost.
Donors who love using GIVE.asia platform to support various causes choose to add an optional tip on top of their donations to help us sustain the costs of running the website.
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 even more people escape hardship.
