Giving Week 2019 (1 - 7 Dec) - About Us

#GivingWeekSG: 1 – 7 Dec 2019

Together, Let’s Build a City of Good

 

Share your Time, Talent, Treasure and Voice.

Because we believe that little acts, when multiplied by millions, can make a world of difference.

 

The Vision:

The Giving Week national movement celebrates the spirit of giving and seeks to make giving part of our way of life. It is a time when brands, non-profits and people give and share their Time, Talent, Treasure and Voice to support any cause they are passionate about in all ways, big and small; a time where people give of their best to help each other. 

These are the little acts, when multiplied by millions, that make a world of difference and help us become a #CityofGood, a Singapore that Cares.

City of Good:

City Of Good is a vision of a Singapore where Individuals, Organisations and Leaders come together to give their best for others. Giving our best for others means moving away from a ‘me-first’ mindset and being other-centred. In short, a City Of Good is where we value people first and foremost. The National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC) is the steward of the City of Good vision.

THE BACKGROUND

Giving Week is part of #GivingTuesday – a global giving movement fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it is happening on 3 Dec 2019 this year.

The International Volunteers Day falls during Giving Week and is part of the giving celebration. Mandated by the UN General Assembly, it is held each year on 5 December. It is viewed as a unique chance for volunteers and organizations to celebrate their efforts, to share their values, and to promote their work among their communities, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), United Nations agencies, government authorities and the private sector.
