Introducing Swire Trust Go-Givers Program — Volunteer Your Skills & Redeem Rewards!

1YpeHrnKmIEpIikma2cJjaw

With the support from our Principal Sponsor The Swire Group Charitable Trust, we were able to launch a skilled-volunteering matching platform in Aug 2020 and matched over 7,500 volunteers to support 465+ NGOs (as of Feb 2022)!

Together, we’ve also launched the Swire Trust Go-Givers Program which encourages skilled volunteers to support Swire Trust’s NGO partners, creating synergy with Swire’s philanthropic efforts.

About Swire Trust Go-Givers Program

From 2020 to 2022, the Swire Trust Go-Givers Program encourages skilled volunteers to support Swire Trust’s NGO partners and features different educational and experiential rewards that the volunteers can redeem with their hours.

10 “Swire Trust Go-Givers of the Year” will also be selected and rewarded every year based on the recommendations from the NGOs, volunteer hours committed and impact generated, raising the standard and awareness of quality skilled volunteering!
