Organiser Best Practices
Here's a little insight into how we work and we thought that it would help you too!
How Do We Work?
Identify the social needs of various communities.
To identify and understand social needs of various communities through active engagement and constant dialogue with targeted communities.
Design bite-sized and purposeful programmes.
Design bite-size yet purposeful activities to address identified needs and create sustainable impact to the causes and communities.
Connect good people with good causes.
Promote and instil positive values such as kindness, the spirit of giving, self-reliance and better bonding to create a virtuous cycle within the community - all by connecting good people to good causes!
How Do We Select A Beneficiary?
Before we formally embark on a new working relationship with a beneficiary, our SOP (Standard Operating Procedure – a term commonly used during our banking days) was to perform KYC (Know Your Client) on the Voluntary Welfare Organisation (VWO).
So the BAU (Business as Usual) would be -
- Perform some due diligence on the potential VWO via internet or through friend’s referral
- Initiate at least a phone call followed with a face-to-face meet up to better understand the needs of the organisation
- Digest overwhelming information and assess if there is a positive match of what we can offer and what is needed
- Organise a customised event with VWO to confirm POC (Proof Of Concept)
- Once POC is confirmed, our partnership begins!
Talk about applying what you learn in the bank across the different sectors – our bosses must be really proud of us! Some of you may ask – why do you go through all this trouble when introducing a new VWO for partnership? It is simply because we want to be accountable towards our sponsors and volunteers who have placed great faith in what we do!
