Founded in 2012, Empact is a Singapore based social enterprise providing a range of intermediary and consulting services to not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises (collectively referred to as social organisations) through the utilisation of pro-bono volunteers, as well as providing advisory services to grantmakers and corporations. To date, more than 50 social organisations have benefitted from our range of services.
Our social mission is to facilitate the growth of impactful social organisations by working with various stakeholders (corporations, grantmakers, policy makers and individuals) who are interested to offer their skills and expertise to support social causes. We promote active citizenship through engagement of passionate and skilled volunteers seeking to dedicate their time and expertise to assist social organisations.
