Founded in 2011, Empact is a leading social enterprise with a mission to build the capacity of social organisations (referred to as non-profit organisations and social enterprises) in Singapore and the region. Our aim for our capacity building efforts is to empower these social organisations for greater impact. Through our cross-sector collaboration with sector developers, grantmakers, corporates and volunteers, we bridge the capacity gap of the social sector by channelling talents, skills and resources to co-create innovative solutions to address the various needs of social organisations. To date, Empact has impacted and empowered more than 1,000 social organisations in the region, with a contribution of savings amounting up to $7 million worth of professional services that have been rendered pro bono for the social sector. In 2019, Empact was selected as a finalist for the President’s Challenge Social Enterprise of the Year Award. This is the highest accolade for social enterprises in Singapore by the President of Singapore.
