About Giving Matters Empathy Circles

We believe that Singaporeans want to make a difference, but lack knowledge of the issues and how to help. Giving Matters Empathy Circles bridges that gap. These bi-monthly conversations connect individuals with people in the know, including thought leaders, sector experts and practitioners. Giving Matters Empathy Circles is a spin-off of NVPC’s Giving Matters Forum, a thought-leadership and community-building platform for leaders and change-makers.
