Giving Week 2016 returned on 29 November 2016. Giving Week, an extension of Giving Tuesday, is a national giving movement catalysed by the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre (NVPC). Singapore is the first and only country in Asia to organise Giving Tuesday back in 2013. Last year, NVPC decided to extend a day of giving into a week of giving. Giving Week 2016 runs from 29 November 2016 to 5 December 2016.
During this week, corporates, non-profits and individuals across Singapore came together to make a difference by supporting a charity of their choice through donating, volunteering and/or fundraising. Local celebrities and influencers also showed their support for Giving Week 2016, including Nathan Hartono, Paul Foster, Anita Kapoor, Andrea Chong, Divian Nair, Claire Jedrek, and Malaque & Syarif who shared about Giving Week on their social media channels.
