Join The B1G1 Giving Board to make a real difference.

CREATING THE WORLD FULL OF GIVING

B1G1 is a global giving initiative based in Singapore. It helps businesses around the world incorporate giving into their business model by providing them with a simple program and platform and access to carefully selected high-impact projects that resonate with them and their customers. Since 2007, B1G1 has worked with 2,300+ businesses which have resulted in over 140 million giving impacts.

B1G1 gives businesses the ability to make a real difference through effective giving. And it also provides tools and resources to make their giving habitual and connecting. 100% of giving made by B1G1 Businesses are forwarded to carefully selected high-impact projects.

HOW THE INITIATIVE IS RUN

B1G1 initiatives are currently run by two organizations. BUY1GIVE1 PTE LTD is a registered company in Singapore (it is a Social Enterprise and also a B Corp) and it runs the business membership program and promotes the giving program to businesses. B1G1 GIVING is a registered Society in Singapore which oversees the charity partner selection processes and the contribution management. This year, B1G1 is looking to move B1G1 GIVING to US and establish it as a US 501(c)(3).

In advance of this move, B1G1 is looking for 1-2 additional committee board members who can provide strategic guidance for establishing B1G1 GIVING in the US and for the ongoing improvement and development of the organization.
