SimplyGiving is Asia’s crowdfunding platform for social impact. Their goal is to build a generous society in Asia, to help advance issues and causes in Asia and globally. They do this by building a community of fundraisers in Asia to give back to Asian causes that support the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Companies are great contributors to Peer-to-Peer fundraising; SimplyGiving is introducing “Battle of the Bosses” as a virtual fundraising campaign that encourages the collaboration between corporate and Nonprofits/Social Enterprises. This campaign will run for 10 months. SimplyGiving believes that the Battle of the Bosses will achieve a number of results:

  • Help Nonprofits in Asia raise more funds.
  • Get companies involved in GivingTuesday, in an easy and fun way.
  • Raise awareness and advocate for the Nonprofits the companies are supporting.
  • Create a generosity movement among the employees and business networks of the companies that participate.
  • Get the companies to match the donations raised.
