San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 25, 2011
Give2Asia, a US-based public charity promoting transformative philanthropy for Asia, today announces a new partnership with Venture for Fund Raising in the Philippines. This partnership will help Venture for Fund Raising improve the fundraising capabilities of non-profits in the Philippines and other parts of Asia.
Founded in March 1999, Venture for Fund Raising has helped over 900 organizations from 24 countries to become better fundraisers in order to strengthen the quality of their charitable work.
“Strengthening the capacity of NGOs to fundraise will ensure their sustainability,” said Jennifer Lofing, Vice President of Programs at Give2Asia. “We are thrilled and have great hopes for this new partnership.”
Run by consultants and professionals with extensive fundraising experience, Venture for Fund Raising works towards providing non-profits with diverse funding sources that can attract more committed donors and volunteers. The organization provides support to Asian NGOs through training, consulting, research, awards, and access to information through a library and a fundraising congress.
Give2Asia’s Fiscal Sponsorship partnership with Venture for Fund Raising helps establish a U.S. presence for raising support, provides professional donor stewardship, and makes possible tax-deductible support for Asia-based groups. Give2Asia currently provides fiscal sponsorship to over 100 charitable institutions across the Asia-Pacific region.
U.S. donors can make tax-deductible donations online to Give2Asia in support of Venture for Fund Raising at http://www.give2asia.org/vffr, or by sending donations to “Give2Asia” by check, wire, or securities transfer.
Give2Asia combines exceptional stewardship with comprehensive, on-the-ground knowledge to promote actions benefiting Asian communities. Founded by The Asia Foundation, with more than 50 years of grant-making experience in the Asia-Pacific region, Give2Asia helps overcome the common challenges associated with giving overseas and has made possible US$150 million in donations since its inception in 2001.
