How are we assessing non-profit quality in Singapore? What qualities should we look for? How do we control the costs of the assessment process? What does “good” look like?

Just Cause will be launching a website for donors in Singapore providing freely accessible, robust recommendations on great non-profits. Underpinning the recommendations on the website is a screening framework that assesses the overall quality and impact of individual non-profits.

Hosted by NVPC, this invitation-only roundtable will feature a presentation by Emily Perkin, Founder of Just Cause, who will share Just Cause’s experience in piloting its “Excellence Framework”. The presentation will be followed by an expert roundtable discussion facilitated by AVPN Chief Executive, Naina Subberwal Batra.

About the Speaker:
Emily founded Just Cause at the start of 2015 to promote excellence in the non-profit sector in Singapore. Her aim is to produce a freely accessible website providing robust charity recommendations to donors: bridging the information gap between great non-profits and donors who want to give effectively but aren’t sure how. This project builds on over ten years of consulting and practical experience in the social sector, particularly focused on impact assessment.

Her previous work includes conducting large-scale value for money assessments for central government; managing a knowledge network for charities in Japan and Afghanistan; and co-founding an award-winning social enterprise in London. She was Trustee of a recycling charity in the UK and regularly provides advice and training on impact assessment for non-profits in Singapore and the wider region. Emily was a practitioner Fellow at Imperial College London focused on community healthcare outcome measurement; she has a MA in Japanese Studies from Cambridge University and a Master’s in International Public Policy from Osaka University.
