Q.

We have a charity organisation. How can we be part of the B1G1 program? 

A.

If your organisation meets the criteria of the program, you can send in your application via this page. B1G1 Giving assesses each application based on the criteria as well as the suitability and uniqueness of the projects to ensure the right balance of projects in B1G1. Currently, we are actively accepting applications from charity organisations that have high-impact project activities in North and South America, Europe and Oceania. If you have questions, please contact us.

The application form itself takes about 40 minutes to complete once you have the required information.

Q.

Does it cost me anything to be a part of the B1G1 Worthy Cause Program? What’s required to be a B1G1 Worthy Cause?

A.

There is no fee to be part of the B1G1 Worthy Cause program, since the operation of B1G1 is fully funded by the Business Membership Program (you can learn more about B1G1’s business program here). 100% of contributions from B1G1 Businesses will be remitted to you for your project activities, and we also top up processing fees charged by banks. In order to continue receiving funding from B1G1, your responsibility will be to submit periodic updates on your project activities as well as to submit your audited accounts and annual report to B1G1 Giving each year. These updates and documents are likely what you already have. And there are other optional opportunities for B1G1 Worthy Causes to share tailored updates to B1G1 Members through various events and online communications that are facilitated by B1G1.

Q.

How long will my application take to be processed?

A.

It normally takes 2-3 months for the assessment based on the timing of your application. For example, applications received in the month of May will be assessed by the B1G1 Giving Board in June. The initial outcome of the application would generally be available by the 3rd or 4th week and will be informed via email. It may also take extra time for the Financial Review following the initial approval if there are additional questions to be clarified. If an application is approved, the project listing process will begin and the new projects are expected to be available within 2-4 weeks from date of approval. Please note that the speed of assessment and project listing would vary depending on the clarifications required to confirm the right projects to be listed. If any required information is missing, it may significantly delay the process.
