What we do

The Majurity Trust is a philanthropic organisation that seeks to work with donors and charities to build a thriving and sustainable community for all in Singapore. We do philanthropy differently.

Why we do

At The Majurity Trust, we strive to bridge the gaps in our community that need attention. We believe in tackling the less-talked-about and often thornier issues by collaborating with our donors and partners. We value the power of the collective. We are constantly engaging with people who are driven to make a real difference in the social sector. This means being open and willing to look at issues differently. Read more about us at www.majurity.sg.

How we do

We address unseen needs. Many living amongst us struggle behind closed doors. We need to surface these unseen gaps and needs so people who struggle can get to where they need to be. It is also about the unseen struggles that grantee partners (charities, non-profits, social impact organisations, ground up groups) go through, many exist to meet gaps but also exist in isolation. We go beyond the grant. We have built a robust framework to ensure that we invest in the best people and proposals in the charity sector. So that our funds, charities and community groups can better work together to maximise collective social impact over time. We move quickly and accurately. We track commitment and utilisation rates to ensure we do not sit on donor dollars that are entrusted to us. 100% commitment rate within 12 months and 95% utilisation rate within 24 months. We optimise your donation. Is your donation really doing good? You track your investments. Do you track your giving? What returns are you getting? Is it making a difference?

While candidates with the above experience would be preferred, we are open to considering candidates from diverse backgrounds. We recognise that academic performance and experience alone do not define a person’s competencies or fit in an organisation. What matters most is having the right underlying character and attitudes. If you have not worked in the social sector, but you believe you have what it takes to excel, we would like to hear from you too! Tell us why you feel you have what it takes to thrive in this role!
