Donate to WISE

Whatever the amount, your donation will enable WISE to keep the lights on as well as expand our activities in Indonesia and Cambodia. And eventually, the rest of Southeast Asia (we hope!).

Your donations help to subsidise the construction of latrines for low-income households in Phnom Village (Tbong Khmum, Cambodia), including Hai Hong’s (2nd from left) and Hom Nean’s (2nd from right) 📷 Andry Hamida (13 Jul 2018)

Please email to inform us of your donation, so that we can issue you with a digital receipt. We update our accounts about 1 to 2 weeks after the end of each month, therefore it might take up to 6 weeks for us to get in touch with you. We appreciate your patience!

Note that donations are not yet tax-deductible (we are working on it!).

How your donation will help

Our immediate aim is to raise sufficient monthly donations to cover ongoing operational costs, of which 81% goes towards feeding our 3 full-time and 2 part-time staff. 

Expenditure itemAmount (US$)
Salaries for 3 full-time and 2 part-time staff1,500
Co-working space and internet, Nagekeo (Indonesia)60
Website-related costs20
Corporate secretary and external auditor, Singapore (legally required)200
Total monthly expenditure1,850

At present, six donors contribute about US$200 per month to WISE.

We hope you can chip in too! Being able to promise our staff that we have the means to employ them on a permanent basis will enable them to focus on delivering impactful programmes and projects for WISE. 

Any amount you donate will help us reach our goal. If you can’t contribute monthly, do consider a one-time donation.

What about project costs?

At present, our strategy is to cover project costs through grants, as well as the occasional training and consulting assignments we secure. As we expand our donor base, we hope to be able to run some projects through donations, especially those that are less attractive to funders.

What happens after you meet the target?

Our current target covers the existing ongoing operational costs of the organisation. Our next targets will aim to:

  • Increase the salaries of our staff to better meet their living needs
  • Hire more staff so that we can run more projects and activities
  • Invest in scaling existing projects to different countries
