The Decade of Giving

Happy New Year,

Welcome to 2020! We are gearing up for a productive and fulfilling year to inspire a decade of global action for achieving the Global Goals. 

Our aim is to synchronise the efforts of the philanthropy ecosystem over the coming decade to create a future that works for all. We invite you to engage with us in helping to shape these efforts by:

1.  Email us to engage with our ‘Decade of Giving Steering Committee.’ The primary role of this committee is to collaborate with the Maanch team to synchronise the efforts of the philanthropy ecosystem over the coming decade to create a future that works for all. 

2. Helping us to reach our goal of receiving 2,000 funding by the end of this first quarter by visiting our platform and giving any amount to any of our live projects!

We thank you for your continued support, lookout for more news and updates on our social media channels and we ask you to please help us spread the word about Maanch!

Best wishes,
Team Maanch
