Resolve Foundation

Mission:  We exist to inspire, empower and connect emerging leaders to bring about inclusive social change.

Top needs:

• Multiyear partnership through large-scale grants (HKD 1-3 million per year) to maintain and scale up our programs and build our capacity to move our NGO from start-up to established phase, particularly over the period of our next strategic plan 2021-2024. We believe in accountable, honest and trust-based collaboration.
• Smaller grants (HKD 250,000 – HKD 1 million) to support our community-building work among Resolve alumni, mentors and support and Alumni Opportunity Fund, a small grants scheme to provide financial support to alumni so they can kick-start their projects and meet the needs in the community.
• Corporate collaboration with companies that are committed to meaningful impact, diversity and inclusion and can engage in a holistic partnership with us that encompasses: venue hosting of our workshops, speaking engagements for staff, pro bono projects (research, communications and legal) and some financial contribution towards fellowship.
• Skilled and committed long-term volunteers, particularly in the areas of fundraising, media & communications, graphic design, copy-editing, technology, accounting, training and facilitation, coaching and human resources.

 

Top 3 challenges:

• Adapting our programs and community outreach to the post-COVID world, balancing digital growth with returning to in-person events for community-building

• Diversifying our income sources, including forging strengthened and cohesive partnerships with corporates, monthly donors and peer-to-peer individual giving

• Talent recruitment, development and retention, not limited to the staff but also to our volunteering and internships, fellowship, committees and board as well.
