Donorpedia: 一個由Time Auction義工團隊創造的捐助機構資源庫

非牟利機構的挑戰 — 尋找捐助機構的困難 71% 的非牟利機構表示尋找對其感興趣的捐助者是很困難的。* 為何籌款這麼困難? 其一因為香港沒有一個基金和撥款機構的中央名冊。 66%的非牟利機構認為香港的籌款環境相當不透明,令籌款成巨大挑戰,因為76%的非牟利機構指開拓新資金來源對它們十分重要。 解決方案 — 香港首個捐助機構資源庫 Time Auction是一個義工人才網絡,我們遂在網站張貼籌款研究員項目,招募一批義工就香港的捐助者進行研究,以協助非牟利機構更有效率地發掘潛在捐助者。 短短兩星期內,我們成功招募了21名義工展開研究,每人先選定一個慈善領域(例如動物權益、環保等),然後搜尋20個非牟利機構在公開網站的浩繁資料,包括網頁、年報、審計報告、活動刊物、鳴謝聲明等,從中找出它們過往捐助者的資料,輸入一個共享的Google試算表內。 日間這些義工的身份是學生、老師、公務員、投資銀行家、財務分析師、公關或其他,夜間他們全搖身一變成為「鍵盤戰士」,伏在電腦前進行偵探式工作,找出香港活躍的慈善家。他們建立了通訊群組,不時對話,以分享工作遇到的困難和解決心得,有時候更配合視像會議。隨着時間推移,眾人的群策群力漸見成果,一個龐大「有份量」的Google試算表出現了。 為確保資料準確無誤,我們另招募了10位義工,以覆查資料。一個前商業顧問接手統籌工作,另一程式開發員則就如何利用「無程式碼工具」快速建立網頁提供意見,一個市場推廣經理和一名公關亦加入,就推展項目的策略和執行提供協助。 經過一班義工620小時的工作,捐助機構資源庫終於誕生了!  Donorperdia是香港首個眾包的捐助者資源庫,讓你一站式瀏覽超過540個非牟利機構和社會企業可申請的慈善捐助機構、低調的家族基金、政府撥款及其他資金來源! 「希望我們小小的努力可以幫助您對我們的社區產生更強大的影響!」義工 Debbie Wong 說 。 85%的非牟利機構指一份機構資源庫,對其籌款工作很有用,這凸顯義務工作的影響力 — 透過匯聚一批有心人,我們從零開始建立了一份非牟利機構急需的中央捐助者名冊。 現在就瀏覽Donorpedia,一起發掘潛在捐助者! 您只需付出4杯咖啡的價錢,就可享受一批義工620小時研究的成果,將節省的時間聚焦放在其他籌款工作上。所有收益均撥作維護此網站、更新名冊,或未來協助非牟利機構及社企籌款的工作。 歡迎您的投入 由於Donorpedia是一項全由義工推動的項目,如果您認識一些香港的活躍捐助機構,不妨告訴我們!  如果你是一名捐助者,想尋找可靠的夥伴,以達成你的慈善志業,請聯絡我們,我們會為你連結一個朝氣勃勃、致力令香港更美好的的非牟利機構社群! 聯絡我們﹕ donorpedia@timeauction.org *數據來自於2021 年 7 月與 118 家非牟利機構和社企進行的調查。
