Be a Host

Host 5 professional volunteers & receive MYR10,000 to grow your organisation’s impact

5 benefits for Host Organisations

Funds, manpower, tools, trainings, and much more…

Receive MYR10,000 funds

As a Host Organisation with VIP you will receive a grant of MYR10,000 for your organisation to develop and launch a new social impact project.

Learn from & work with 5 volunteering professionals

Every VIP Fellow will be thoroughly screened before being deployed into your organisation. Every Fellow must have 5+ years of working experience in an area relevant to your organisation. This way maximum value and impact is assured through your collaboration as a Host Organisation with the international Fellows.

Develop & implement a new impact project

Starting a new project or initiative takes time, effort, and resources. The Fellows will support you in developing an effective framework to ensure maximum impact and sustainability. The seed grant of MYR10,000 will help you mobilize and implement the project immediately.

Get exclusive access to the Incitement Nonprofit Toolkit

The Incitement toolkit contains easy-to-use plug-and-play finance sheets to manage your organisation’s finances, a guide on how to apply for 10,000 USD free advertising budget on Google’s search engines monthly, pitch deck templates to allow you to better present your organisation’s work to raise funds or grant, and an impact measurement tool called Hourglass™ developed by Incitement in collaboration with Taylor’s Education Group.

Attend free trainings from ASEAN’s thought leaders (Flights & accommodation to and in KL included for non-Malaysia Hosts)

Attend a 5-day induction week in a beautiful location in Malaysia, receive hands-on training from renowned thought leaders in the nonprofit sector, and have an opportunity to bond with your group of Fellows and network with high-profile individuals and leaders from within Malaysia.
