The Singapore Giver: A Life Stage Perspective


How can we encourage people to give at various life stages? This presentation was first shared NVPC's inaugural Giving Matters Forum (2018).

People's giving patterns change as they transition from being youth, to mid-lifers, and to seniors. What challenges do givers face at each of these three life stages? What motivates them? How can we encourage people to continue giving across their lives?  

Shared at the inaugural Giving Matters Forum in Jan 2018, this presentation draws upon NVPC's quantitative and qualitative research. This presentation touches upon:   

  • The challenges faced by Youth, Mid-lifers and Seniors
  • How desires change across life stages 
  • Current giving behaviours at each life stage, and how giving can be further encouraged
