Encouraging Collaboration and Synergy to Achieve Sustainable Development Goals
Filantropi Indonesia (Indonesian Philanthropy Association/FI) held a General Meeting of Members (RUA) on 28 February 2023 and invited all FI Members to the meeting. In the agenda of this year’s RUA, there was no escape from ratifying new members who joined until February 2023. The representative of the executive board of Filantropi Indonesia also presented an annual report on FI activities carried out in 2022 and our work plan for 2023 to all members.
This time the RUA 2022 activity invited Alfatih Timur, Co-Founder and CEO of Kitabisa, moderated by Okty Damayanti, in an inspirational talk, “Patterns of Donation and the Potential of Digital Fundraising in Indonesia.” In his presentation, the fact is that the development of philanthropy in Indonesia still has great potential to explore patterns of collaboration or exploration of other bigger actions. ‘Mas Timmy’, as his name called, the crowdfunding trend is still in demand as a fundraising platform that is massive, immediate, and covers sectors of society that can only help with small amounts (micro giving). Significant participation between philanthropic institutions, the government, and the community strengthens the fundraising ecosystem.
