With the support of the Rockefeller Foundation we are proud to announce the 2017 Social Impact Awards, which will be presented at IFC Asia, our premiere event in the Asia Pacific region.

The Resource Alliance has been presenting the NGO Awards in Thailand, India and Vietnam for 10 years, but 2017 marks a substantial change in the award program’s focus and delivery.

The change is intended to honor efforts from all sectors that work toward creating positive, lasting change in the Asia Pacific region: NGO, CSR, individual philanthropy, social enterprise, fundraising, volunteerism, and others.

Transitioning the Thai NGO Awards to the Social Impact Awards recognises a new paradigm for social change – creative collaboration that creates real change and sustainability.
