The Academy brings together Givers to learn, share, inspire and recognise. Givers are individuals or companies that drive social change, create positive social impact and change lives, through the work they do, the way they operate and the support they give. The aim of the Academy is to improve Corporate Responsibility and Philanthropic efforts for its members and for Malta.

The next steps for the Academy include:

- Membership drive

- Creating a Giving Report for Malta

- Providing resources and practical tools to help members on their sustainability and giving journey

- Connect Voluntary Organisations (VOs) to companies and philanthropists

- Identify the gaps and challenges within the sector and help improve things

- Work with Voluntary Organisations to understand their challenges and help build their capacity

- Work with and support companies and individuals on their giving journey

2023 will show more members meet-ups and two large events. An inspirational conference filled with interesting talks, workshops, an Impact Fair and networking opportunities will be held in the second quarter of the year, while an Academy Awards Ceremony will be held at the end of the year to recognise those doing good.

The Academy members are made up of a number of large and small businesses, start-ups and individuals. Anyone interested to become a member  can checkout the website: or contact us on
