Taiwan Excellence Launches Global #SharingIsCaring Campaign, Offers Grant Opportunities


TAIPEI, Taiwan–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Few people believe that they possess the power to profoundly impact another individual, community, or a society. If this power is multiplied, each action becomes a movement that can transform the world to a better place!

In this spirit, Taiwan Excellence, an awards program celebrating and promoting top Taiwanese companies and products around the world, organized by Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) and Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), today announced its first ever “Sharing is Caring” global campaign, a corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative planned on a global level to harness the power of collective passions, expertise, and technology that will kick off with a virtual press conference on August 11, 2021, at 2:00 PM GMT+8 in Taiwan. The program’s objective is to make a difference in society by providing social innovators and change-makers a platform to execute their ideas. The campaign seeks submissions from individuals, NGOs, and social organizations that specifically address social issues, governance, and environmental protection.

“In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic that has turned the world upside down, Taiwan Excellence is determined to bring positive change through crisis,” said Mark Wu, Director of Strategic Development, TAITRA. “Spurred by the acts of kindness from neighbors, locally and across borders, the Sharing is Caring global campaign crystalizes our collective desire to emerge from the pandemic stronger and better, and to bring to fruition positive ideas to improve the world.”

Eligible individuals, NGOs, and social organizations are encouraged to apply at share-care.taiwanexcellence.org starting on September 1, 2021, through 11:59 p.m. GMT+8 time on Sunday, October 31, 2021.

The top three winning proposals will receive a cash prize of $10,000 USD each. Additionally, these top three proposals will receive a grant budget of $150,000 USD each, along with a partner assigned by Taiwan Excellence to execute their respective winning ideas. With such a massive sum earmarked to fuel the dreams of social innovators, change-makers from across the world are highly motivated to conceptualize projects to make the world a better place!

Entries will enter a qualification and guidelines review by an advisory committee. Up to 12 proposals will be shortlisted and the top three entries will be decided by the selection committee to receive an exclusive grant from Taiwan Excellence to work on their #SharingIsCaring idea. Extra points will be given to proposals that include Taiwan Excellence’s award-winning products and brands in the execution of their #SharingIsCaring proposal.
