Often we get asked, what gave you the courage to start OmniRaise?
I think it comes down to three things.
Our Founders – Luke Heffernan (Left) and Aaron Norman (Right)
There was a clear need. NGOs need funds and marketing campaigns to the public are their lifeblood, yet there was no agency dedicated to supporting their marketing needs in Asia. Over half the world’s population live in Asia, so it was clear if they were going to achieve the most impact possible for their causes, NGOs here needed help.
We had a vision to change our industry – and grow it! In starting OmniRaise we really wanted to raise the bar and had a vision to do fundraising differently. If you look at lists of the most admired companies in the world, it’s dominated by technology or consumer brands – but why isn’t there one known and admired in fundraising and marketing? We wanted to build a company people would love and be proud to work at, creating formidable impact in this world.
We had the support. The conventional wisdom is don’t mix friends and business. Maybe that’s true for some -but we’d been working together in fundraising since uni, and had been friends and colleagues for over 15 years. Starting a business can be hard – staring over the cliff – but we were in this together from the start.

OmniRaise in Numbers
Tan Wui Le
“Knowing that I can make an impact whether it’s the improvement of processes, providing financials that bring meaning to users of the financials, overseas expansion, tax planning, mentoring / guiding team members etc.”
“I love working in OmniRaise because of its great culture that flows down from its directors. Everyone gets equal opportunities to learn, make mistakes, grow, and progress. Even in its pioneering stages of incorporation, OmniRaise develops well organizational structures in all its departments and continues to seek excellence as a world-class company!”
Leave No One Behind
We work to impact as many people as possible, and that means going places not many go to in our Corporate Social responsibility work. We chose to help small, local grassroots charities who don’t have the resources or infrastructure to work with us on marketing campaigns.
It’s our corporate social responsibility programs that make us strive to be our best selves every day. Being a fundraiser is not just about raising funds. It’s about truly wanting to make a change – no matter how small – in someone’s life. And we make sure we do that every day.
Our continued fights
Our Malaysia team volunteered to create a CSR project to provide the essential supplies and things in need in collaboration with SUKA Society and National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM). Our CSR projects and their impact are driven and initiated by our people. The goals are to support both children and the frontliners in Malaysia.
For Suka Society, a shortage of food banks for impoverished families and refugees with lower incomes could be expected due to the pandemic. We provided items aid and care packages for the COVID-19 which they need for children and families.
For NCSM, we wanted to support the Children’s Home of Hope and the frontliners who are working hard to provide home vaccinations. With the limited support, they need the help to sustain and provide for the families at the Home of Hope. So, we brought supplies they need such as rice and foods, medicines, face masks, adult coloring books, and more to help them! By easing the burden, NCSM could focus more on providing support for the children and their caregivers.
Malaysia, we’re with you!
We want to express our support for all Malaysians impacted by the recent floods. Seeing all the incredible efforts of the frontliners, local heroes and NGOs on the ground working tirelessly on flood relief efforts has been inspiring to us!
As a company, we’ve tried to do what we can by giving emergency leave to our staff and setting up an emergency relief fund for them to access. Any member of the OmniRaise team can access emergency funds for their families to help rebuild.
We’re also choosing to support Mercy Malaysia to give to a 20K RM company donation fund, combined with a personal Christmas donation of 40K from our Directors Luke Heffernan and Aaron Norman to support the victims of this emergency. Every day we rely on the generosity of Malaysians to support our clients’ important causes – now it’s up to us to extend generosity back to the communities we work in.
We hope that our donation, along with the others, could go a long way to providing emergency assistance for families in need. Together we can ensure that “no one is left behind”.
