Centrum Club


Centrum Club is a philanthropy service from Centrum Global Partners. It’s an exclusive, invitation-only, private members’ club for individual and corporate members who help make the world a better place and get rewarded ethically at the same time through Social Impact Points (SIPs). Centrum Club is funded by a wide range of philanthropists, non-profits, socially responsible companies, institutions and organisations

Membership of Centrum Club is by invitation only. To request a membership invitation or to contact Centrum Club, email: cc@centrum.global



► What are the costs of Centrum Club membership and related social impact activities?

There is no net financial cost to members either in becoming a member or carrying out social impact activities through Centrum Club that generate positive social impacts. A member’s potential to carry out and/or engender specific social impact activities is the price that member 'pays' for being a Centrum Club member and for receiving the related benefits that Centrum Club membership affords. If a member does not have the requisite potential, they can’t benefit from Centrum Club membership (and thus will not be invited to become a member)

► What are the Centrum Club social impact activities?

There are a wide range of general and highly specific activities for Centrum Club members to participate in → all of which generates positive social impacts for society and the environment but which does not have a financial or other disadvantage to members or to the beneficiaries of the activities

Centrum Club is a philanthropy service from Centrum Global Partners. It’s an exclusive, invitation-only, private members’ club for individual and corporate members who help make the world a better place and get rewarded ethically at the same time through Social Impact Points (SIPs). Centrum Club is funded by a wide range of philanthropists, non-profits, socially responsible companies, institutions and organisations

Centrum VIP membership renews annually and is offered to individual members who originate or possess a specific number of SIPs each year. Membership of Centrum Club is by invitation only. To request a membership invitation or to contact Centrum Club, email: cc@centrum.global

Social Impact Point (SIP)


Centrum Club members generate multiple positive social impacts that benefit society and the environment → at no net financial cost to them. Some of these social impacts originate Social Impact Points (SIPs), which are presented to the relevant Centrum Club member by us in appreciation for their efforts to make the world a better place

SIPs can be exchanged by their owners for a wide range of discounted, ethically sourced, authentic, unique, exclusive, personalised, luxury and VIP experiences, holidays, products and services that reflect their ethical, social, religious and spiritual values → all paid for in full by Centrum. SIPs will often enable goods and services to be bought at discounted prices of at least 5% lower than the open market value. See Abercrombie & Kent for examples of luxury holidays

SIP owners can also sell their SIPs for cash or swap them for something else or gift their SIPs to others

Corporate SIP

Corporate SIP owners can gift their SIPs as a reward or ‘thank you’ to their customers, clients, employees, partners, suppliers, stakeholders, etc and (at the same time) show that they are doing a great deal of good for society. This leads to happier customers, staff, partners, better publicity/PR/CSR, etc → which ultimately leads to a better bottom-line



► How and why does Centrum pay for the luxury and VIP experiences, products and services that are exchanged for SIPs?

Centrum pays for this in full because it, ultimately, helps to foster greater social impact activities that lead to greater positive social impact outcomes → which benefits society and the environment even more. This is a financially and strategically sustainable model because the total financial cost of these services is relatively small compared to the total financial and economic outcome value of the positive social impacts generated by Centrum Club members. Centrum funds this from the support it receives from philanthropists, non-profits, socially responsible companies, institutions and organisations that work to engender positive social impacts across society

► Why are SIPs exchanged for such expensive, high quality experiences, products and services?

This enables SIPs to be prestigious and to be appreciated more when they are used or gifted, which ultimately helps to generate greater social impacts

► Does the environmental and social cost of these high quality experiences, products and services outweigh their benefits?

Not in relation to SIPs as all end suppliers of all luxury and VIP experiences, products and services that are exchanged for SIPs are ethically sourced and thus are environmentally and socially responsible companies

► Anyone can pay for luxury and VIP experiences, products and services themselves for their own use or to give as a gift to someone else - why do they need to become a Centrum Club member or use SIPs to do this?

SIPs don’t exist in isolation, they are the product of Centrum Club member activities that generate multiple, cascading positive social impacts that benefit society and the environment. Therefore, although anyone can pay for the services themselves without becoming a Centrum Club member, neither they nor those to whom SIPs are gifted will receive the primary benefit of Centrum Club membership and SIP origination → namely, the considerable social good that was carried out by Centrum Club members in order to originate the SIPs in the first place

Altruism+


Altruism is the unselfish regard for or devotion to the welfare of others (the willingness to do things that helps or bring advantages to others) with no expectation of anything in return, even if it results in disadvantages for yourself. However, this not need be the case in all instances

Tim Cook Quote

Altruism+ from Centrum is about reducing the downsides of traditional altruism (e.g. disadvantages for yourself) and increasing the upsides (your efforts maximised). Specific acts of altruism carried out though Centrum not only amplifies your efforts but it also removes any disadvantages to yourself

Moreover, it also enables you to encourage others to do good as well because you get rewarded/recognised for your efforts not by those you help, but by others who are independent of them (here, by Centrum) who wish to thank you for your efforts



► Can altruism be rewarded?

Receiving a reward for altruistic acts is anathema to many as it seemingly goes against the principle of altruism. However – again, this not need be the case in all instances

An altruistic outcome where you (the doer of good) are rewarded with the positive results of your altruistic endeavours and also, at the same time, a material benefit to yourself or to someone else from an independent and unconnected third party need not be mutually exclusive, especially if the material benefit in no way diminishes or compromises the overall intended positive results of your altruistic efforts. On the contrary, the receipt of material benefit should be encouraged if it helps to amplify the overall positive results

If you wish to (and can) avail yourself of these rewards, you can do so with the knowledge that this has not lessened the intrinsic value of your altruistic act in any way. On the contrary – it has most likely magnified them. You can also opt not use these rewards or pass them on to others, which in itself is a further act of altruism on your part
