Individual Giving: The Holy Grail of Fundraising

At the tail end of last year, I tried to answer a question: Why do South Africans give?

If I could understand this, I could understand the complexity of individual giving, which on paper looked to be the next strategic step for fundraisers in South Africa (SA).

Securing regular donations from ‘Joe Public’ has long been the Holy Grail of fundraising.

It delivers predictable, unrestricted funding to the organisation, eliminating dependency on large donors and creating diversity in types of income.

South Africa’s 2012 National Budget Blind to Women's Economic Empowerment

A gender perspective of South Africa's New Growth Path (NGP), 2012 State of National Address (SONA) and the 2012 National Budget presented last week reveals a common threat they are gender blind. These three economic mirrors of SA's short and long term strategies do not reflect the different experiences, let alone the needs of women and men.

Political Party Funding: Legislation Should Regulate Donations

The caution concerned what he termed the ‘hyenas’. Here Vavi was referring to the predatory nature of many of the recent tender processes run by government, often plagued by corruption, nepotism and cronyism.
