Accessing CSI Funding

The South African Growth Institute (SAGI) was established to bridge the gap between the private sector and the non-profit sector by providing NGOs with the necessary tools to creatively and effectively access funding from the private sector.

SAGI is hosting a special one-day seminar for NGOs in Gauteng on Tuesday, 25 June 2013 (08h00 - 15h30), at the Indaba Hotel in Fourways, Johannesburg.

Leveraging Latent Capital to Foster Sustainability

We are living through difficult times. Austerity measures by governments in Western Europe and North America have seen the coffers of local non-governmental organisations (NGOs) depleting. It has been widely discussed as a season of sustainability challenges for most NGOs. Owing to our reliance on foreign funding, austerity has apparently dented our sustainability. I, however, do not readily share into that perspective of sustainability. Perhaps the greatest challenge is defining sustainability itself. Yes, semantics can be the difference between survival of NGOs or their death.

NGOs Urged to Use Lotto Funding to Create Jobs

The National Lotteries Board (NLB) has urged non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to create jobs with the grants it awards to them.

Speaking at the National Lotteries Board Indaba and Inaugural Awards in Johannesburg, NLB chairperson, Prof. Alfred Nevhutanda, warned the beneficiaries to be transparent and accountable to avoid getting into trouble with the law.

Lack of Funding Threat to NGOs - Ntuli

The Department of Social Development says that there are 85 000 registered non-governmental organisations (NGOs) on its database, with 18 000 organisations added annually.

Speaking at the National Lotteries Board Indaba and Inaugural Awards in Johannesburg, the department’s deputy minister, Bongi Maria Ntuli, pointed out that during the Nonprofit Organisation Summit, which was held by the department in 2012, it became clear that all the NGOs – who continue to provide services to the communities, operate under the environment characterised by lack of funds.

Bill Aims to Improve Lotto Distribution

The Minister of Trade and Industry, Rob Davies, says Cabinet has approved the Lotteries Act Amendment Bill, which is aimed at reforming the lottery system.

Davies pointed out that the Bill is aimed at dealing with challenges such as the strict requirements for non-governmental organisations, poor relationship between the National Lotteries Board and the beneficiaries, and the delay in the distribution of funds, among other things.

NGOs Challenged to Make NLB Work

The Alliance of Youth NGO (AYONGO), an umbrella body of youth non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in South Africa, says South Africa needs to have events such as the National Lotteries Board (NLB) Indaba and Inaugural Awards, so that NGOs can find solutions to challenges such as the delay in the distribution of grants.

AYONGO chairperson, Kenneth Thlaka, who described the NLB as ‘our local agency’, urged NGOs not only to criticise when necessary and to also contribute to finding long-lasting solutions to the challenges it faces in order for it to work for all South Africans.
