Our vision is ‘to make giving and social investment a part of everyday life’.
We encourage and facilitate investment of money, in-kind resources and time, by companies, institutions and individuals. The ultimate aim of our work is to strengthen the effectiveness of the non-profit sector. CAF Southern Africa is committed to promoting and adding value to these contributions by encouraging cooperation, sharing innovation, and fostering leadership.
Our programmes include advice on social investment policy & strategy, grant management and administration services, research and advocacy and the encouragement of a culture of philanthropy. We also facilitate special focus programmes such as Mandela Day volunteering opportunities.
Our mission is to increase and enhance giving and social investment, and to stimulate the corporate sector to embrace developmental values and to support social entrepreneurs.
At CAF Southern Africa we believe that the NGO sector plays a vital developmental role by supporting positive social change in marginalised communities. Our ultimate aim is therefore to increase the amount and impact of investment in the non-profit sector. We currently have over validated 500 NGOs on our database (we conduct formal due diligence) and work with 22 corporate clients to facilitate effective CSI engagement.
