The Independent Code of Governance


The Independent Code of Governance for Non-Profit Organisations in South Africa was launched in Johannesburg on Wednesday 25 July and in Cape Town on Friday 27 July 2012.  The Code is the first of its kind to be collectively developed by non-profits themselves, and the first that can be applied to the whole sector.


The Independent Code represents a statement of values and principles to which all non-profit organisations in South Africa are invited and encouraged to subscribe. The Code does not constitute an official document, nor is it imposed by law.  However it does make provision for a formal written commitment in terms of which an organisation may record its voluntary commitment to subscribe to the core values and core principles of good governance.  


Working Group:

Shelagh Gastrow (Executive Director : Inyathelo)

Colleen du Toit (CEO : Charities Aid Foundation Southern Africa)
