We’re proud to be a part of CSRNEWSSA‘s latest publication – COVID-19 CSI Response Magazine.

An article by our CEO, Gill Bates, titled ‘CAF Research: Africans Are Generous, Despite Financial Woes’ is on page 70.

South Africans give more than a third (35%) of their income to family, friends and members of their communities or charities. This is according to Charities Aid Foundation’s (CAF) Growing Giving in South Africa report, released in February 2020, which measures generosity behaviours in South Africa. The findings make it quite clear that despite financial pressures, people still want to give to those in need. The report looked at behaviours such as giving cash, volunteering and helping strangers.

‘Interestingly, The CAF World Giving Index 10th Anniversary Report, released in October 2019, found that the gap in giving between the Global North and the Global South has narrowed, and that proportionally, those with less typically give more,’ says Gill Bates, CEO of Charities Aid Foundation Southern Africa (CAFSA). ‘Africa is a fundamentally generous continent, according to the research – in all likelihood, driven by our Ubuntu philosophy.’

Donate to CAFSA's Emergency Fund to assist NPOs during the COVID-19 crisis

Charities Aid Foundation Southern Africa (CAFSA) has launched an emergency fund to support local Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) during this challenging period.

With the economic and health challenges emerging from the COVID-19 crisis, thousands of NPOs are set to be impacted by funding shortages, which will result in a reduction or discontinuation of services and dedicated staff losing their jobs.

To keep these critical services going, CAFSA is mobilising support to make funding available to help NPOs who render essential services to the most marginalised individuals, groups and communities in our society.

We are calling on both individuals and corporates to donate. The relevant bank details for donations are listed below.

CAFSA will process all donations and ensure that due diligence, governance compliance and reporting are fully implemented. CAFSA will further ensure that all donations are designated to validated beneficiary organisations. Donors will also be issued with Section 18(a) certificates for income tax purposes.
