RFP — Fostering stronger ties between SA, USA

CAFSA REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS AND BIDS   – FUNDING FOR PROGRAM PROPOSALS THAT STRENGTHEN TIES AND BUILD RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN USA AND SOUTH AFRICA

Charities Aid Foundation Southern Africa (CAFSA) is an independent non-profit organisation (NPC Number: 014-831) (PBO: 930002036) that promotes and facilitates effective giving, volunteering and social investment. CAFSA has been represented in South Africa since 1997 and in 2000 became a registered Section 21 not-for-profit and public benefit organisation.

CAFSA is pleased to announce a Request for Statements of Interest (RSOI) from organizations interested in applying for funding to support program proposals that foster stronger ties and build relationships between the USA and South Africa. The programs will be showcased at American Corner Cape Town, South Africa.

We are specifically looking for projects that prominently feature a strong American element or demonstrate connections with American experts, organizations, or institutions. These connections should go beyond any involvement with the US State Department or its American Corners. The primary goal of the proposed projects should be to promote a deeper understanding of USA values, perspectives, and policies, while actively facilitating relationship building between Americans and South Africans.

We invite interested organizations to submit their Statements of Interest, highlighting their proposed programs and how they align with the objectives outlined above. This is an exciting opportunity to contribute to the promotion of mutual understanding and collaboration between our two nations. Examples of  programs include, but are not limited to:

  • Academic or professional speaker programs involving an American speaker, either in person or virtual.
  • Artistic and cultural programs, joint performances or exhibitions involving the work of American artists or American subject matter.
  • English language learning, educational advising, alumni activities, cultural programs and information about the United States.
  • Introducing new technologies and 21st-century digital skills that have been developed by USA. 

Programs that are specifically excluded for from this RSOI are:

  • Programs relating to partisan political activity;
  • Charitable or development activities;
  • Construction programs;
  • Programs that support specific religious activities;
  • Fund-raising campaigns;
  • Lobbying for specific legislation or programs;
  • Scientific research;
  • Programs intended primarily for the growth or institutional development of the organization; or
  • Programs that duplicate existing programs.

Length of performance period:  up to nine months

Number of awards anticipated:  dependent on availability of funding and amounts requested.

A proposal with charge rates should be sent to procurement@cafsouthernafrica.org

YOU CAN HELP:

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

Southern Africa Philanthropy Foundation (SAPF) 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, SAPF 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.

SAPF will process all donations and ensure that due diligence, governance compliance and reporting are fully implemented. SAPF 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.
