Emergency funding released for Gauteng NPOs involved in feeding programmes and food supply

South African registered Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) or Public Benefit Organisations (PBOs) rendering feeding programme services in Gauteng were given an opportunity to secure additional funding amid the current COVID-19 crisis.

In mid-April, Charities Aid Foundation Southern Africa (CAFSA) announced that Oppenheimer Generations Foundation has made emergency funding available. This funding is offered on a once-off basis and is specifically to support small organisations that are delivering essential food to vulnerable communities.

The qualifying criteria were as follows:

1. The full-time staff headcount of the organisation should not exceed 30 employees;

2. The annual turnover of the organisation should be R5 million, per annum, or less;

3. The organisation must be able to demonstrate that it is currently operational and continuing to render services to its clients (A PERMIT TO PERFORM ESSENTIAL SERVICES IN TERMS OF THE DISASTER MANAGEMENT ACT, 2002 will be required);

4.   The organisation must complete an online application form and email all supporting documentation (link and email address provided below);

5.    The organisation must sign a Grant Agreement with Charities Aid Foundation Southern Africa (CAFSA).

Given the limited funds available, applications from qualifying organisations were processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Applications for funding closed on Wednesday 15 April 2020. We will be providing feedback on the recipients of the funding in due course.

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.
