About this grant

The Centre for Civil Society, based at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, was established to promote the study and analysis of the nonprofit sector in South Africa and the wider African continent. It produces research; offers scholarships to those who want to study civil society; runs workshops and seminars; convenes conferences; and disseminates knowledge and publications on the pressing issues facing the civil society sector. This grant will continue to support the work and programs of the center, particularly as related to understanding the challenges that the sector is presently facing and what needs to be done to build a strong and accountable nonprofit sector that is adequately resourced through private and public funding.
