About this grant

The Charities Aid Foundation-Southern Africa promotes workplace giving in South Africa. This grant increase will enable Charities Aid to strengthen its volunteer program by hiring a volunteer coordinator who will enhance the assistance provided to companies for their volunteer activities. This grant increase will also support a conference that will allow Charities Aid to share its experiences with business and nonprofits, and to examine ways of improving partnerships between the two sectors to ensure more effective mobilization of local resources for development.
