About this grant

The Non Profit Consortium specializes in the enabling of legal and fiscal environments for nonprofits in South Africa. It is one of the few organizations in the country that has a dedicated focus on nonprofit law, providing advocacy, training, capacity building and research. It was actively involved in shaping the nonprofit act and tax-exemption provisions that the new, nonracial democratic government introduced after 1994.This grant will enable the organization to continue providing training and capacity building to nonprofits, particularly community-based organizations, that will help them understand and benefit from the legal and fiscal provisions available to them. The grant also will support research, dissemination of information and advocacy on behalf of the nonprofit sector to improve the enabling environment.
