About this grant

In response to the numerous developmental and social challenges facing South Africa, a number of community-based organizations have been established. The Community Development Resource Association has a long history of providing organizational support and training to South African nonprofits to strengthen their effectiveness in implementing programs and activities. Multiyear funding will enable the association to share practices and interventions that will benefit poor and marginalized community-based organizations; provide support to individuals, organizations and networks to increase their effectiveness; offer specific courses on professional development; and create action learning groups for organizational development practitioners to deepen their understanding and improve their practice.The Community Development Resource Association, established in 1987, is one of the oldest organizations in South Africa working on strengthening nonprofits.
