About this grant

The South African Institute for Advancement, also known as Inyathelo, was established in 2002 to promote philanthropy, leadership development, and resource development for the nonprofit sector in South Africa. Recent activities include facilitating workshops and training programs on fundraising for nonprofits, convening and mentoring donors, developing and distributing materials for donors and nonprofits, and introducing youth philanthropy activities. Inyathelo will host a donor conference to promote discussions between grantmakers operating in South Africa on challenges and experiences with grantmaking. The conference is aimed at building effective and impactful philanthropy.
