About this grant

SGS Consulting provides consulting services to civil society organizations, multilateral agencies, and private foundations. Over the years, the grantee has provided technical assistance to organizations working in the philanthropy development and community advice office sectors in South Africa. Past support enabled the grantee to: 1) support organizations working in the two sectors to build knowledge of their respective fields; 2) increase the flow of resources; and 3) address capacity challenges within the sector. Additionally, the grantee provided technical support to network organizations in the respective sectors to strengthen the fields and increase learning. During this grant period, the grantee will build on the knowledge gained as a technical support facility to support the expansion and strengthening of community foundations in the southern Africa region. It will do this by identifying existing community foundation support organizations and supporting their efforts to grow the community foundation field.
