About this grant
Southern Africa Trust was established in 2005 to support lasting solutions to poverty across the southern African region. It produces knowledge on poverty issues, makes grants to organizations that work to reduce poverty, and promotes dialogue on poverty-related matters. The Change4ever Campaign, a project of Southern Africa Trust, is a public fundraising campaign that aims to make giving for lasting social change desirable. The campaign highlights social issues and raises funds to respond to them. Previous support enabled the Southern Africa Trust to promote giving by profiling ordinary citizens and hosting giving circle events to raise funds for good causes. This grant will support the grantee to build on the success of the Change4ever Campaign by continuing to profile individuals that give back to their communities and host giving circle events to raise funds for more organizations. The grantee will also partner with other organizations to host giving events targeted at high-net-worth individuals.
