US Ahead of UK in Online Fundraising

Fundraisers in the United Kingdom have fallen behind their counterparts in the United States by at least 18 months in using the online environment in enhancing their fundraising efforts.

This claim was made during a recent presentation by Alan Clayton, Director of Innovation at The Good Agency, on the interim report of an ongoing research project combining research into donor values and motivations, and online behaviour.

South African NGOs and the Financial Crisis - What is your experience?

Over the past few months local and international news has been dominated by information and analysis on the scope and implications of the global financial crisis. As with all sectors of society, the local NGO sector has not escaped the fall-out of the crisis. Their sources of funding are under increasing pressure as individual donors have less deposable income, corporate bottom lines have shrunk and international grant flows have slowed.

AfriForum Criticises ANC Over Rector Appointment

AfriForum has accused the African National Congress (ANC) in the Free State of forcing the University of the Free State (UFS) into appointing a party loyalist as new Rector.

AfriForum CEO, Kallie Kriel, has also criticised the disapproval voiced by the ANC spokesperson in that province, Teboho Sikisi, about the shortlist of five candidates and his demand that the so-called "progressive black academic" should be appointed.

South African NGOs in the Rest of Africa

South African NGOs are increasingly engaged in activities and projects in the rest of Africa. These interventions are the result of South African NGOs' specific know-how and expertise (e.g. conflict resolution, poverty alleviation, etc.), funding arrangements with multi-country partners and objectives and most important, many African countries confronted with and/or NGOs involved in issues of common concern.

Support Emergency Relief Efforts for Zimbabwe

The humanitarian situation in Zimbabwe is deteriorating on a daily basis. The cholera outbreak of the past week, as well as chronic food, water and electricity shortages, highlights the challenges facing the people of Zimbabwe. In addition, the collapse of the Zimbabwean currency, spiralling inflation and the gradual disintegration of the security forces are all indications of a situation that is getting more desperate by the day.

Extensive emergency relief efforts will be required over the next few weeks to help stabilise the situation in Zimbabwe.

NGOs and the Global Financial Crisis

The global financial crisis impacts on all NGOs - big and small, urban and rural, local and international.

For some NGOs the impact is immediate, for others the real impact will only be known in months to come.

The crisis is once again highlighting the need for NGOs to review their funding and sustainability models.

The following articles capture the views and opinions expressed by various local and international commentators in recent weeks about the impact of the crisis on NGOs in South Africa and other parts of the world:
