Ten Things to Prevent Constitutional Drift Within NPOs

  1. Defining the constitution 

South African nonprofit organisations (NPOs) can essentially be established through one of three structures, being; voluntary associations, nonprofit trusts and nonprofit companies. Each of these NPOs have different founding documents, namely: constitution for the voluntary association, trust deed for the nonprofit trust and memorandum of incorporation for the nonprofit company. The definition of ‘constitution’ in the Nonprofit Organisations Act includes a trust deed and memorandum of incorporation.   

Investing for the Future

A well-managed reserve fund is a vital component of any organisation’s sustainability strategy. Reserves provide a safety net to carry organisations through the lean times but they also, crucially, offer the breathing space to enable meaningful collaboration, planning and growth so that organisations deliver the best, most transformative solutions to South Africa’s challenges.

Alan Wellburn from Citadel Wealth Management explains.

Zambian NGOs Refuse to Register

Four hundred and sixty Zambian non-governmental organisations (NGOs) have resolved not to register under the NGO Act until all the necessary amendments on the proposed unconstitutional Act of 2009 are resolved.

Non Governmental Organisation Coordinating Council (NGOCC) chairperson, Beatrice Grillo, says the Act of 2009 is retrogressive and that it is not in the best interest of some civil society organisations (CSOs).

Grillo maintains that no genuine NGO is prepared to register under the Act in its current form.
