Call for Pro-philanthropy Policies

Philanthropists is calling for policies that support philanthropy

Amanda Bloch, a philanthropist and supporter of the Red Cross Children's hospital in Cape Town, has criticised the tunnel vision of government departments and called on the South African Revenue Services to develop policies that support philanthropy.

Bloch, who was awarded the 2007 Inyathelo Award for Philanthropy in Health, says the biggest challenge in her work had been navigating the apparent ‘insurmountable bureaucracy and lack of collaboration on the part of government’.

In the same vein, she criticises “too many in the corporate world who are so far removed from the reality of people's daily lives that they are totally out of touch with what consumers really want and expect”, adding that part of which is good corporate citizenship.
