The National Lotteries Commission (NLC) is calling on nonprofit organisations, non-government organisations, public benefit trusts, schools and communities to apply for funding.
NLC commissioner, Charlotte Mampane, points out that, “This call is the second of three annual calls that will be made to the public to apply for funding in the current financial year.”
While the NLC will in future implement proactive funding to qualifying beneficiaries, Mampane says the NLC will continue to disburse funds primarily through open calls to the public, such as this one.
Applications officially commenced on 12 July 2015 for registered medium-sized organisations wishing to secure funding in excess of R500 000, while applications for smaller organisations will open on 1 October 2015. Closing dates for the current call for funding are 3 September and 12 November 2015 respectively.
