The 'CSI Toolkit,' a practical ‘how-to’ guide on investing CSI funds effectively. Produced by the CSI Solutions, the toolkit is the first publication of its kind in South Africa and provides invaluable information on the process, from developing a strategy to identifying, planning, managing and exiting community development projects.
The publication involved a collaborative research process that included interviews with 100 major players in the CSI field. Based on this, it provides information around impact, sustainability, partnerships, social facilitation, capacity building and communicating your CSI activities. It encourages practitioners to actively engage in the process, learn from experiences and make the most informed decisions to develop sustainable projects.
The Toolkit is aimed at grant-makers, not only corporates with big CSI budgets, but also SMEs that are exploring CSI opportunities. NGOs too can gain value from the information by understanding grant-makers’ expectations. It reflects the effect on beneficiaries at grass roots level, and promotes the practical alignment of business reality with social investment opportunities.
