Almost nine in 10 South Africans did something charitable last year, says latest research
Key findings of the research include:
80% of those surveyed have given money in the past 12 months; either to a non-profit or charity, to a church or religious organisation, or by sponsoring someone
The report also shines a light on the youngest generation of South Africans and how they interact with civil society, with 18-24 year olds significantly more likely than average to say that they donate to make a diﬀerence (64% vs. 56% overall)
NOTICE TO OUR SUBSCRIBERS:
After 16 years of being our anchor sponsor FNB has decided to discontinue their sponsorship effective January 31 2019. First I’d like to thank FNB for their resolute support over this time. Second, if there are subscribers who would like to submit proposals as to how we can keep www.sagoodnews.co.za going that would be most welcome. I have a number of proposals out in the marketplace, but times are tough.
My dream would be to have a dozen or so aspirant freelance journalists located around the country who could write their stories contributing to our mission of “a balanced and informed narrative providing hope for our future”. I would like to be able to mentor and coach their writing skills and pay them decently if their articles are published. Clearly, I need resources to do this
We have 12,000 newsletter subscribers; 55000 page views; +/- 40,000 Facebook followers; 25,000 unique users and we are read by the ex-pat community (largely) in 180 countries. Every week we publish ‘latest news’; a blog; newsletter; SA hero story; corporate and NGO good deeds. Hardly a week goes by where we don’t have 15 to 20 new subscribers.
Please mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a serious proposal.
