​​​​How to develop a sustainable funding model

The Finding Funding Programme has been designed to provide you with the knowledge and tools you need to build the right types of finance to your organisation, to make it work.

​The environment for social enterprises is changing fast – grant funding? Impact investing? BBBEE? Venture philanthropy? This programme brings together experts in each of these fields, to tell you where the environment is going, how you tap into it, and the most important of all – whether you should.

 You will meet funders from different financing organisations, work with the GIBS team to develop your funding models, pitch for funding and leave with a unique strategy for the next five years. ​​​

Who should attend?

This programme is essential for​​ social entrepreneurs, nonprofit and business leaders looking to negotiate and navigate the complexity of the fast-changing funding environment in South Africa. Fu​ndraising, business development and BBBEE managers will also find this programme vital with its specialist focus. 

This is a practical programme where you will be able to apply your learning back into your organisation. 

GIBS also recommends this programme for CSI practitioners to build their toolkit to support organisations to sustainability, or they can sponsor leaders from beneficiary organisations to attend. 

How you will benefit

At the end of this programme, you will be able to:

-Identify and understand the new funding landscape for non- profits and social enterprises;

-Use the new BBBEE and Enterprise Development codes effectively;

-Understand impact investing and how your organisation can leverage this concept;
