Two inspiring South Africans won at The 2020 Global Fundraising Awards; flying the SA flag high while helping others in the process!

 

South Africa (02 November 2020) – The Global Fundraising Awards by the Resource Alliance selected organisations from around the world. Two South African organisations made the list and both have walked away with winning titles; we are incredibly proud!

Carla Geyser, Founder/Owner of Blue Sky Society Trust won the Global Fundraising Innovator of the Year award.

This award is not just about money. The Global Fundraising Innovator of the Year has transformed the way their organisation works in response to the crisis. They have seen the challenges and faced them down with a determination to rethink, regroup, reorganise in order to move away from transactional fundraising and into a healthy, holistic and sustainable income stream. They have set their organisation on a new financial course that will withstand the day-to-day ups and downs of economies, donor trust and interest, and the myriad other factors that can disrupt even the best fundraising plans.

Ntombenqaba Precious Petros, Co-founder of Masakhe Community Development Programme won The Change Accelerator Award.

Forward-thinking. Progressive. Bold. The Change Accelerator Award goes to an individual who is advanced in their thinking, daring in their approach – and tired of the status quo. Their ideas are bigger, their goals loftier and their timeline faster. Their giant strides overshadow the baby steps of hesitation and timidity. They inspire us to the fearless pursuit of accelerating change in a time when we must displace fearfulness with fearlessness and strive for big impact. The Change Accelerator dares to live life in the fast lane of change.
