The Resource Alliance are hosting the Global Fundraising Awards and two South African organisations are on the list and they need our votes!


South Africa (12 October 2020) – The Global Fundraising Awards by the Resource Alliance have selected eight organisations, one of which will win the Change Accelerator Award. Two South African organisations have made the list and we are incredibly proud!

Cupcakes of Hope, founder Sandy Cipriano, has been nominated for the award.

“Sandy Cipriano is Founder of Cupcakes of Hope, who aim to create awareness and raise funds for children with life-threatening diseases, predominantly done through a love of baking cupcakes. Every month Cupcakes of Hope helps 80 -100 little cancer patients by paying for their medical and day-to-day expenses.”

Masakhe Community Development Programme co-founder Ntombenqaba Precious Petros has also been nominated.

“Ntombenqaba Precious Petros is Co-founder of Masakhe Community Development Programme,  a community self-empowerment organisation in South Africa.”

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.

You can vote for our fellow South Africans here.
