A  Non-profit organisation is one not driven by profit, but rather by cause or purpose. In general, the Non-profit sector forms an integral part of civil society and often faces challenges such as the reliance on public and government funding and the dedication of employees/volunteers who believe in their causes.

According to the Department of Social Development, South Africa currently has more than 260 000 registered non-profit organisations. Non-profit organisations are encouraged to formally register their organisation, which both boosts funding opportunities and may assist with tax incentives.

As the Cape Chamber, we look forward to addressing key issues that impact and hinder our local NPOs.

We welcome you to engage with us to strengthen the NPO sector.
