    Merged non-governmental organisations (NGOs) say they need to pool resources if they are to make a significant difference.

  • Voluntary But Liable
    Increasing expectations of good governance could make you vulnerable to financial loss if you join a NPO and something goes wrong. However, through careful management, the risk can be minimised
    Nonprofit organisations (NPOs) feature large in the lives of many South Africans. There are the multitudes on the receiving end, such as those benefiting from our charities. But there are probably just as many givers: donors, which range from large corporations to anyone dropping a few coins in a collection tin, and the many who give of their time and expertise to run these organisations - and who form the backbone of the NPO sector.
