CAF Southern Africa (CAFSA)

Charities Aid Foundation Southern Africa is an independent non-profit organisation that promotes and facilitates effective giving, volunteering and social investment.  CAF Southern Africa has been represented in South Africa since 1997, and in 2000 became a registered Section 21 not-for-profit and public benefit organisation.While being a wholly South African organisation we are also a member of the international Global Alliance of the Charities Aid Foundation, headquartered in the United Kingdom (CAF UK).CAF Southern Africa is independent of CAF UK, though we have access to CAF's skilled professionals, intellectual capital and value model. CAF UK and the other organisations within CAF International are valued and significant contributors to the operations of CAF Southern Africa.

Since 2010 CAF Southern Africa has been based at Arts on Main in the vibrant Maboneng Precinct, Johannesburg CBD.  CAF Southern Africa has partnered with the Maboneng Precinct Management to facilitate community development and upliftment programmes for the communities of the surrounding areas including projects at the Mai Mai Creche (care-givers for the children of the Mai Mai Market traders - Johannesburg's oldest Traditional Market), the Curious Cave and the Little Roses Creche.Eugene Saldanha, Founder of CAF Southern Africa

Our founder was the late Eugene Saldanha.  Eugene played a key role in strengthening the South African civil society sector:  he believed in the critical role of the sector in building and maintaining constitutional democracy; he set up and led two important NGOs:  the Non-Profit Partnership and then CAF Southern Africa in 1997.  He was influential in advocating for parliamentary reforms in regard to the enabling environment for civil society organisations, and was a leader in lobbying government to fulfil its responsibility to the sector.  In particular Eugene fought for civil society sustainability through reform of ineffective government institutions such as the Lotteries and National Development Agency (NDA).

In honour of our late founder CAF Southern Africa, together with a number of Eugene Saldanha's friends, colleagues and family members established the Eugene Saldanha Memorial Fund  in 2007.  The purpose of the Fund is to recognise the leadership role played by Eugene in the sector by advancing the work and values which he prized.
