Without seeing the detail of what is measured in the 8 elements is difficult to make an assessment of how useful this certficate might be to potential donors. For instance with respect to sustainability most NPO's in this country are dependant upon their donors continuing to make donations year in and year out. If the donors stop they go insolvent. Very few are sustained by social enterprise (owning a business where the profits are used for charitable purposes) or their own Foundation (income from dividends and interest on their investments sustaining charitable purposes)
To what extent is this known and supported by the large CSI donors and the more sophisticated NPO's? With operating expenses of about R 35 million, and excluding the donors funds they administer, Tshikululu is possibly the largest NPO in this country. They are constantly evaluating NPO's - do they use or support this NPO Sustainability Certificate?
