Since 1993 OSF-SA has provided funding support in the amount of R1 billion to over 700 civil society and other partners. As we celebrate 25 years of grant making, we pay tribute to the organisations that we have supported during the past 25 years in South Africa. Your work remains the reason for our continued investment in South Africa. You continue to inspire us in our work by the passion and commitment that you show in making our country work better for those most in need.
Many of our grantees will be joining us in Cape Town for our commemorative activities. Some of South Africa’s leading and pioneering civil society leaders will also be with us to share their views on the trajectory of South Africa’s democracy for the next 25 years, through two high level conversations with grantees, OSF-SA staff and expert analysts.
- On 29 November 2018 our grantees will be hosting tours and conversations around their work (not open to the public).
- On the evening of 29 November 2018 we will be hosting a public screening of Whispering Truth to Power and a moderated panel discussion.
- On 30 November 2018 OSF-SA will be hosting two roundtables with some of South Africa’s leading and pioneering civil society leaders (not open to the public).
- On 30 November 2018 all OSF-SA’s grantees, partners and the public are invited to attend the Commemorative Open Society Lecture at the Cape Town City Hall.
