Nation Builder does not receive donations – we are a platform where we gather across sectors to learn from each other and co-create resources. These resources are freely available to download if you need information on how to improve or maximize the impact of your social investments.

However, there are many other opportunities for partnerships in terms of sponsorships, hosting of events, peer-learning, knowledge-sharing, and joint initiatives. Please contact the Nation Builder office to discuss possible partnerships and collaboration.

The best way to partner is to join the community. Contact us to be a part of the collaborative peer-learning gatherings that we host every second month. We have gathering for three different peer-learning communities, namely corporates, privately owned businesses and NPOs in Gauteng, KZN, and Western Cape. Alternately access all of the leading resources developed by Nation Builders on the NBhood community. Or lastly sign-up for our newsletter and 6 mailers and keep abreast of what’s happening at Nation Builder.

Unfortunately, Nation Builder is not a funding body and is therefore unable to assist with funding requests. We are a not-for-profit ourselves, and work to equip and facilitate knowledge-sharing and peer-learning between business and NPOs and our main aim is to educate and inspire business people to use their resources to better support the social development sector.

  • If you are a corporate: you will need to complete an online CSI assessment (Benchmarking Tool) to give you and us insights into how you approach social investment. Once you have received your results, contact the Nation Builder office for details about the next Collab dates and intake.
  • If you are a privately owned business: You will need to complete an online social investment health check to give you and us insights into your social investment approach. Once you have received your results, contact the Nation Builder office to participate in your nearest Business X-Change gatherings.
  • If you are an NPO: please email the Nation Builder team to find out about access to the online community.

No – your social impact is not dependent on the size of your budget or your social development spend. We would suggest you start with a chapter in the “Good Partner Guide For Individuals” called “Best Practice Tips for Good Giving”(link these). This will give you a good idea of how to be more strategic and ensure what you have to give has the greatest possible impact.

You can access these free resources here:  https://www.proudnationbuilder.co.za/good-partner-guides

Finally, bear in mind that social impact is not just dependent on money – businesses and NPOs have the knowledge, expertise, networks, services, products, people and other non-tangible resources that can also make a valuable contribution to communities, organizations, and nation building.
