Categories: HEADLINES, Enterprise, Social & Community
The Board and Management of Community Chest, and the Board and Management of Impumelelo Social Innovations Centre, are pleased to announce a merger between Community Chest and Impumelelo.
The Community Chest of the Western Cape’s vision of a country where all individuals and families reach their human potential is based on the fundamentality of access to Health, Education, Income-Generation and Community Development. These four key strategic focus areas facilitate social change to inspire a citizenship that is active, engaged and impactful.
Impumelelo Social Innovations Centre has been a leading multi-sector evaluation body in South Africa and through the merger we will continue to unearth social innovation, reward creative solutions to public problems through its annual Awards Programme, conduct Master Class Training and disseminate through Case Study Research.
We are honoured to inform you that the Impumelelo Awards Programme will now be known as the Community Chest Impumelelo Social Innovations Awards. As the leadership, we value this merger as a strategic opportunity and to grow impact.
All Impumelelo assets, including staff, have been incorporated into Community Chest. Together we have increased sustainability, strengthened market offering, increased advocacy capacity and expanded our network of integrated services to better serve South Africa.
Our collective guiding vision remains fully focused on serving the people of our country, who daily seek a better future for themselves, their families and their communities, as well as the many dedicated and selfless staff of the non-profit sector.
This merger allows us to improve efficiencies, reduce duplicated costs and align synergies in order to better serve our communities.
We also honour our donors, whose meaningful engagements allow us to continue exploring more sustainable and more impactful ways of serving this great country and its people.
