South African Institute for Advancement (Inyathelo)

Woodstock, Cape Town, South Africa



The institute supports nonprofit resource mobilization and sustainability in South Africa and neighboring countries. Since 2005, Inyathelo has managed our $10.5 million Special Initiative in South Africa, which sought to build the private advancement capacity at five large teaching institutions. Funding is being used to conduct a formal evaluation of the initiative’s effectiveness and its lasting impact on Inyathelo, the initiative’s grantees, and other South African institutions.
