Through community development projects Community Chest Durban supports 105 Non-Profit Organisations. The focus area of these organisations includes Early Childhood Development, children, youth and family care, and residential care for the elderly and homeless, mentally handicapped, and disabled people. Crime and substance prevention and rehabilitation fall within Community Chest's fields of support. Emergency causes are also catered for.
Community Chest provides a monthly financial commitment to these NPO Impact Partners at the beginning of each financial year. Detailed monthly reports, coupled with visits and follow-up calls allow constant monitoring to ensure the funds donated are spent for the maximum benefit of the beneficiaries in care.
Community Chest Durban receives financial support from individuals, employees within organisations through 'Workplace Giving', bequests, and the corporate sector.
Charitable Trusts make a substantial contribution. Funds are also raised as a result of appeals and special events and donations in kind are always appreciated. Channelling your giving through the Community Chest gives you peace of mind that your donation will be used where it’s needed most.
Our stringent and regular monitoring ensures that contributions are used for the purpose intended and to create a significant impact. Our years of knowledge, experience, and mentoring enable us to guide and empower our 105 impact partners in order for them to grow and be sustainable.
