2013 Inyathelo Philanthropy Awards
Start Date: Nov 05, 2013
End Date: Nov 05, 2013
Venue: City Hall, Cape Town
Description: Inyathelo: The South African Institute for Advancement works to build a vibrant democracy in South Africa by strengthening civil society organisations and higher education institutions, and developing a strong philanthropic movement, rooted in the African cultural heritage of sharing.

Inyathelo: The South African Institute for Advancement is hosting a gala event for the Philanthropy Awards on 5 November 2013 in Cape Town.

Nominations for the 2013 Inyathelo Philanthropy Awards have closed. All nominations submitted will be reviewed by an Independent Review Panel as part of the shortlisting process and the the 2013 awardees will be announced at the gala event.

This prestigious annual event was established by Inyathelo: The South African Institute for Advancement to acknowledge, celebrate and honour those whose personal giving has contributed towards sustainable social change in our country.

Previous awardees include the Ackerman and Lubner families; Traditionalist, environmentalist and community worker Grace Masuku; 12-year Jordan van der Walt whose ‘Just One Bag’ campaign has fed over a million hungry school children; Refiloe Seseane, a former soap opera star who started the organisation 18twenty8 to empower young women; Alice Wamundiya, a former car guard from Rwanda who established an organisation to provide tertiary education for refugees; and Dr Peter Farrant for his lifetime contribution to secondary education and the prevention and treatment of HIV.

The Awards panel is looking for extraordinary people who are actively investing their own resources in small or big ways to improve their communities and South Africa - be it through the arts, education, health, environment, research or other causes. We believe Philanthropy is dependent on the interest, passion, commitment, generosity and foresight of individuals wanting to make a difference, and the Inyathelo Philanthropy Awards seek to inspire others by recognising the incredible role models amongst us. Individual giving can be the largest source of donor money in South Africa and philanthropists play a critical role in effecting real systemic change through supporting innovative solutions to our many social, environmental and economic problems.
