Making It Their Business: An Exploratory Study of Interest Levels Amongst Businesses to Support an LGBTI Foundation in South Africa. (2010)
By Melanie Judge and Gabrielle Ritchie. The objectives of this Atlantic Philanthropies study were to assess the extent to which LGBTI-owned businesses and local or multinational companies are likely to provide sources of funding for an LGBTI Community Foundation. It explores the levels of knowledge, attitudes and practices of LGBTI-owned businesses and local or multinational companies with regard to social investment in general; corporate social investment (CSI) and the key factors that influence social investment decisions; and engagement with, and understanding of, LGBTI issues. The study then makes recommendations to Atlantic as to how the Foundation might raise money from within the business sector.
