How we help

  Advancement Training and Support

Our Approach

10elementsInyathelo bases its interventions and offerings on the concept of Advancement. This is a systematic and integrated approach to building and managing external relationships with key constituencies and stakeholders, in order to attract support. There are ten integrated elements of Advancement:

  1. Leadership;
  2. Governance;
  3. Strategy;
  4. Planning;
  5. Financial management;
  6. Fundraising;
  7. Human capacity;
  8. Building relationships;
  9. Monitoring and evaluation; and
  10. Voice and visibility. 


Inyathelo offers a range of Advancement skills training,  such as workshops, seminars, one-on-one sessions, bespoke sessions, peer-learning sessions and conferences. These help clients to mobilise resources and keep funds flowing to their organisations.

Free Non-profit Clinic Sessions

Advice, resources, mentorship and support are available from Inyathelo via free clinic services. These are offered face-to-face if the non-profit organisation is based in Cape Town, or online. Read more.

ASK Inyathelo website

In addition, the ASKInyathelo website offers handy access to articles, materials, guides and tips on Advancement and fundraising. It is a go-to resource portal for many non-profit and other organisations. The topics include webinars and funding opportunities, research, and articles on subjects such as working from home and mental wellness. Read more.

Funding Finder Donor Database

Inyathelo offers a Funding Finder service which enables grant seekers to easily access details of nearly 1000  potential donors. Visitors to Inyathelo’s offices can access Funding Finder free of charge, but most find it more convenient to subscribe and access the service online at any time. The current subscription fees, subject to change, are R1725/year for non-profit organisations and R2875/year for Individuals or Institutions. Read more.
