About

The GivenGroup Foundation is the brainchild of CSRNEWS Africa, South Africa’s premier CSI news and information platform. The Foundation was established to tackle the many practical project management tasks and issues associated with corporate social investment, and is a natural outflow from our years of CSI practice in its many diverse forms.

Over the years, we have built up a team of development specialists, qualified journalists, editors and project managers who are modern and forward thinking – steeped in the language and knowledge of CSI and able to deliver impactful projects that meet both the developmental needs of SADC countries and the demands of corporate boardrooms.

IN A NUTSHELL:
The GivenGroup Foundation is the CSI managers’ convenience, designed to take away the pains of external supplier CSI management; we ensure community impact, deliver on programme mandates and fulfil boardroom expectations. At the end of each project, we submit a comprehensive, clear and well-written report that is easy to digest and invaluable for your board submissions.

How We Work

Your project will be assigned an overall project coordinator and hands-on project manager, who will handle every aspect of the project from inception to implementation to final report. We make you, the client, part of the project management cycle, keeping you informed and updated through weekly or monthly status meetings. This ensures peace of mind and provides the opportunity to make minor adjustments or simply stay abreast of progress.

Our service takes away the stress of having to manage multiple projects at once; we’ll develop and manage the project budget with you, implement the programme, and take care of administrative issues, providing a seamless service from start to finish. Our project management and reporting team combines years of experience in development work with a unique understanding of today’s boardroom realities. We know the pressures under which CSI managers work. We are truly your right-hand person when it comes to conceiving, budgeting, implementing and effectively reporting on projects.
