The Open Society Foundation for South Africa (OSF-SA) works to build a dynamic and inclusive democracy through a unique combination of philanthropy and advocacy, mindful of South Africa’s history, and supports over 80 organisations working to promote an open society in SA.
The only constant for OSF-SA is change, and so adaptability and agility is key to the support we’ve provided since 2014 – from live tweeting a webinar, to building a COVID-19 dedicated website or writing a Facebook post on breaking news involving their grantees.
Today, many of the projects and organisations OSF-SA supports focus on protecting the constitutional rights of marginalised groups, including refugees, sex workers, and LGBTQIA+ communities, cognisant of the challenging ripples of the COVID-19 pandemic. Crafting a powerful online presence for OSF-SA and their fundamental grant-making is something we’re particularly passionate about.
