To provide an effective service and information sharing platform to all registered NGO’s and to the international and local Donor Sector.

Vision Statement

Inspired by the thousands of NGO’s doing great work in South Africa, NGO-Advisor aims to respond to the needs of the NGO sector, but also the DONOR sector. We aim, in this way, to empower the NGO’s by offering them a platform where their achievements can be viewed by Donors. We also provide a much needed services to the Donors, locally and internationally, to locate worthy South African NGO’s.

We specifically aim to connect the donor with individual NGO’s. Our goal is to provide opportunities for both parties to find and be found through this website. We regularly reflect on the changing situation of the NGO sector and the DONOR sector and strive to be constantly effective for both the NGO and the DONOR.

Solution for both the Donor and the NGO

See and Be Seen

NGO Advisor is a website that will provide listing information to both donors and NGO’s.

The donor enters the website, searches the name or number of the NGO. This search will show the NGO’s star rating.

This pre-check on the website by a donor will ensure that the first step into checking the NGO’s validity and compliance has already been done by NGO Advisor. They can then proceed to contact the selected NGO directly, knowing that the selected NGO they wish to fund already has passed certain compliance checks.

Compliance Checklist

Are you an NGO?
Are you a donor?

Have you ever wondered what donors look for when they receive your proposal?

Through years of experience, and having raised millions of Rands for many organisations, NGOAdvisor’s team of experts can now assist you to be noticed by donors.

Off course the proposal that you write is the key in all your applications, but more and more donors are requesting that you show your compliance in the operation of your organisation.

What is compliance?

In the past, being a registered Non Profit Organisation was sufficient, but the new generation of donors require a lot more information from you than just your registration certificate.

What does NGOAdvisor.co.za do for you?

When you provide us with proof of documents (see list below), we will provide your organisation with a star rating, showing your compliance to donors.  The maximum stars you can receive: 10 stars.

This means you are compliant for most donors.

Why should I get star rated?

Once you are star rated, you will be listed on our website.  Donors, Corporate and Individuals are pre-checking NGO’s on this site to ensure your compliance, before they part with their money. Over 5000 International and Local Donor Agencies already know about this website.


For a minimal annual administration fee of R350 (less than 1 per day), your NGO has the potential to be viewed and researched by thousands of donors, agencies, corporate and individuals seeking worthy causes to fund.

How do I register on NGOAdvisor.co.za website?

Before you are listed on the site, you will receive an invoice of R350, and on receipt of payment we will list you on the NGOAdvisor.co.za website.

Send us your documents listed below or as many as you have.  We will then give you a star rating and place you on our website.

Also send a 50 word description of your organisation. This description will appear on the website.


Your Organisation’s documents are confidential and are not shared with anyone.  If a donor wishes to see your documents, they will need to contact you directly.
