So what must I do? How do I show my compliance?

Stand out from the rest!

Show your compliance and transparency to donors by receiving a Star Rated Gold, Silver or Bronze Certificate.  Be proud that your organisation has the main compliance documents in place.  This will assist you when applying for funding.

What is compliance?

In the past, being a registered Non Profit Organisation was sufficient.  The new generation of donors require a lot more information from you than just your NPO registration certificate.  Donors wish to see your standard fundraising compliance.

What does NGOAdvisor.co.za do for you?

When you provide us with proof of various documents, we will provide your organisation with a star rating, detailing your fundraising compliance to donors.  The maximum stars you can receive is 10 stars.

You will also receive a certificate of compliance which you can display in your office and you can also use this certificate as an attachment to your applications for maximum effect.


For an administration fee of R35 per month, your NPO has the potential to be viewed and researched by many donors, agencies, corporate and individuals seeking worthy causes to fund.  You also receive your status as being compliant, giving you bragging rights.


Your Organisation’s documents are confidential and are not shared with the public.  Your star rating can be viewed on our website, but not your actual documentation.  If a donor wishes to see your documents, they will need to contact you directly.


Should you require any further assistance with your compliance documentation please contact us:  We can help your organisation reach a higher compliance rating.

See and be Seen!
