Belonging to IPA-SA has been a vital factor in keeping our Foundation connected and informed about all things relating to the field of philanthropy.

The opportunity to network, to forge relationships and partnerships has been invaluable. We have learnt so much in the 5 years in which we have been a member, first of the PPC , and then of IPA-SA. For organization considering joining, I would encourage you to do so.

This is a group who are focused on maximising the impact that they have in their individual fields of philanthropy, and who are willing to share both successes and failures.
