This Mandela Day there was an unprecedented outpouring of generosity and action among employees from businesses large and small: children received books, classrooms were painted, blankets and gifts were delivered, nutritious food was distributed and donations were raised and shared in less privileged communities. These volunteer actions, largely charitable in nature, must be recognised and valued: real and immediate needs of NGOs and communities were addressed as corporate employees bore witness to the every-day struggles of fellow citizens.
Minister Rob Davies has published draft amendments to the existing B-BBEE Codes. Both progressive business and the non-profit sector are seriously questioning several aspects of these -- to the extent that the DTI was last week moved to issue a press statement denying that the intention of the draft Codes is to disadvantage 'charitable organisations'. Paradoxically it is the changes to the Socio-Economic Development (SED) pillar -- which currently carries the least points on the scorecard - which is drawing the most public criticism. In spite of the DTI's recent demurral, the intended changes have the potential to both impoverish non-profits and damage South Africa's burgeoning corporate social responsibility culture. At both practical and symbolic levels this is cause for grave concern.

Community foundations have enjoyed considerable growth in recent years, not only in their number but also in their character. This emergence of a "new generation" of community foundations is occurring within a larger context of other emerging forms of "social solidarity" movements and institutions, including rural development philanthropy, member-based organizing and other hybrid forms of citizen-led actions. In an effort to strengthen a conceptual framework for this phenomenon, this paper identifies synergies and linkages across networks (and their respective bodies of literature) that may previously not have been well connected.
