The Greater Durban Community Foundation: Civil Society and Corporate Involvement

Benedict Cele, Emerging Leader, International Fellow ~ 2001




Benedict Cele examines the role of the private, public, and civic sectors in the economic development of the Durban Metropolitan Area in South Africa. He argues that community foundations are uniquely suited to the Durban region, and have the potential to bring these sectors together. Building on case studies and discussions of the corporate-nonprofit relationship, Cele concludes with recommendations for the newly established Greater Durban Community. These recommendations address the issues of governance, community involvement support, adequate levels of staffing, and the design of a grantmaking priorities and program.
