The Tipfuxeni Portal, a capacity building project and a funding and fundraising resource portal for non-governmental organisations (NGOs) in South Africa, is a project of SANGONeT which was launched by the deputy minister in the presidency, Mr Buti Manamela. Since the launch, Tipfuxeni has seen a number of NGOs and individuals visiting the site and interacting with us through twitter and Facebook.


In the past three months since the launch, we have published opportunities from different sources that in our view were important and beneficial to South African NGOs and the sector in general. We have also published articles written by different contributors who understand the NGO sector and its challenges in relation to funding and fundraising.


We commit ourselves in continuing to make Tipfuxeni a better and informative resource for the NGO sector in the New Year. Your participation in this journey will be highly appreciated. You can participate as user or by contributing articles to the site.


We have come to the end of 2014 and are now preparing for 2015. SANGONeT offices will be closed from Friday, 12 December 2014 and will re-open on Monday, 05 January 2015. Tipfuxeni portal will therefore not be updated until we re-open.


We would like to wish our users, contributors, visitors and all stakeholders a happy and peaceful festive season. We thank you for interacting with us this year and invite you to do the same in 2015.


People can continue engaging with Tipfuxeni by registering themselves as users and enjoying the informative and educational articles. You can also follow the Tipfuxeni Portal on twitter and become our friend on Facebook.


We urge you to continue engaging with SANGONeT through the following products:
