Awesome SA - South Africans Positively Influencing

Awesome SA motivates South Africans to positively influence the future. The movement was founded in 2007 by Derryn Campbell and Di Smith.

Through Awesome SA we support organisations that are making a social difference to the future of South Africa by assisting them to become self-sustainable and to continue to grow.

These organisations include:

  • Together SA
  • Feeding Hungry Students
  • Future Farmers Foundation
  • Siphakeme
  • Eden Kids Trust
  • Gcinamasiko Arts & Heritage Trust
  • Siyaziphathela Development
  • LOTS Project
  • Bakusasa Trust
  • Raise Your Voice
  • Infinity Education Trust

Awesome SA, a registered NPO (059-801 NPO) with PBO and SED status, is an umbrella body which assists initiatives working for social change in South Africa. Awesome SA fulfils a mentorship role to social initiatives by facilitating funding, complete financial administration, financial reporting and auditing to ensure accountability. Our registered Awesome SA Trust, together with our strategic partnership with the Ewing Trust Company, provides the platform to offer support and assistance to the initiatives that fall under the banner of Awesome SA.

Through our newsletters, website and presentations, we highlight stories that focus on the great acts and achievements of our people and the extra-ordinariness of South Africa. Awesome SA encourages South Africans to influence the future of our country by becoming active citizens.

We know that South Africans can walk together in the spirit of Ubuntu. When each of us becomes a Change Maker, we determine our own future and impact on the future of our country for good.

Please note Awesome SA takes 10% of the donation to cover the costs involved for the administrative services we offer to our initiatives.
