PurpleOrange have recently launched our new PurpleOrange Training Courses conducted on various topics to help you to improve the efficiency and impact of your organisation. Some of our recent courses and workshops include:

Introduction to BBBEE

Broad based black Economic Empowerment can be confusing and a minefield to navigate.

This training course will simplify it for you, making it easier for you to understand the various aspects of BBBEE and also learn how you can benefit from BBBEE. This course will assist you and your business to understand BBBEE and be able to implement BBBEE strategies and give you the knowledge to prepare for your company’s verifications.

Fundraising & BBBEE

A basic understanding of BBBEE is required for effective fundraising in South Africa.

With this understanding, you can provide the proper governance and reporting required by corporate donors which is crucial for attracting corporate support and proving contributions are invested towards business sustainability and social stability.

Fundraising 101

All you need to know to fundraise professionally in South Africa.

This comprehensive workshop covers everything that a professional fundraiser needs to know about fundraising in South Africa. From BBBEE to Corporate funding, Events, HNWI and International donors, this workshop is an intensive, one-day training course that will change the way you do your funding.

Gina FlashExecutive Director - Mensch

“On behalf of the Tomorrow Trust, thank you for providing us with the BBBEE training. It really was an informative session and we are happy that we took part in it. It was an enlightening workshop and I now have a clearer understanding of BBBEE funding and am very excited to move forward with this approach.”

Taryn CoutinhoPartner Relations HOD - Tomorrow Trust

The PurpleOrange team were tireless in their pursuit of funding for the South African Para-dressage team and have ultimately been responsible for identifying and negotiating our contract with our sponsors, Gold Circle. Their enthusiastic team led by Joanne Rowland were a pleasure to work with and brought in the full budget requested by us. Their efforts have allowed us an opportunity to go to Europe to qualify for the Rio Paralympics 2016 (this would have been impossible without this level
of financial support.)
I have no hesitation in recommending them for future projects and have no doubt that the level of passion, drive and determination which we witnessed, will be an asset to all of their future clients.

Jo both understands and can develop strategic plans. She prefers to dedicate herself to active fundraising rather than devising organisational processes, but can help those around her to understand the infrastructural support needed for better donor-related stewardship. Jo is externally focused in her outlook and will keep abreast of funding and fundraising developments to maintain the edge. She is an asset to any forward-thinking organisation.
