CAF America's Global Partnerships enable carefully chosen teams around the world to bring together the very best of talent and strengths.

In today's world philanthropy often moves at the speed of the Internet even if the human condition has not yet learned to heal or grow or change or rebuild or a host of other things that philanthropy can and will address, at that same lighting speed. CAF America's Global Partnerships enable us to bridge those great divides by bringing to the American donor the very best of philanthropic expertise and services on the ground in countries around the world. Through this podcast series, we introduce our listeners, our donors to partners we collaborate with and partners who collaborate with us, in making it possible for that long arch of history, that long arch of philanthropic change to bend a little faster, with much more assurance, and with the full regulatory compliance, risk management and regulatory compliance you have come to rely on from CAF America.

In this edition CAF America President & CEO, Ted Hart will introduce you to Gill Bates, CEO of CAF Southern Africa our partner in South Africa who works to encourage and facilitate the investment of money, in-kind resources and time, by companies, institutions and individuals throughout South Africa. Their work with donors, foundations and corporations helps strengthen South Africa's nonprofit sector and the communities they serve. CAF Southern Africa is committed to promoting and adding value to these contributions by encouraging cooperation, sharing innovation, and fostering leadership.

They provide expert advice on social investment policy & strategy, grant management and administration services, research and advocacy and the encouragement of a culture of philanthropy. They also help facilitate nation-wide special focus programs such as Mandela Day volunteering opportunities.
