All NPO and charitable organisations operating in the Paarl valley and surrounding areas are invited to register to become members of Valcare for 2018.

Valcare is one of the largest operating Impact Funding Platforms in the valley, activating and enabling social change in community. Not only do they focus on strategic interventions to ensure sustainable change, but they also have a thriving membership network consisting of almost 200 projects.

When you become a Valcare member, you will be united with a network of like-minded people who all gain from a list of benefits to strengthen and uplift your project.

These benefits include:

  • Capacity building: training, internship programmes, volunteer campaigns, donations in kind, useful resources and a membership database.
  • Coordinated efforts: Child protection programme, social workers support network, ECD initiative, feeding scheme, skills programme and prison outreaches.
  • Encouragement and engagement: events, prayer opportunities, workgroups and think tanks.
  • Support: facilities sharing, NPO compliance support, Preferred Service Providers.
  • United voice: press statements, advocacy and united engagement.

Valcare also provides funding to projects that address community needs according to the Valcare funding criteria, strategy and intervention areas. All Valcare members can apply to become a funding partner, but please note that being a member does not guarantee this. There are two funding cycles per year, with the next funding proposal deadline being 9 February 2018. The application guidelines and criteria can be found on the Valcare website.
