Valcare coordinates a thriving membership network consisting of hundreds of nonprofit organisations in the Paarl valley and surrounding areas.
Although we have a partnership funding strategy to support projects and initiatives through an application process, many of our members have ongoing physical needs – big and small. We are always on the look-out for individuals, corporates and foundations to take hands and help where they can.
This is an updated list of the requests we receive from our member organisations.
