Champion a Project
Funding an entire project for a year means you will be recognised as the official project sponsor.
But it takes time.
Here is what to expect over the course of your sponsored year.
Before the year begins, each project gets supplies, hires facilitators and recruits beneficiaries.
IMPLEMENTATION & EVALUATION
The project is underway! Throughout the year you will receive a list of beneficiaries and two progress reports.
Celebrate the success of your sponsorship with beneficiary testimonials and your final report.
What am I paying for when I champion a project?100% of your money goes to the project costs on the ground. Private donors cover the salaries and operation costs in the SOLE office so your money can go directly to the following costs (breakdown can vary by project): * materials: booklets, beneficiary learning kits, stationery * project staff: coordinator and facilitators * project support: computers, internet, projector, space rental, marketing
What's included in my report?When your project year is complete, we assemble and send you a report with the following information: * photos of the actual project throughout the year * list and number of beneficiaries * beneficiary testimonials
How does SOLE determine the cost of championing a project?Each year, SOLE prepares a project budget based on the current operations as well as the upcoming year's strategic focus. These are examined closely by SOLE's finance team to ensure they are accurate and reasonable. Based on analysis of costs in previous and upcoming years, we've determined that R30 000 is most representative of a typical SOLE project. Not every project costs exactly R30 000. If the actual costs are less than your sponsorship, the extra money will go towards another SOLE project of your choice. If your sponsored project ends up at a higher cost, other SOLE donors will cover the remainder, but you will still be recognised as the project sponsor.
