Non-profit organisations

NPOs, company foundations, and community trusts make invaluable contributions to sustainable socio-economic development through ongoing activities in their specific focus areas. Due to the unique nature of the work they do, they require bespoke stakeholder management solutions for non-profit organisations.

For example, effective stakeholder and beneficiary consultation is vital to ensure that these initiatives are undertaken in an equitable manner that is in line with the needs, and aware of the social context within which they take place. In addition, stakeholder management can help ensure greater buy-in and ownership from beneficiaries, government bodies and project partners – thus overcoming one of the main areas of challenge when it comes to project success. Merely adopting practices from other industries will not do in these environments, and for this reason it is important to partner with an organisation with the skillset and experience to co-create stakeholder management solutions for NPOs.

G3 Business Solutions has delivered successful stakeholder management interventions for the Sishen Iron Ore Community Development Trust and the Liberty Community Trust, and developed stakeholder management guidelines used by corporate foundations, such as the Sasol Foundation.
