" Nature knows no pause in progress and development, and attaches her curse on all inaction. "

~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Invitation to NGO\CBO Open Day

The University of Fort Hare, in partnership with Rhodes University and PricewaterhouseCoopers, cordially invites you to an NGO/CBO Open Day, which will take place on Friday 23rd September, 2011 from 9.00am to 3.30pm in East London. Details of the venue will be provided once registration has closed. Note that we aim for this to be an annual event.

The theme of this inaugural Open Day is ‘Financial Record Keeping and Fundraising’ and the
objectives are to provide:

1. Practical tools and case studies that will assist NGOs and CBOs in keeping their financial
records (paper-based or using computers);
2. Ideas and examples of what other records need to be kept; and
3. Providing guidelines and examples to assist with fundraising.

The Open Day will be free of charge and catering will be provided. In terms of transport arrangements, participants from East London and local surrounds will need to provide their own transport. For participants from Grahamstown and local surrounds, Rhodes University will be arranging transport to East London.
