What Will My Donation Be Used For?

Our work depends entirely upon donations - but what do we do with the money you give?

How will your donation be used?

The Cape Independence Advocacy Group (CIAG) exists to promote the concept of an independent Western Cape and to work towards securing and winning a provincial referendum.

The CIAG is run as a not-for-profit organisation by the Cape Development Institute NPC (2002/686484/08), a registered not-for-profit company. Donations are our primary source of income.

We are deeply grateful for any donations we receive, large or small, once-off or monthly. If you have donated, then a very sincere thank you.

At times we will run donation campaigns to fund a specific activity, and it will be very clear what you are funding. The Cloetesville march for Cape Independence was an example of this, where the donations were used to hire equipment, provide water and food for the marchers, to provide transport to the start of the march, to advertise the march, and to produce marketing materials such as the flags handed out on the day.

At other times we will just ask for generic funding. These funds are used for both the day to day activities of the CIAG, which include running our website, growing our social media audiences through targeted advertising, as well as accruing funds for much larger projects such as independent political polling which is extremely expensive.

Sometimes large donors will wish to earmark a donation for a specific purpose (such as polling) and we are always happy to discuss donations for a specific purpose.

All our income and expenses are recorded, collated into management accounts, independently audited where required by law, and submitted to SARS.

Our intention is to establish the CIAG as a permanently staffed advocacy group working full time towards independence. At this time, however, all of the work carried out by the CIAG team to date has been conducted on a voluntary and unpaid basis. For those incredible people who have sacrificed so much to get us this far, we reserve a very special thank you.

Together, we are building a better future for ALL Western Cape citizens (& the generations to come), regardless of their race, religion or culture.

Thank you all.
