Income Generation


How does C4L support itself as a nonprofit?

C4L tries to maintain its own baseline income, in such a way that private donations and grants add value.  This is because donations and grant funding tend to be occasional, not regular.

Multiple income streams

In South Africa, nonprofits are constantly being challenged to look for "social enterprises" to generate some of their own income.  Here are some ways that we try to do this:

  • Rental incomes from homes on its campus
  • Selling our print-media publications (training tools and books)
  • Selling thematic calendars (African heroes of faith)
  • Motivational speaking engagements
  • Growing "tree spinach" (our guava trees are all gone, we now have over 1000 spinach trees)
The proportions vary from year to year. This website starts at this level of self-support and then goes deeper and deeper into C4L's layers of resourcing.

The 80/20 Rule

Nonprofits learn that they put in 80 percent of the effort to raise 20 percent of the funding.

Relatively speaking, the big grants of funding take less effort, but this 80 percent of the income is not regular or reliable.

So C4L place high value on small donations and the trickle of income from our campus.  These are relatively small, but they keep us sustainable.
