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:

  • Growing "tree spinach" (our guava trees are all gone, we now have over 1000 spinach trees)
  • Rental incomes from homes on its campus
  • Selling our print-media publications (old and new)
  • Selling our videos for training leaders and managers
  • Selling thematic calendars (African heroes of faith)
  • Selling our podcasts
  • Motivational speaking engagements
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.
