You can make a difference in the life stories of thousands across Cape Town

A donation to Common Good is so much more than a gift towards a charitable cause. Your money fuels initiatives that enable the marginalised and poor in our communities to change the trajectory of their lives through better early life care, excellent education, job readiness training and connections to employment opportunities.

In the past year, donations funded...

800 job readiness graduates

from our employment initiative

better education for 1600 children

at Oranjekloof Primary in Hout Bay

literacy & numeracy support

for foundation phase learners at three schools

early life research

in the role that the local church can play in the first thousand days of life

resources and tools

for journeying towards a lifestyle of social justice

Where does my money go?

Your donation, however big or small, will have a direct impact in lives across our city. Here are some of the ways your money could be used to make a difference:


One Job Readiness training manual


Five new books for a school library


One-on-one literacy support, twice a week for a year, for twelve foundation phase learners


Ten resource packs for Early Life practitioners


Three weeks of job readiness training and connections to job opportunities for an unemployed person


Job Readiness training and ongoing support for a class of 20 participants



When you sign up for a donor programme you make a 12 month commitment to donate the specified amount monthly, with the option to renew after a year has passed.
