Do you need funding for your business – which is ‘not for profit’? You will need to Register a Non Profit Organisation (NPO) at the Department of Social Development (DSD). This will allow you to apply for funding directly at the DSD, as well as many other Government and Private Institutions using your NPO Number. We can Register your NPO for only R2650.
Requirement for NPO Registration: Non-Profit-Company (NPC)
To register an NPO (and get an NPO number), you need to back your entity with a formal document called an NPC. We will register your NPC and NPO in a ‘Combo Deal @ only R2650’.

Process of NPO Registration and getting an NPO Number
We are going to follow the procedures below to ensure your NPO Registration is successful at the DSD in the shortest possible time:
(1) Setup: Our experts register an NPC entity for you at CIPC and then setup your application documentation correctly.
(2) Submit: We then submit the NPO Registration documentation at the Department of Social Development (DSD).
(3) Certificate: The DSD completes the NPO Registration Certificate and a certificated copy of the organisation’s constitution will be posted to your nearest DSD which includes your NPO Number.
South Africa’s “Register of Nonprofit Organisations (NPO’s)” is a voluntary registration facility that enhances the credibility of the registered NPO – as it reports to a public office. The NPO Directorate, as a public office, holds information about registered NPO’s for the public to access, which increases the transparency and accountability of the organisation beyond its immediate role-plays.
An NPO stands for a Non-Profit Organisation. It is a Non Profit Company (NPC), Voluntary Association or Trust that is registered with the Government and established for a public purpose where the income and property are not distributed to its members or office bearers, except for reasonable compensation for services rendered, in terms of section 1 of the NPO Act 71 of 1997. Instead the income and property is used for “objects / purposes / missions” which are community based or non-governmental objectives.
