Fundraising and Public Relations
The Fundraising and Public Relations Division
The Fundraising and Public Relations Division promotes accessibility to all information and services relevant to the blindness sector. The purpose of this Division is to ensure that the organisation has sufficient financial resources to fulfil its mission.
This division produces a variety of newsletters and publications available electronically, in print form, as well as in braille mediums. The division maintains Council’s website and does whatever it can to promote access to information, news and products for visually impaired consumers, service providers in the blindness sector, schools, employers, and the broader public which comprises many supporters, funding partners and donors.

Leaving a Legacy
When Rose Petals died naturally at the age of 95 she left a gift in her will to the SANCB.
Rose, who was formerly a receptionist was blinded by glaucoma at 45 and knew just how much her gift would mean to the community.
If you would like to leave a parting gift to the SANCB, please contact 012 452 3811 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

SANCB’s Fundraising Gala Dinner
Honourable Adv Tshililo Michael Masutha (MP), Minister of Justice and Correctional Services initiated the co-hosting of a fundraising gala dinner in partnership with the South African National Council for the Blind in 2017, in recognition of the contribution of the blind and partially sighted towards South Africa’s social justice and development agenda.
The gala dinner which is set to be an annual event will raise funds to assist all the 22 special public schools for the blind and partially sighted in South Africa with adaptive and assistive learning devices, library resources and other amenities desperately needed by learners in these schools whose plight for a conducive learning environment is still largely unattended and/or insufficiently catered for in the mainstream public education system.
For more information on the Gala Dinner that took place or for the 2019 Gala Dinner, please contact Bhavanisha Chanderparsadh on: 012 452 3811 or Bhavanisha@sancb.org.za
