Guests parting generously with their wealth are universal in their giving…

The allure of the Cape Wine Auction, set to take place next on 10 and 11 February, might seem to be mingling with international and local wealthy and successful people casting their eye on rare, exclusive wines, unique experiences and travel up for auction whilst enjoying the finest food, wine and entertainment.

But the guests parting generously with their wealth are universal in their giving – to make a profound impact on education and the lives of children in the Cape Winelands.

The Cape Wine Auction has raised a staggering R31 million in three years and created a unique funding model, a first for South Africa, to ensure that the money is invested for maximum impact. Cape Wine Auction Trust facilitator Andi Norton says that the collaborative approach and first of its kind donor funding model contributed greatly to the outstanding results.

“We know that donor fatigue sets in when funders do not perceive a real return on social investment, so we decided to create a model whereby all our beneficiaries are collaborating, sharing expertise and working together and not in isolation as one often finds with some charitable organisations. We track progress, instil accountability, streamline services to reduce overlapping and manage spending the money raised wisely.”
