THE Community Chest of the Eastern Cape is celebrating a number of changes this year, including new premises, a new CEO and a newly elected board of directors.

As one of the oldest charity organisations in South Africa, the Community Chest assists organisations by providing funding and gifts in kind. Community Chest celebrated their 65th anniversary last year.

A new chapter awaits as they will be moving soon to their premises in Newton Park under the leadership of their newly appointed CEO, Jimmy Gotyana.

Gotyana has more than 30 years’ experience in the NGO sector. He is also the national president of the South African National NGO Coalition (SANGOCO) and serves on the South African Council on International Relations (SACOIR), which advises the Minister of International Relations, Co-operation and the government on international relations policies.

“Our aim is to alleviate poverty and improve the lives of the vulnerable. We serve as a conduit for our donors, ensuring them that their donations are invested in all our beneficiaries and community partners in an objective and transparent manner.

“Major donors have confidence in the Community Chest because of our auditing process in selecting beneficiaries,” Gotyana said.
