Important notice about Nelson Mandela Day
- Sponsorship must be sourced in a way that builds upon community resources and not divert funding away from communities.
- Organisations must therefore not use Mandela Day as a vehicle for their organisational fundraising. The spirit of Mandela Day is that we do more with what we’ve got.
- It is one thing to acknowledge the support of a donor for community initiatives; it is another thing to directly associate Mandela Day with a commercial brand. All of our corporate partners have accepted this principle and do not expect their brand to be advertised alongside the Mandela Day logo, especially on social media networks.
