GAP ACCELERATE

The GAP Accelerate program helps Changemakers (CMs) to outsource their non-core services needs, enabling them to focus on the core objectives of their social initiative.

GAP Changemakers require many resources to create the foundation for their organisations which are often not focussed on. These organisational practices and functions become key pillars that strengthen the activities of the social initiative/project. The four pillars we are looking at are ~ Legal, Accounting, Communication-Design and Technology services.
We at GAP aim to provide you easy access to these professional services so that you can focus on your core impact activities. These professional service partners have been selected by GAP and have agreed to contribute their services probono or at subsidised rates to the Changemakers.

The GAP Accelerate Program connects you, the Changemaker, to a relevant service partner that can support you in accelerating your changemaking journey.
