Does your think tank face fundraising challenges due to limited resources or an absence of a philanthropic culture in your country? Have the traditional fundraising methods not provided the funding needed to ensure the success of your organization? On July 20, Frans Cronje, CEO of the Institute of Race Relations (IRR) in South Africa, will join Atlas Network for a webinar to share how he converted IRR’s fundraising strategy from the traditional project-based to one that generates a sustainable revenue stream.

Frans Cronje is CEO of the Institute of Race Relations. He was educated at St. John’s College in Houghton and the University of the Witwatersrand and holds a Ph.D. in scenario planning from North West University. He served with the South African police, worked as a horse-riding instructor and later logger in the United States, and completed a yearlong expedition that crossed the African continent from Cape Town to Cairo. He joined the IRR team in 2004 and established its Centre For Risk Analysis, which specializes in using scenarios to help business and government leaders make decisions about investment and policy in South Africa. He has presented scenarios to over 100 South African corporations and foreign investors. He is the author of A Time Traveller’s Guide to Our Next Ten Years (Tafelberg 2014) and A Time Traveller’s Guide To South Africa 2030 (Tafelberg 2017). Over the past two years, his scenarios have been presented to an estimated 20,000 people across three continents and have been influential in shaping investor perception towards South Africa. His work has been widely cited in the media from Volksblad to the Wall Street Journal. He writes a column for Rapport newspaper.
