Developing Partnerships

The Bateleurs would not be in existence today without the effort , time and generosity of its partners.

First and foremost, our 130+ pilot partners and their aircraft, which range from fixed wing, to helicopters to light sport aircraft (microlights), and some experimental craft as well.  The willingness of these pilots to dedicate their time and aircraft, free of charge, accounts for roughly 70% of the organisation's operational budget.

Nearly all services for The Bateleurs are provided by donations-in-kind, including the commitment by our Board members, accounting and legal attorney services, fund-raising assistance, IT support, and many other aspects of our operations.

Since 1998 The Bateleurs has raised more than R2.7 million from corporate, donors , trust funds and philanthropists, not including donations-in-kind.

The Bateleurs is seeking like-minded, long-term donors to assist it to supplement its operations and expand its environmental missions throughout Southern Africa and beyond.  The organisation can provide many benefits to its donors in terms of the results and newsworthiness of its missions.  This can provide a multiple effect for donors who sponsor environmental causes.

What can be done:
Receipt of donations or goods in kind in support of operational and office management activities and costs
Corporate branding on the donor section of our website, and selected branding on specific media stories and flights
Company and individual donor recognition in newsletters and annual reports
Participation and representation at The Bateleurs AGMs and other functions
Private fundraising events in The Bateleurs’ name, providing that 100% of funds raised are for the organisation
A limited branding opportunity (for five years) with The Bateleurs proposed operational centre

What cannot be done:
Cannot accept payment for flights

Branding of aircraft, hangars, and other flying equipment
Free flights for donors for purposes other than environmental missions
