Through the gathering of signatures for our party registration, we have discovered a high-turnout, ultra-low-cost mobilisation and organising strategy. Progress Party attracts people through our branches’ ability immediately to improve people's chances of finding work, along with the hope Progress Party brings for 2024.
Your donation will help us cover the country with our branches and pay the R700,000 election deposits to appear on the national and provincial ballots.
Any amount would be highly appreciated. No minimum (and no maximum).
Thank you for considering a donation. We incur a 3.6% fee when donations are received by card so, where possible, we prefer an EFT.
Please note: OfW voluntarily gave up its tax exempt status (exemption number 930067474) as of 1 March 2023 in order to advance PROGRESS as a political party. Effective 1 March 2023, your monetary (or property) donation to OfW is no longer tax deductible.

If you're a coder, our website is constantly being developed in response to member needs. It is built in C#, SQL Server, BLOB storage and hosted on Microsoft Azure.
Our many unemployed volunteers run our branches on a daily basis and give our unemployed movement power, compassion and useful services in many communities.
Alastair McKenzie has donated many hours of his time working on our website. He created our CV checker - one of our most utilised functions. It assists volunteers in giving member CVs a thorough review. He has also undertaken a document storage migration for us.
Uta Reinöhl helps us with substantial and thorough editing of our press pieces. She is also a constant source of help on the tone and content of our messaging and is both a font of ideas and tireless sounding board.
Building a new political party is an enormous challenge. We can use all the help we can get!
While we make efforts to ensure our website and workshops work on even the most basic smartphone, it is almost always easier to use a computer for job seeking. As such we are always keen to receive more laptops for use in our branches. We will wipe the hard drive completely. Not just of your personal data but also your operating system will be wiped and the Ubuntu operating system will be installed.
We offer employers candidates absolutely for free. However, many employers don't yet come directly to us to supply them with candidates. We would love your help opening relationships with the talent administrators and HR departments of all the larger employers.
