Sage Foundation programmes

Sage Foundation is engaged in a range of development programmes that provide support and funding to non-profits.

Pathways back to work

Sage Pathways is a support, development, training, and recruitment programme designed to help people enter the workplace or return to work. The Pathways model delivers a series of work-readiness sessions covering interview tips, assessment centre skills, personal branding, and returning to work with confidence. We have delivered four programmes, including virtual work readiness events in South Africa, the UK, and North America. Of the 172 attendees, more than 70% were women. In South Africa, we hired 13 people living with disabilities within our customer services and finance operations. 


To ensure the next generation has the right skills for the digital economy, we need to focus on developing STEM skills in young people. We have a longstanding partnership with FIRST LEGO League, a programme that challenges young people aged four to 16, to build robots using LEGO bricks and components. 

$5 Million Fundraising Challenge

Since the start of our journey to support local non-profits through fundraising, Sage Foundation has worked with colleagues, business partners, customers, and the community to raise over $3 million to support more than 1,000 charitable causes. We launched the $5 Million by 2030 Challenge to not only raise more than ever but to help those who need it most. Over the past seven years, our community of fundraisers have walked, cycled, run, climbed, and hiked hundreds of thousands of kilometres to raise money for non-profits and causes close to their hearts. 

Sage Foundation NPO Success

Sage Foundation is committed to supporting non-profit organisations (NPOs). That’s why we developed Sage Foundation NPO Success, providing discounted Sage Business Cloud subscriptions so you can save time, reduce costs, eliminate errors and achieve compliance.
