The Covid-19 pandemic has had a serious impact on us, as our traditional supporters have moved their funding to fight the worldwide Covid-19 crisis.

Since our formation in 2000, South African History Online has become the largest popular history project in the country. Just over 6 million people annually use our resources.

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic our income from donors and loyal supporters has shrunk, we need your support to keep our research and educational and community projects going.

We once again call on you for your support. Your support will help us:

  • expand our student internship programme
  • strengthen our research and partnership programmes with universities, archive community history and heritage groups
  • develop new resources to support teach and learning in our schools
