About Us

The Story so far...

What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.

Nelson Mandela

Founded in 2017 by Zahir Mirza and Hoosen Agjee and based in Durban South Africa, ActiveDonor has evolved from a simple Donor database into an all-in-one Donor Management and Fundraising platform empowering South African NPOs.

When we first started out, our mission was to build a simple and easy to use Donor management system for a Durban based charitable organization so that they could productively manage their donors. While the initial application served its purpose well, we soon realized that this may be of value to other organizations and NPOs within South Africa.

In late 2019, we decided to revisit the original ActiveDonor application with a renewed focus to make it available to all organizations within South Africa. With time and a lot of feedback from our valuable users, we decided to take the leap and build ActiveDonor into a fully fledged NPO platform that we could offer to all NPOs in South Africa.

Its been a long journey but we’re here and proudly serving organizations all over South Africa. We are thrilled to welcoming you on board and being a part of our journey!
