The Society is a non-profit organization that works in conjunction with the North West Parks & Tourism Board. Once a project has been agreed on by the Board and the Friends of Pilansberg Society (FOPS) committee, the Society attempts to obtain funding through both corporate and private sponsorship.

This is the ideal opportunity for you or your organisation to become involved in the ongoing conservation of our environment. All donations will be acknowledged in a manner most effective to the donor.

Our fundraising number is: 006-421 NPO

Donations are welcome and can be deposited directly into our bank account.
