Please note: We do not make donations to any organisations or individuals. We are a non-profit organisation raising funds and donations in kind for our programmes.
What about Section 18A Certification Rights?
Yes! For all donations received, Section 18A Certificates can be awarded. These certificates can be presented to SARS for further tax relief.
