The last day of the South African Tax Season:
Sunday, 28 February 2021
This tax end-year, we want to encourage you to do things differently and put your money where your heart is. As a South African individual or business, you can reduce your tax by making a donation of up to 10% of your annual taxable income.
Beautiful Gate South Africa is a registered non-profit (005-086NPO) and Public Benefit Organisation with Section 18A status (130002944) that seeks to share the love of God as we care for and protect children, empower and preserve families and mobilise our community to do the same. Any donation you make will go to one of our three different programmes – Child Health, Family Strengthening or Education. These are areas of great need within our South African peri-urban township context and have a significant impact on the lives of children and their families. If you would like to, you can specify which programme you want to support.
For South African companies, we are also a Level One B-BBEE contributor which means that your donation to us may earn you BEE points. If you would still like to make a contribution before the end of the tax year (Sunday, 28th February 2021) please donate online or via Snapscan (below).
Please send your payment confirmation and request for a Section 18A receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org with your/your business full name and residential/physical address. If you would prefer to pay via EFT, please send an email to request bank details.
We hope that you will partner with us as we work to bring about positive change in our community.
Where your contribution goes in 2021 ...
1200 orphans and vulnerable children will be supported in the community, to make sure they can access essential government services and attend school. They will be given a safe place to learn and play after school, and many will be supported with additional therapeutic services, like counselling and support groups and hundreds of children will attend our holiday clubs. 180 parents and guardians will be trained in parenting skills and community mobilisation with even more attending child abuse prevention training and child protection awareness events.
COVID protocols are in place for all programmes.
Welcome to a window into the lives and issues facing children in the Crossroads community on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa.
