This July, we launch our Clothe-a-Child Campaign and we’re hoping that caring friends like you will invest in the lives of children in dire need. Through this project we aim to provide every child in our Tales of Hope programme with a full school uniform. It costs R750 for a full school uniform per child – but any contribution we receive will be a great help.
Often, due to circumstances beyond their own control, boys and girls living in devastating conditions go to school with the only uniform they have . . . usually a hand-me-down from their older siblings because new uniforms are a luxury they just can’t afford. If you believe that every school going child deserves to go to school with a uniform to call their own – Please make your donation here.
Your support means so much to us at Focus on the Family Africa and to the families across the continent that we serve. There are many ways to give to the work that God has called us to. We accept one-time and monthly donations online through our secure website, over the telephone (031 716 3300) or through the mail.
We are truly blessed and thank God for those of you who regularly support the ministry of Focus on the Family through all forms of giving. We are especially grateful for our donors who choose to give on a regular basis through online monthly EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) giving. These gifts have even more impact as they reduce administrative processing costs, are immediately available for ministry and provide us with a stable income stream to allow for new and ongoing outreach.
Section 18A is the way our government encourages individuals and companies to give to Public Benefit Organizations that qualify for the Section 18A status.
Our core work is the promotion or protection of family stability, our desire to see families thrive.
What this means for you as an individual or company, is that, if you give us a gift:
minimum is R100 maximum is up to 10% of your annual taxable income (you can give more, but the exemption only qualifies for up to 10%) you can receive a certificate from us (we must have all your details), that you can use to submit your tax to SARS. SARS will then deduct the amount you have given as above, from your taxable income, which will reduce the tax you pay. Focus will issue you with a certificate in May, for gifts given from 1 March (previous year) to 28 February (current year). Please ensure that we have your updated details.
For certificate requests please email email@example.com Focus has also been given BBBEE Status.
