Donate - How you can help

We do not receive any funding or aid whatsoever from the government, or any government-related organisation, relying solely on the support of private companies via their Corporate Social Investment and Socio-Economic Development divisions. Consequently, we are reliant on the generosity of the public at large in our primary goal of caring for the underprivileged and those who are in need on a day-to-day basis.

Tax Exemption

We are registered with the South African Revenue Services as a Public Benefit Organisation. As such, any financial or in-kind contributions made to us can be declared so that you may be rewarded by means of tax relief on your next return.
The SARS Basic Guide to Tax Deductible Donations states that a taxpayer making a bona fide donation in cash or of property in kind to an approved organisation is entitled to a deduction from taxable income, if the donation is supported by the necessary receipt issued by the organisation or, in certain circumstances, by an employees’ tax certificate reflecting the donations made by the employee.

The Last Hope Organisation issues the necessary PBO Certificate and invoice (which is used as a receipt upon verification of the donation on your end) via email so that you may claim your tax rewards.

SARS PBO Tax Invoice

We will, as we are entitled to do, issue you with a SARS PBO Invoice (which acts as a receipt upon verification of the donation on your end), so that you can claim this welcome input against your taxable income and be rewarded again by means of tax relief. To request an invoice, please get in touch with us, and indicate when your donation was made as well as what reference was used. If required, we may request that you send us the applicable payment notification in PDF format from your bank.

An invoice may only be issued if your donation leaves an audit trail – that is, the donation reflects as income in The Last Hope Organisation banking account or proof of value is provided for donations made in kind.

 

Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment (BEE)

We are currently a Level 1 Contributor to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment and, as such, your donations qualify for valuable points on your company’s next BEE Certificate. Since inception, more than 75% of our beneficiaries are classified as ‘black’ – that is, African, Coloured and Asian – and previously disadvantaged.

The racial profile is not managed by ourselves – our beneficiaries provide to us, as often as possible, the amount of children in their care classified as ‘black’. Our current Beneficiary Ratio Policy can be downloaded from the file list on this page.
We encourage corporate entities to enter into a ‘giving agreement’ (such as a Socio-Economic Development agreement) with us. As we are a Level 1 Contributor, and provided the beneficiaries of your donations (1-2% of your Net Profit After Tax, NPAT) are more than 75% black, you will be able to earn up to 135% on your spend, according to our 2016/17 BEE Certificate.

As required for your audit, we will provide confirmation from an Independent Competent Person regarding our beneficiary racial profile, should one be required.

Anonymity

If you wish to remain anonymous, you may do so by simply using a generic reference, such as “WEB Donation” or “WEB [Fund] Donation”. Please include the word “WEB” so that we may identify where donations are coming from.

Existing Donors

If you have worked with us in the past (via our call centre), please do not use a “WEB” reference as we use these payment references to determine where donations are being referred from.

We care about your privacy

Any information you send to us is kept strictly confidential at all times, and will not be subject to disclosure to anyone, unless required by South African law. In such a case, we would follow all the necessary steps to make sure that any such information being requested is being done so for a legitimate reason and that the requester is someone with the authority to make the request.

Your donations are warmly and gratefully accepted – for, and by the children that benefit from them.
