YOU CAN HELP:

Donate to SAPF's Emergency Fund to assist NPOs during the COVID-19 crisis

Southern Africa Philanthropy Foundation (SAPF) has launched an emergency fund to support local Non-Profit Organisations (NPOs) during this challenging period.

With the economic and health challenges emerging from the COVID-19 crisis, thousands of NPOs are set to be impacted by funding shortages, which will result in a reduction or discontinuation of services and dedicated staff losing their jobs.

To keep these critical services going, SAPF is mobilising support to make funding available to help NPOs who render essential services to the most marginalised individuals, groups and communities in our society.

We are calling on both individuals and corporates to donate. The relevant bank details for donations are listed below.

SAPF will process all donations and ensure that due diligence, governance compliance and reporting are fully implemented. SAPF will further ensure that all donations are designated to validated beneficiary organisations. Donors will also be issued with Section 18(a) certificates for income tax purposes.
