Individuals - Your philanthropy vision

Establishing a private foundation trust is one way in which families can create a lasting legacy. We will help you set up a private foundation trust and ensure compliance with all necessary regulatory and legislative requirements.
What is important is to see your gratuitous giving benefitting both the communities and the causes that you seek to support through a structured social investment and achieving your philanthropy objectives well into the future.
We will assist you to apply for the relevant tax exemptions and registration as a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO).
  • Facilitate registration and setup
  • Tax exemption applications
We can serve as the operational office for the administration of your foundation trust, identify and approve causes/organisations and monitor and report on the utilisation of the grants/donations.

Organisations - Measurable impact

We assist existing public benefit organisations (PBOs) to comply with relevant legislative requirements. We can serve as the operational office for the administration of your public benefit activities, identify and approve causes and non-profit organisations, monitor and report on the utilisation of the grants/donations. All approved causes and NPOs will undergo the necessary due diligence process.

A non-profit Organisation can be associations, charities, corporates, and other voluntary organisations formed to further public service objectives. We assist these organisations to comply with relevant legislative requirements including tax exemptions approval. We assist them in identifying and matching donors. We work with the NPOs to monitor and report on the utilisation of the grants/ donations.

CSI - Social impact

Structure your corporates social investments initiative to be more impactful. We assist corporate social investment (CSI) programmes with effective administration and governance.
South African companies are playing a significant role in the societal transformation through their (CSI) initiatives. CSI encompasses projects that are external to the normal business activities of a company and are not for purposes of increasing company profit.
Having a socio-economic development (SED) structure enable CSI initiatives to be more effective and impactful. A company's funding of corporate foundations will qualify for SED points, distributions to beneficiaries can only be made after careful consideration and due diligence of the intended beneficiaries.
These projects are developmental in nature and utilise company resources to benefit and uplift communities. We assist corporates who have existing CSI programmes or who want to set up such structures with effective administration, governance, facilitated due diligence of beneficiaries and approval, monitoring and reporting.

Helping you make a difference

Philanthropy is not about giving money, but about solving problems.

Making a difference starts with change

We believe that everyone in South Africa and around the world should be asking themselves these simple questions:
  • How can I influence change?
  • Can I do something to help my community?
  • What will my legacy be?
In answering these questions one would need a planned approach, which will create sustainable long-term change.
