DONATIONS: Monetary/Goods in Kind :
The Anna Foundation is a nonprofit charity organisation. The Anna Foundation is also a registered Public Benefit Organisation according to Section 18A of the Income Tax Act.
TAX BENEFITS FOR SOUTH AFRICAN DONORS: All donations (including goods in kind) are tax deductible in the hands of the donor (tax exempt). Please request this Section18A donation receipt for tax purposes when making a donation.
CORPORATE DONORS: Did you know that for all donations (including goods in kind) we can provide you with our organisation profile and beneficiary declaration (as stated in the manual for B-BBEE verification), which will automatically give you B-BBEE points towards your scorecard. By donating to the Anna Foundation you could earn the last few points you require to bring you up to a Level 1 or 2 BEE company.
Small and medium businesses, you can earn 25 out of a required 65 points by donating to the Anna Foundation. As a business owner, you will earn points under the ‘socio-economic development’ category on your BEE scorecard when you contribute to Anna Foundation. We will then issue you with a receipt which you can then submit in order to get your points. If you donate 1% of your net profit after tax you will score 25 points, as long as the charity is *
compliant and you submit your supporting documentation. Professional verification agencies will certify your BEE status - a list can be found on www.abva.co.za
*Compliant : The full value of the contributions made is recognizable if at least 75% of the value directly benefits previously disadvantaged South Africans. The Anna Foundation’s beneficiaries meet this criterion.
All activities initiated and implemented by the Anna Foundation rely on funding and donations. A donation received, no matter how big or small, will change the lives of the children with whom we work !
JOIN THE 1%CLUB
By contributing 1% of your salary each month (or whatever amount you can afford), you will automatically be invited to attend exciting social events which are held for club members every few months. These events serve as a chance to have fun and meet like-minded people. All member's contributions are pooled together and go towards helping the Anna Foundation children get the education they need.
Take a look at the 1%Club infographic here or go to their website to find out more about the exciting events that take place.
DIFFERENT WAYS IN WHICH TO VOLUNTEER
Be a Support Runner:
For a working person, being a support runner is a great way to join in. At each month‘s fun run we need support runners who encourage the younger children (grades R to 2) to run the 5km route. So, if you don’t know what to do with your Saturday mornings, why not add your name to our support runner mailing list and you’ll be notified of each month’s fun run details. You do not have to commit to coming to every month’s run and you don't have to be ultra fit but if you are active it helps. Most rewarding are the smiles on completion of the 5kms and the sense of achievement which can be clearly seen on the faces of the little ones.
Volunteer Your Time at a Farm Project (Remedial/Sports):
We do not allow volunteers on a short term basis as we need to ensure that the children are not exposed to people coming and going at different times. Volunteers who want to become involved on the farms are required to make a longer term commitment (not less than 4 months) and to commit to being at the project every week on a specific day. Should you wish to give of your time and assist the children as a remedial or sports volunteer, please fill in the Volunteer Form and email back to info [at] annafoundation [dot] com (you can also request the form to be emailed as a Word document)
Organise a Fun Friday (ideal for companies and individuals)
Fridays are flexible days on the farms where individuals or groups of volunteers can have the opportunity to run a project for an afternoon (perfect for companies to become involved). In order to ensure that the children will have a well-thought out, smooth flowing and enjoyable day, volunteers first need to plan what they would like to do with the children for the 2 hours which our staff then approves to ensure feasibility of the idea. So, if you would like to show the children how to paint their own cushion covers followed by an exciting treasure hunt combined with an obstacle course (for example), please get in touch with us. We'd love to hear your ideas!
Support through Sport
RAISE FUNDS THROUGH SPORT:
Whether you run, ride or swim, you can help to raise funds for the Anna Foundation through your sport. Why not set up your profile on a reputable fundraising site such as BackaBuddy? Let us know of your plans - we'll even do all the admin for you - and spread the word about the event you're training for, for example the Two Oceans Marathon. Ask your family and friends to show their support by sponsoring your efforts online. We'll help you get the word out too! Take a look here for an example on the BackaBuddy site
WEAR OUR KIT AND HELP US GET OUR NAME 'OUT THERE: We have a number of supporters who have run up, over and through South African (and Lesotho!) mountain ranges dressed in Anna Foundation gear. We have also had our yellow t-shirt proudly paraded overseas: Jessa Stevens has competed in long distance races all the way over in the USA and Margriet Prins has walked 200km through the Netherlands for us. Cyclists need not feel left out - we also have a cycling kit in both adult and children's sizes (see below). Whether you run, walk or cycle, we really appreciate the stars who are 'active' in support of the Anna Foundation and by wearing our t-shirt, you’re helping us get our name “out there”! If you are interested in "wearing our yellow flag", please contact us!
