The Fund currently relies entirely on private donors and Trusts – no State funding is received.  The organisation is governed by a Board of Trustees and the staff complement comprises the Director, Accounts Manager, TVET Manager, Student Liaison Officer and Sponsor Secretary.

Sponsor as an active citizen – Individual Investment

Your reason for giving
Individuals give because they wish to make a difference in the life of another – not necessarily in the life of someone “less fortunate”, but most certainly in the life of one who will “take hold of the opportunity to reach his/her full potential”. Allow us to present you with the opportunity of supporting such an individual.

At least 85c of every rand reaches the scholar and we make every effort to ensure that administration is funded from interest and special grants. It is important for us that you rest in the knowledge that your donation reaches the intended beneficiary.

The African Scholars’ Fund is a registered Non-Profit Organisation (NPO: 002-838; PBO: 130002416). An Educational Trust registered with the Master of the High Court. Donations are tax-deductible in terms of Section 18a of the Income Tax Act.

Know that at least 98% of your donation will directly benefit the designated youth, thus meeting the criteria as defined in Code Series 700 in the Codes of Good Practice.

Your donation will undoubtedly help this Fund facilitate the growth of our youth to reach their full potential resulting in a productive, economically empowered and responsible workforce.

Bequests

Your WISH for the future and your resolve to make it happen.

When your loved ones one day reflect on your legacy, bring into their awareness also that your legacy reflects All that You Love. If it be your Wish, then Will the things that really matter, to live on and on…

A bequest to the African Scholars’ Fund can be a specific sum, a percentage or the residual of your estate, shares, an insurance policy, property or items of value. Your financial advisor is undoubtedly the best person to advise you in this regard, OR you may make use of our simple and very straight forward Codicil – view Codicil.

The heart and the head need to work together when making decisions that will have a “lasting effect” on humanity. As such we wish to highlight the fact that charitable giving has tax benefits that can very effectively reduce your estate duty, and it presents you with an opportunity to make a substantial (future) donation that you might not be able to afford now.

Over 85c of every rand reaches the scholar. Administration is funded from interest and special grants, so give a donation to African Scholars’ Fund and you get the assurance that the money reaches the child or student.
