Did you know that you can donate up to 10% of your income to the Other Foundation as a South African taxpayer and it will be deducted from your annual tax bill? Irrespective of whether you are an individual, company, or trust.

That is because the South African Revenue Service (SARS) recognizes the Other Foundation as a Public Benefit Organization (PBO).

Before the tax year closes on 29 February 2020, please donate to support the struggle for freedom, equality, and social inclusion of LGBTI people. We will send you a donation certificate to be submitted with your tax return, to reduce the amount of tax you pay.
