Why Donate to the Children’s Hospital Trust?

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _


All donations made to the Children’s Hospital Trust are exempt from donations tax and qualify the donor for deductions from taxable income in accordance with the income tax act 58 of 1962.

If you give more than R100 per annum, you will receive a Section 18A tax certificate enabling you to claim a deduction from personal or corporate taxable income.

Tax certificates will be issued at the end of the financial year unless requested earlier.

Donor deductibility applies to cash donations, bequests and donations in kind.

When you submit the receipt with your annual income tax return, you can get up to a maximum

deduction of 10% of your annual taxable income or R100 000 (whichever is greater). To read more about PBO and Section 18A criteria, log on to the SARS website.


The Children’s Hospital Trust fundraises for the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital of which the majority (96%-98%) of the 260 000 patient visits per year are from children that are black as per the Codes of Good Practice.
