Tax Benefits for Donations & Sponsorships to SOS Children's Villages South Africa

Every day children and young people lose their home - and with it their childhood. With your donation, SOS Children's Villages helps children and families in need. Because a happy childhood helps for a lifetime.

Donations for children in need


With your Donation, you give abandoned children in South Africa the chance for a new, loving home - and with it new hope for the future.
With a selected donation project, you can also dedicate your donation to a specific purpose. It doesn't matter whether you make a Monthly Donation or want to help children in need once - every contribution counts!

Your help makes our work possible!

When you donate, you will receive a Section 18A tax certificate enabling you to claim a deduction from personal or corporate taxable income. Annual tax certificates will be issued at the end of the financial year unless requested earlier.

Tax-deductible donations (Section 18A receipts)

A taxpayer making a bona fide donation in cash or in kind to a section 18A-approved organisation is entitled to a deduction from taxable income if the donation is supported by the necessary Section 18A receipt issued by the organisation or, in certain circumstances, by an employee’s tax certificate reflecting the donations made by the employee. The amount of donations that may qualify for a tax deduction is limited.

Please feel free to contact us at info@sos.org.za to request a copy of your annual tax certificate.
