The Reddam Foundation is a Public Benefit Organisation. Donations, therefore, are tax deductible in terms of Section 18A (1) (a) of the Income Tax Act No 58 of 1962 as amended. Donations from overseas can also enjoy tax benefits. Please consult your tax adviser for assistance with planning your giving.
As a general guideline, benefactors become Foundation Members if they have contributed, or decided to contribute, more than R1000 to the Foundation. This contribution includes any Gift Aid or other tax relief that the Foundation is able to claim. Members will have their donations recognised and will receive annual reports and accounts.
Reddam House Constantia welcomes support from individuals, foundations and organisations and would be delighted to discuss ways in which relationships may be fostered with potential supporters.
We pledge to treat our supporters with the highest level of care and respect. We have drafted our Supporter Charter to assure our donors of the integrity and accountability of our development programme. While we are happy to receive gifts which will support a particular aspect of our work, Reddam House Constantia cannot accept gifts when a condition of such acceptance would compromise our autonomy and academic freedom.
