We are a conduit for corporate giving that uplifts those in local communities

Community Chest Durban provides your business with the opportunity to tailor-make how and where your corporate giving investment is spent. Your CSI regulatory requirements will be fulfilled while you support what you are passionate about as an organisation. With 105 impact partners, in over 10 fields of service, you can restore dignity and hope in the lives of the people you want to reach the most.

As a registered NPO, Community Chest provides donors with Section 18A Certificates and a B-BBEE Due Diligence Report. A company can donate up to 10% of its annual taxable income to charitable causes and receive the full amount as a tax rebate from SARS. Community Chest Durban has Level 1 B-BBEE status and is verified annually by an independent rating agency.  

You can achieve this in a number of ways:

  • Your company can donate a sum of money and Community Chest will allocate the funds towards its monthly grant programme for Impact Partners.
  • Donor Advised Giving enables a corporate or individual to specify which NPO Impact Partners they would like to support and the allocated amount is disbursed accordingly by Community Chest.
  • Donations in Kind are re-distributed to impact partners that can make the best use of the type of goods.
  • Workplace Giving allows employees of companies to donate an elected amount via their employer’s payroll system.
  • Matched Giving is undertaken by corporates that equal the total contributions of their employees via Workplace Giving.
  • Engage with the corporate department to find out how maximum points can be achieved on the Socio-Economic Development section of the B-BBEE Scorecard.

Our stringent screening processes and constant monitoring of all our impact partner provides you with peace of mind that all your funds donated will be allocated where it is intended and where it is needed most. Collaborate with us for a cause you are passionate about, and we can provide a CSI proposal that will directly impact this need, while ensuring good governance and accountability.
