Please note:

  • If your business has a CSI directive, Calabash Trust can develop and implement sustainable projects that complement our respective goals and objectives. View our BEE Verification. We have experience and good references working with Corporate Social Investment (CSI) funding, for example:

 African Bank  /  Hella Automotive

  • In South Africa, up to 10% of your taxable income can be donated to charity, an amount that is then deducted from your total owed tax. By donating towards our programmes, your tax money will contribute towards sustainable social and environmental development. Calabash will then issue you a section 18a tax certificate in exchange for your donation which decreases your total amount of total tax you have to pay to the government. To request a Section 18A tax certificate after a donation, please email
  • Gift Aid is available to UK taxpayers.
  • All our accounts are reviewed annually and are available upon request.
  • Please ensure that your name or reference (if you choose to remain anonymous), and the name of the project you wish to contribute towards is included when a deposit is made, e.g. John, ABCD Joe Slovo (see Funding Options and Wish Lists above). If not included we will use our discretion with allocations.
  • Regular updates are posted on our website, with process reports, quarterly newsletters and annual reports in resources.
