Support Our Fundraising Initiatives

Fundraising initiatives is crucial for the Centre like our Club 500 project, which brings in a steady monthly income


Fundraising initiatives are crucial for the Centre’s sustainability, such as our Club 500 project, providing steady monthly income. Over the years, we’ve organized concerts with renowned artists and held events like our annual golf day. Additionally, our monthly bookstall and Hiring Supplies project contribute to our fundraising efforts.

Living in a self-help center means residents have to take charge of their lives. It’s a big responsibility and requires a lot of work to keep the center running smoothly. They live together, pooling their skills to manage the place.

To raise funds, the center has organized concerts with famous South African artists like Kurt Darren, Gerrie Pretorius, Nianell, Juanita du Plessis, etc. These concerts helped a lot, but it’s hard to do them often. That’s why other fundraising projects, like our Club 500, are essential. It brings in a steady income every month.

Consider leaving a legacy

When planning your Will, it’s natural to think of your loved ones first. But leaving a legacy is also a powerful way to support causes you care about, like helping persons with disabilities. Your gift can ensure that The Centre continues its important work, empowering individuals to be independent members of society.

There are different types of bequests you can make:

  1. Specific bequest: You give a specific item or asset, like shares of stock. Example: “I give 500 shares of stock.”

  2. Residual bequest: You designate a portion of what’s left after debts and expenses are paid. Example: “I give 50 percent of the residue and remainder of my estate.”

  3. Contingent bequest: Your gift takes effect only under certain conditions, like if your spouse doesn’t survive you. Example: “If my spouse does not survive me, I give to The Andries Olivier Durbanville Quadriplegic Centre the sum of…”

The Centre can’t offer legal or financial advice. It’s important to consult with your legal representative or financial advisor to decide how to give and the best wording for your bequest

Supporting the Andries Olivier Durbanville Quadriplegic Centre

We’re committed to succeeding in our efforts to support the center. We rely on a small state subsidy, donations, and various fundraising projects. The local community has generously supported us over the years, and at times, we’ve received financial assistance from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund.

Financially, it’s a challenge. Our fundraising efforts don’t always cover all our expenses, including maintenance, transportation, living costs, staff salaries, and utilities.

It’s important for potential donors to know that the Andries Olivier Durbanville Quadriplegic Centre is approved for Income Tax Exemption under Section 18A. This means that any financial donation is eligible for a tax refund.

Please have a look at all our fundraising projects:

We cultivate an environment of self-worth for ourselves and others and strive to be equal contributors to society and the economy. We don’t want handouts, but seek assistance from you and/or your business/organization in realizing our vision.
