According to statistics 56% of South Africa can be considered poor. Lesedi Community Centre aims to address this dire situation. Lesedi Community Centre has the capacity to make a difference. Our vision is to feed, house, uplift and train the destitute, poor and broken in the community to again make a meaningful contribution to society. The Lesedi Community Centre is a non-profit Organisation based in Heidelberg Gauteng. We are a reputable organisation with sound financial management and record keeping. We are registered at all relevant bodies and 100% compliant according to law. We are also registered as a PBO with a good standing status with SARS and an approved Section 18A Organisation.
The South African Government has recognised that certain organisations are dependent upon the generosity of the public and to encourage that generosity has provided a tax deduction for certain donations made by taxpayers. The eligibility to issue tax deductible receipts is dependent on section 18A approval granted by the TEU, and is restricted to specific approved organisations which use the donations to fund specific approved Public Benefit Activities.
A taxpayer making a bona fide donation in cash or of property 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 employees’ tax certificate reflecting the donations made by the employee.
We are an organisation with passion for our community and we consider our partnerships and networking as part of our recipe for success. Due to our BBEEE level and PBO status we are in the position to offer benefit to any Company that partner with us to better our community.
We look forward in forming partnerships with people, companies and organisations that share our vision and mission.
