SA Medical and Education Foundation
The SAME Foundation is a Non-Profit Organization that raises funds and manages corporate social investment allocations to improve the health and education environment in South Africa. The SAME Foundation has created a platform whereby private and corporate donors can make a tangible and sustainable difference with their funds.
The Hospitals and Schools we work with rely solely on government financing and are utilized by over 85% of our country’s population, and are therefore under severe strain. Our aim is to assist donors by aligning their annual donation budgets to projects where the investment will make the biggest tangible impact. We have completed over 60 projects in the past 17 years, positively influencing millions of South Africans. The SAME Foundation takes all the research work and hassles out of finding worthy projects and facilitates, the entire process from identifying the need to the grand opening or unveiling of the completed project. We focus our effort on facilities in poverty-stricken communities where there is no short/medium term governmental budget for improvements. This means that, without intervention by you and the SAME Foundation, these communities won’t be able to receive the healthcare and education that they deserve.
Not only does this ultimately save lives and educate children, but it allows the staff to do their jobs efficiently in an environment that enhances their morale. Patient and student comfort are essential to our outcome on each project, this is ensured by supplying each of our partner facilities with all the necessary equipment, furniture required to operate effectively. While our main focus is on improving the state of our country’s health and educational facilities, we also realize that our donors deserve recognition for their involvement in the transformations we perform. We reward all donations with a section 18A donation receipt and BEE letter of thanks making the donations Tax deductible and allows the donor to claim full BEE points under the SED category. We also facilitate on-site donor recognition through different branding options and also arrange media PR.
