how to get involved

To achieve our vision, Ethelbert CYCC seeks to establish meaningful partnerships with like-minded organisations whose strategy supports social upliftment and change. However, the support to our cause is not solely focused on monetary contributions but in-kind contributions as well. Our many fundraising efforts assist to either supplement, expand or advance our organisation ensuring we are able to continue the work we do.

There is an expectation by the Government that civil society becomes more involved in sustaining the work of charitable organisations. The B-BBEE legislation is one way in which the state encourages companies to support charitable organisations like Ethelbert CYCC. As a registered Non-Profit Organisation fully compliant as defined by that legislation, Ethelbert CYCC represents an attractive Socio-Economic Development opportunity for Corporates to invest the 1% NPAT target and in this way, earn the full 5 points available on the B-BBEE score card. 

Funding partnerships

For every R1 (One Rand) subsidised R2 (Two Rand) needs to be raised.

The realisation of our goals is dependant upon the establishment and strengthening of funding partnerships. As a registered NPO and approved PBO, Ethelbert CYCC is able to provide its doners with Section 18A certificates which afford donors tax relief because they chose to support our cause. All contributions are measured according to SARS practices and valid within the tax period of the contribution.

Host a Child

Make a child's day!

Ethelbert is looking for host families who will assist by providing everyday life experiences for children who have been deprived of these due to being abandoned, abused or severely neglected. Host families can take a child out for a day, a sleep-over or for weekends and school holidays.

All host placements are carefully planned, and on-going support is given through regular meetings and telephonic contact to assist the host family in meeting the child’s social and emotional needs.

Ideally, host families must be willing to become persons on whom the child can rely. Therefore, only those who are able to make this commitment should consider becoming involved in the host programme.

Make a Difference

All funds raised go directly to the evolution of our beneficiaries from previously disadvantaged children and youth to successful, well-adjusted societal change-makers of tomorrow.
