Epilepsy South Africa community on HealthUnlocked

Corporate Partnership

(Epilepsy South Africa is registered in terms of Section 18A of the Income Tax Act of South Africa and a proud Level 4 BEE contributor.)

(Download the National Office BEE certificate)

Corporate companies, trusts, foundations and organisations dedicated to our community show their caring spirit by taking up a leading role in assisting Epilepsy South Africa in the expansion of our service to even the remotest rural areas. Donations and grants from the corporate sector enable us to ensure access to services across the country and provide us with practical and financial assistance with projects.

In the recent words of Mr Raymond Ackerman:

"Too many companies forget their responsibility for triple reporting.  All of us are compelled not only to report on profits, but also on sustainability and community investment.

A further important note is that a company stands like a table on four legs: One leg for admin & operations, one for merchandise, one for marketing and the last, very important one: investment in your comsumers, aka Corporate Social Investment.  Without looking very carefully after each one of these legs, a company will not be succesfull in the long run"

Epilepsy South Africa offers many ways to invest in your community:

  • Corporate membership
    • recurring support from Companies who share Epilepsy SA's goals of community development, but also understand that the organisation needs operational capital to sustain its development services
  • Employee contributions through "Give as you earn"
    • Sanctioned by your company, employees receive options for monthly donation deductions from their salaries; eg. R5, R10, R20 or R50.  The process is reall easy to implement and we will gladly show you how.
