You want to change the world, but you don’t know where to start. You are passionate about making a difference and want to make an impact through social justice. The world is changing at a rapid pace, and so are funding models for non-profit entities. As conventional funding channels dry up, nonprofits are looking at more creative ways to generate income, whilst being careful not to jeopardise their coveted tax-exempt status with SARS.

Various forms of non-profit structures are emerging, which range from non-profits delving into business activities to earn income, to hybrid structures such as social enterprises.

Legalese can help nonprofits to explore alternative funding models and structures. We work with trusts, associations, non-profit companies as well as for-profit entities that are looking at ways to enhance their social impact. There are various facets to running a non-profit, which require compliance on all spectrums, including tax and governance. Our service offering includes non-profit company registrations, application for PBO and Section 18A (Donor Deduction) status to SARS, registration with the Department of Social Development, training workshops, volunteer policies, social enterprise structuring and more.
