The GivenGain online donation portal is a secure method for donations from Mastercard and Visa account holders and international donations. Givengain also offers donors the option to give to their favourite project on a regular basis with total control.
Visit: https://www.givengain.com/c/africanconservationtrust/campaigns/ and click the big red “Donate now” button and follow the prompts (NB: we do not receive actual bank account details of donors; those are completely secure). If you would like to allocate your donation to a specific project, please note it in the message box; there are also a number of campaigns listed on the page, including Project Rhino, Rhino ART and Loziba Wildlife Reserve.
YOCO accepts card payments from local and international donors (excludes AMEX and Diners) and currently draws the smallest service charges (less than 4%), meaning your donation goes directly to where it is needed. Please note that amount is in South African Rand.
All payments are processed securely and separately by YOCO and GivenGain – we do not receive any personal or bank information.

DONATE & BENEFIT FROM TAX RELIEF (LOCAL COMPANIES & INDIVIDUAL TAX PAYERS)
African Conservation Trust (ACT) is a broad based environmental, heritage and conservation not for profit Trust, a registered NPO, with Public Benefit Organisation status and authorised to issue s18A (tax deduction) receipts to donors.
A donation toward the work of ACT qualifies for a tax deduction and an amount equal to up to 10% of your taxable income may be claimed as a tax deduction in each tax year (if you donate an amount or an asset which exceeds 10% of your taxable income, the balance may be claimed as a tax deduction in the following year).
Your tax burden is offset by this amount, whilst your donation goes to where it is needed most: building food gardens, supporting school sanitation systems and protecting our natural environment.
