There is little chance of protecting the environment without a great sense of mutual responsibility........

Every gift counts and there are many ways in which to support the College and the training it conducts to upgrade the skills of people within the conservation sector whilst also playing a vital role in the protection of Africa’s biodiversity.
Bequests and planned gifts play an important role in our conservation education and training programme. By naming the College as a beneficiary in wills, trusts, retirement plans or insurance policies, you leave a legacy by becoming part of our future and the future of conservation. click here
One way of assisting us is by helping us lower our costs. By donating a required service or product to the SAWC, your company will enable us to keep administrative expenses and operational costs to a minimum, which will enable us to commit cash donations and income directly to conservation projects.
Training equipment and uniforms, IT equipment, vehicles, hardware, stationery items and food items to support the provision of healthy well-balanced meals etc. are just some of the donations in kind that the College needs and which would make a significant difference to reducing operational expenses.
The College welcomes joint initiatives involving the cooperative efforts of a "for profit" business and a non profit organisation such as ourselves for mutual benefit.
In combining respective interests in conservation, the College and the related organisation is able to create shareholder and social value; connect with a range of constituents (be they consumer, employees, or suppliers); and communicate the shared values of both organisations.
You can improve your company's scorecard through Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment [B-BBEE] by supporting training at the Southern African Wildlife College.
Alternative Prosperity (Pty) Ltd has verified the beneficiary status of South African Wildlife College’s training programmes (Advanced Certificate, Higher Certificate and Short Courses) for the purpose of issuing an Independent Competent Person’s Report (ICPR) as required in terms of the Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (B-BBEE) legislation.
Corporate funders can therefore claim B-BBEE socio-economic development points on their CSI contribution*. * B-BBEE scorecard points can be claimed depending on a company’s CSI contribution relative to its net profit for the year.
Individual donors who would like to support to the work that the College does by making a once-off or monthly pledge can deposit funds directly into the College's account via electronic transfer or debit order.
