Annual Donations

Annual donations will significantly contribute to the day-to-day operational costs of providing these crucial services to our young children. Donations in excess of R10,000 will offset the costs of:

• Fuel for our vehicles to transport children to hospital for their medical check-ups. We spend approximately R885k per annum.

• A minimum of 1,095 meals, school lunches and snacks for all school-going patients, snack packs for patients attending hospital check-ups and meals and snack packs for patients attending outreach programmes. An annual average cost of R1.2m per annum.

• Ever-increasing electricity costs as well as security, cleaning and pest control services, to name but a few (an average of R4.4m per annum). There are also regular capital upgrades that delve significantly into our budget. We are mandated to ensure that we have reliable energy supply for children who require oxygen. Recent maintenance services have revealed that due to the age of the generator, parts are not readily available. The impact of loadshedding necessitates that we consider the upgrade of an ageing generator. A solar energy installation is also being considered. However, this is a costly exercise but must be included in our capital budget.

Friends of St Joseph's

Making smaller monthly gift donations will help cover the expenses of our patient welfare. With over 500 nappies being changed every day, we have a huge demand. Toiletries and towels are equally important, cleanliness and hygiene take precedence at St Joseph’s. A monthly contribution from just R100 can make a difference.

Leave a bequest

A will is very personal and should benefit family and loved ones first. You may, however, wish to consider a leaving a legacy to St. Joseph’s which would be exempt from estate duty.

Leaving a charitable bequest in your will could make the world of difference to our children in need, while such a gift enjoys tax advantages. This is a win-win for everyone, and you are doing something amazing that people will remember you for.
