Acorn Foundation: Humble beginnings

Acorn Foundation NPC was founded due to passion and vision of a small group of people who simply couldn’t sit by and watch others suffer without offering a helping hand. As a result, the birth of the Foundation was a momentous and celebrated occasion. Although it started small, it has been carefully and lovingly nurtured into something quite beautiful and rare. Like a simple acorn that can create a thousand forests, the Foundation has grown to change and improve thousands of lives. And it is still growing and maturing into an initiative that not only touches lives, but impacts lives and livelihoods too.

A revolutionary ripple effect

The people behind the Foundation are united in their roles as servant leaders – leading the way in serving those less fortunate. They are also bonded in their progressive thinking and innovative ideas – cultivating them as revolutionary leaders. Together they aim to create an environment for all sentient beings to live in that is just, sustainable, and resilient for generations to come.

A soulful support structure

The Foundation also aims to support struggling organisations that are doing excellent work – work that aligns with our core values and causes. These organisations often do not have audited financials or may not be registered with SARS as a PBO (Public Benefit Organisation) – which means they cannot issue Section 18A tax donation receipts and BBBEE reports. The Foundation, in these instances, acts as a conduit because we are authorised to raise and receive funds on behalf of other NPOs.

Makes it Easy To Do Good

Acorn Foundation makes it easy for corporates and individuals, who may wish to make a difference, but might not have the time and resources, and who wish to know that they partner with a reliable, transparent and passionate organisation, which will ensure that their money is put to good use and to support their causes.

Section 18A Tax Donation Receipts are issued for all cash and other bona fide donations made to the organisation.
