1. Fundraising and Donations
As you all know, the Alumni society is a registered non-profit organisation that relies on your humble donations and support. We kindly request that you support our efforts of empowering Tsogo Secondary School learners by making a donation to the society and ensuring that the event on the 26thSeptember is a success.
No Donation is too small and there are a few alumni who even run regular monthly donations of as little as R50. This year we’d like to make your donation a lot more relevant by letting you ‘BUY A SEAT’ for a learner at the careers expo. Each learner’s seat will ‘cost’ you R50 but we encourage you to buy more… for your R50 donation you’ll give one learner a chance to sit and listen to career guidance from people out in various career fields, universities, alumni… in addition we’ll throw in lunch for attendees, coffee and refreshments and a t-shirt for each learner to remind them of the day’s event!
We humbly request that you make any contribution you can by depositing money into our bank account below. Please send us an email confirming your donation or simply put your name / surname down as the ‘Reference’ so we may acknowledge your donation and put you on our ‘Honoured Donor’ list – this list and the number of sits you bought will be published in the next newsletter.

In addition, you’re not limited to only financial contributions.

If your company also has t-shirts or stationery to donate to the kids at Tsogo (could be your company branded pens, writing pads, etc.) please don’t be shy to get in touch with us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we’ll arrange to pick them up from you and distribute to the learners during the expo!
Thank you in advance for your support!
