SAveabusiness is a transparent fundraising platform that will host the small businesses most negatively affected by COVID-19.
We need your assistance to help us achieve our weekly set goals.
Take a look at our current 10 small businesses for Phase 1.
Grow & enrich our communities through local business support.
During the global pandemic of COVID-19 small businesses in South Africa have few options of relief during a time of lockdown and no business activity. SAveabusiness looks to gain the support of civil society and large business to ensure that small businesses make it through this period.
With so much uncertainty and lack of clarity on existing relief options. SAveabusiness is a transparent NPO (Non-Profit Organization) that looks to the public to swiftly and meaningfully take action and give small business a fighting chance during the pandemic.
The total pool of donations for each phase will be evenly distributed to the 10 selected businesses that will rotate on a weekly basis as we receive and validate more nominations from the public.
You have the option to either donate directly to your business of choice. Alternatively you can donate to the SAveabusiness COVID-19 Relief Fund that will evenly distribute the donations to the businesses in that fundraising phase.
SAveabusiness is a platform that works simply and fully transparently in collaboration with citizens to save small South African businesses that have been hardest affected by COVID-19. The raised funds will be purposed to avoid layoffs; non-payment of workers and expenses that would impede continuation when South Africa returns to business as usual.
We believe that this is an essential initiative that will mitigate the rise in unemployment and the further destabilization of our economy. Donations over R1000 can choose to receive a tax exemption certificate as the initiative operates with NGO status.
The public has two options: (1) Donate directly to the listed business of your choice or (2) Donate to the SAveabusiness COVID-19 Relief Fund to be evenly distributed at the end of each phase.
A Nomination form is available to the public to nominate a business of their choice. Small businesses may also apply to qualify for acceptance.
10 qualifying and deserving SME's per phase will be selected. Each fundraising phase will run for 5 days consecutively.
We will be partnering with 8 Ambassadors whom are well-established and prominent small business owners to ensure a successful fundraising initiative.
At the end of each 5 day fundraising phase, the total donation pot for that phase will be evenly distributed to the 10 companies. Raised funds will be shown in real-time.
