Where will my donation go?
Running a Foundation is extremely expensive. When FARR is fortunate enough to win a grant or get some form of public, social or corporate funding, all of this funding is expected to go directly into the research or prevention projects that we run. Unfortunately, there are many other costs for us to carry such as administration, financial audits, upkeep of our buildings and motor vehicles, and many other day to day costs that all add up. The cost to examine and diagnose an infant or child with FASD alone amounts to approximately R2500 per child.
Should you choose to donate to FARR, not only will your money help with our research, diagnosis and prevention, but it will also aid in our day-to-day running costs. It is important for us to ensure that the communities in which we work have ongoing care, even when we are not there. Your donations will also aid in the purchase of items such as Occupational Therapy tools, educational books and toys for the children to read and play with, feeding schemes, school uniforms, Healthy Mother Health Baby Programme © etc.
As an NGO, we do understand all too well the financial pressures of our times. Not everyone can donate financially. Some of the areas we work in have communities that suffer from extreme poverty so any and all help is appreciated. If you have any relevant items in your home or business that you can donate to FARR, we would be extremely grateful.
Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to collect donated items. All items can be dropped off at the FARR Head Office in Unit 5 Amber Place, 42 Bloemhof Street, Bellville, Cape Town or at our other project sites. We do ask that you contact us prior to delivering any items.
- FARR Wishlist :FARR has a Wishlist of items that are urgently needed. Please refer to the PDF to your right for the currently urgently needed items.
- Time and Skills Donation:The FARR team works extremely hard to ensure that our mission statement and objectives are met. This means that we employ people relevant to the work we do. We try to keep our people costs down – which means that some aspects of running a Foundation are subject to resource capacity. We are looking for people to volunteer their time and skills to help FARR be an even better NGO. If you are interested in volunteering your time and skills to FARR, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. Link to email@example.com needs to be added
- Learners/Student Community WorkFARR has embarked on a new and exciting venture to give learners/students an opportunity to volunteer at our organisation. As an organisation, we are aware that all learners require volunteer work as a pre-requisite to enter tertiary institutions and that students need work experience on their CVs. Come and join us! Your individual efforts to assist us will add value to the work that we are presently offering our communities that are at risk and we know you will be enriched by the experience. Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
