Clicking "Donate" will redirect you to PayPal where you can make a donation using your credit card and / or PayPal account.
Depending on your country of residence you might not need a PayPal account and could donate using only your credit card.
Please consider making a recurring donation by selecting the option "Make this a monthly donation" after being redirected to PayPal. You may need to have a PayPal account to enable recurring donations.
Alternatively, you can also donate using your credit card through local South African payment processor YOCO by clicking on the YOCO icon below.
We also accept donations in BITCOIN. To learn more about Bitcoin, go here.
Click the image below to make an on-chain Bitcoin donation using Blockonomics.
Blockonomics is a straight-to-wallet payment processor. They do not custody Bitcoin on our behalf. On-chain payments are more expensive, but offer more finality and security, better suited for larger amounts.
For smaller amounts and lower transaction fees you can donate Bitcoin via the Lightning Network.
You'll see a lightning invoice code starting with 'lnbc'. Below that, click 'AMOUNT'. Select your preferred currency, enter the amount you'd like to donate and click 'DONE'. You will see the 'lnbc' code change. Open your lightning wallet. You can copy paste the 'lnbc' code into your wallet or click 'SHOW QR' to scan the QR code from your wallet.
EFT Donations. You can also donate by making a deposit into the following bank account:
Since the closure of our volunteer program (and the necessary shift away from a volunteer based funding model to a donation based funding model) we introduced the idea of "sponsoring a child".
How it works is simple:
The cost of running our Core Surf Program comes to R500 (approx 30 USD / 27 EURO) per child, per month. By donating at least R500 per month, sponsors enable the ongoing participation of at least one child in our Core Surf Program.
In return for their ongoing support, our Sponsor-a-Child supporters receive a specially curated newsletter every three to four weeks, written by the coaches with a focus on the individual children, their perspectives, their challenges, and their progress within our program and beyond it.
Supporters who donate materials or supplies of an equivalent value, on a monthly basis, will also be added to the mailing list.
PayPal makes it very easy to set up a monthly recurring donation and qualify for our Sponsor-a-Child newsletter. Simply click "donate" below, enter an amount equal to $30 dollars or more, and select the option "make this a recurring payment". When making the payment be sure to provide us with your first name, last name and the email address where you would like to receive the newsletter.
