Every year the Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse ladies raise money for worthwhile local charities with every step they take.
Following their successful 2019 walk, which raised over R677 677 to buy a bus for Camphill School, the Lighthouse to Lighthouse ladies are striving for new heights in 2020.
In order to select their Charity of Choice for next year’s Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse Walk, the L2L committee is inviting interested NGOs/charities to submit a written proposal for consideration.
L2L encourages all Non-Profit/ Public Benefit organisations situated within the Overstrand municipal district to apply for the funds which will be raised during the 2020 Ladies Walk. Applications open at the beginning of June 2019 and charities are required to compile a one-page summary of a proposed project.
The closing date for applications is 10 June. Keep an eye on the local media, the L2L Ladies Walk Facebook page and their webpage, www.lighthouse2lighthouse.co.za.
After the closing date, the L2L Ladies Walk committee will study each application according to the selection criteria set out in the Lighthouse2Lighthouse Ladies NPO Constitution. Applicants should:
- Provide an NPO certificate, PBO and Section 18A reference number issued by the Commissioner of SARS.
- Propose a viable, realistic project with detailed planning and dates. This project must be completed within the year of receiving the funding. Funding will not be provided for the running costs of the NPO.
- Own the necessary property and have approved building plans if the request for funds is for a building project.
- Show proof of fundraising efforts for this project.
- Indicate a specific target group and size of the group for the proposed project.

Applications must be submitted to the L2L chairlady, Ronel Van Zyl at firstname.lastname@example.org, by no later than 10 June 2019.
