Applications have now opened for charitable organisations that would like to become the beneficiaries of the 2021 Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse Ladies Walk funding. Every year, the Lighthouse 2 Lighthouse Ladies (NPO) hosts the special L2L Ladies Walk to raise money for a worthy local charity. Following their successful 2020 walk, which raised over R800 000 for The Butterfly Centre in Stanford, the L2L ladies are striving for new heights in 2021.
Any Non-Profit/ Public Benefit organisation within the Overstrand municipal district is welcome to apply by compiling a one-page summary of a proposed project for 2021 (funding will not be provided for running costs). The proposal must include the name of the organisation; the NPO and PBO number; and the project proposal. The project must be realistic and viable, and has to be completed within the year following the handover of the funds.
The organisation must be in possession of the property/land and approved building plans must be available. The application also has to indicate the organisation’s target group (and the size of the target group) and the community that will benefit from this project.
The closing date for proposals is 31 July 2020. After the closing date, the L2L Ladies committee will determine a shortlist and request further documentation, including an up-to-date financial statement and SARS Tax Clearance Certificate for previous years’ financial statements. Applicants will also have to specify the sustainability of the project and the charity as a whole.
Applications must be submitted to the L2L chairlady, Ronelle van Zyl at firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than 31 July.
