We are passionate about the game of golf, and we are just as passionate about giving back to the community. Here are a list of charities that Golf In The Garden Route and South Africa supports:
South African Golf Development Board is a non-profit organization that has a network of coaches and officials that help develop the game of golf in the cities and many other remote areas in the country. They operate in 9 regions and have the capacity to coach 2500 children per week in these regions. Without the assistance of various sponsors and donors, the SAGDB would not be able to reach out to children and develop the game of golf. SAGDB has Section 18A Donation Tax Exemption status and we urge other corporates out there to support this wonderful cause! Your donation, no matter how small, will make an incredible difference, not only in the lives of these children, but also in the much needed development of our beloved game of golf!
If you would like to make a donation or sponsor a child or project, please get in touch with Johan on 082 370 7767 / firstname.lastname@example.org or Joseph on 072 462 5714. You can also contact the Summerset West office HERE.
Youth for Christ Knysna is a Christian organization that invest full time in the development of Youth in Knysna and surrounding areas. If you were to spend a day in the shoes of one of their dedicated staff members, you will walk away a changed person. To step in and do everything they do with open arms and loving hearts the way they do it is truly something many of us can learn from. There is no such things as no, we can’t do it – they simply climb in and do what is required in aid of uplifting and supporting another fellow human being.
YFC Knysna is in the process of rebranding to The Youth Hub Knysna for 2 main reasons. 1: Many institutions simply turn down available funds for projects because the word, Christ, is in the name. 2: YFC have a number of skills development projects that drastically changes the lives of so many people – people were taken in from the street with no skills of any nature, no way of getting an income, no confidence, no hope and no knowledge of God. After receiving training, they walked away skilled in a variety of professions such as dress making, carpentry, brick laying, plumbing, computers and host of other professions – so much so that the need for skills training among the youth has increased drastically – this is the second reason for the name change.
The Youth Hub is becoming a place where people can come to find hope, love, knowledge, joy, happiness, skills and get help to find a job out there so they can feed themselves and their families. All of the above developments and movement require funding, and it is an ongoing process.
We urge you in your business or personal capacity to support this non profit organization that is literally going out there touching hundreds of lives with very little financial support. YFC Knysna have Section 18A Tax Exemption status and will issue you with a the relevant documentation for your donations / sponsors towards a project.
Projects under the YFC Knysna banner to consider supporting are:
You can contact Director, Phil Schroder, for a visit to any or all of the above projects, or if you would like more information on how to become part of changing a life!

Carpe Diem School is a relatively young school which was founded on 15 July 2000. Carpe Diem was officially inaugurated on the 6th of August 2000 by the then acting minister of Education, mrs. Helen Zille. Prior to this, there was no school accessible to learners with intellectual-, physical or learning impairments other than the schools of skill which caters for the higher functioning older learners. That left lower functioning learners with no the option but to go to Cape Town from a very young age for accessible education.
The school building, previously known as Kruinsig Childcare School, had to undergo extensive modifications and repairs for the establishment of the wonderful and accessible facility that is Carpe Diem School today.

We have found it to be a deeply rewarding and fulfilling experience when you get to meet the faces and people behind the suffering and hardship out there – so much so that we committed our time to help these organizations on a regular basis with funding, fund raisers and other campaigns so they can continue doing the amazing work they are doing.
Thank you for taking the time read this page. We hope this touched you in a way that will help you take a step toward changing the lives of others that desperately need it.
God bless you!
With much love,
