The St Peter's Social Responsibility projects, namely Teacher Interns, Bursary Funds and Community Partnerships are owned and managed by the school. In terms of their educational expertise and time, the Boys and Girls schools are well-placed to ensure that the projects positively change the lives of the recipients. As with all initiatives there are related costs, however the school does not have the financial resources to make the investment.
All the initiatives are dependent on external funding and this fundraising is the primary role of the St Peter’s Foundation. It is a registered public benefit organisation (PBO: 930-007-561) and operates as a trust fund, managed by an independent board of trustees. The trust has been set up in such a way so as to protect the money donated to us.
All donations to the Foundation entitle donors to a tax certificate and the foundation has BEE-verification. Our initiatives qualify for BEE points as well as CSI allocation under the new codes. 100% of the funds donated to the Foundation go to the projects specified by the donor.
