Wheel Well has various projects and initiatives each requiring an amount of CSI spend. You can either contribute directly to the “Car Seats for Kids Campaign” or contact us via email regarding your spend.
We will reply with asking simple questions such as your CSI spend / budget, your area, spelling out the projects and initiatives we do and suggest a project for your area. These factors are all negotiated including marketing and public relations, depending on the CSI budget spend.
18A receipts and BEE points:
We realise that our donors deserve recognition for their involvement in the transformations we perform.
We reward all donations over R500 with a section 18A donation receipt and BEE letter of thanks making the donations Tax deductible and allows the donor to claim full BEE points under the SED category.
Your donation is used exclusively by the Wheel Well on our projects which directly benefit the previously disadvantaged, earning you full BEE points for Socio-Economic Development.
