GetOn Enterprise Development Projects are initiated by external partners/companies,
looking to invest into the community. By donating funds or equipment to GetOn Skills Development Centre, our partners facilitate the start-up and development of our beneficiaries, all 100% black owned businesses. In return for practical and regular support, companies can claim BB-BEE points on their BEE score card and start procurement and supplier development.
The GetOn Foundation Trust is a registered Non Profit/ Public Beneficiary Organization and is therefore able to issue Section 18A certificates which allows for tax deductibility of quantifiable contributions by donors towards thier enterprise/supplier development spend.
