Donations and Sponsorships

Communities are at the core of our business. We are therefore committed to supporting the communities where we trade through the way we do business and our #ActForChange corporate social investment initiatives (which focus on fighting hunger) and supporting communities through donations and sponsorships.

Due to the high number of funding requests that we receive, please familiarise yourself with our guidelines and exclusions prior to submitting your application.

Understand our process

All requests must be submitted via the form on our website. All proposals that meet our guidelines and further our strategic goals and objectives will be considered for funding. Due to the high volume of requests received, we are unable to take telephonic requests, or requests that are faxed or mailed. We are also unable to confirm the status of requests or receipt of requests telephonically.

Submitting a request does not guarantee funding; even though we would love to, we are not able to respond positively to all aligned requests for funding.

Requests must be submitted at least 6 – 8 weeks prior to the event to be considered. All received requests will be reviewed and considered and we will revert back to you within one month should your application be successful.

All approved requests will require confirmation on an official letterhead of the represented organisation.

Organisations are assisted once per year.

Take note of our exclusions

We wish we could support all the worthy projects that submit requests for assistance, however, there are several types of requests that we are unable to accommodate. They include:

  • Requests made solely to benefit one person or family (click here for more information on our Bursary programme)

  • Advertising, film or video projects

  • Contests and pageants

  • Research projects and / or study tours

  • Conferences and exhibitions

  • Political and religious organisations as direct beneficiaries

  • Family or individual emergency relief (note: the Group supports disaster relief and humanitarian aid agencies)

  • Organisations or programs that do not benefit the communities within which the Shoprite Group operates

  • Funding required for operational costs and salaries
