Included in the criteria are memberships of associations and organisations not directly linked to our business activities but whose finances are directly dependent on membership fees, i.e. Business Against Crime.
The key areas of our donations
Social investment is governed by a formal policy themed “investing in the future” with emphasis on “our children, their education, their health and their environment”.
Donations are primarily intended to benefit recipients located in areas where our employees live and work.
Organisations that do not act within the legal system or are not run on a non-profit basis will not be considered for donations. Furthermore all political organizations, in South Africa or in the African countries which we operate, are excluded.
As a matter of policy, donations are awarded and monitored by the Afrox Head Office in Selby, Johannesburg. Afrox’s Managing Director chairs a committee that meets quarterly to allocate funds and once a year review new applications for donations.
Afrox donates 1% of the previous year after-tax earnings however this is subject to change without prior notice.
How to apply for donations
Applications submitted in writing to Donations@afrox.linde.com before end June for consideration for the next year. All applications will be reviewed and successful applicants will be contacted before end October. If you have not received a response by end October your application for donation was not successful.
