Pathways to becoming a CA

CA Benevolent Foundation
Established in response to the challenging circumstances facing members of the accounting profession, their families and the wider community


•    The CA Benevolent Foundation is one of the ways we give back to our communities.
•    The Foundation operates the Scholarship Fund and the Necessitous Circumstances Fund.
•    Donations are tax deductible.

Give back

Our Chartered Accountants Benevolent Foundation operates two distinct funds that seek to make a difference to people in need in our communities.
•    The Scholarship Fund offers scholarships for tertiary education or the Chartered Accountants Program. Marginalised and disadvantaged Africans and world citizens who can demonstrate an interest in accounting, and who are in financial need can apply.
•    The Necessitous Circumstances Fund offers financial assistance to individuals. Marginalised and disadvantaged Africans and world citizens in financial need can apply. Funds are given to them personally or through a charity partner.
Seed funding for the Chartered Accountants Benevolent Foundation came from the then member bequests. The Foundation has deductible gift recipient status and donations are tax deductible.
Suggestions for potential recipients for assistance by the Foundation are also welcomed.
