Welcome to 31 Club Charity Organization
The 31 Club is a registered non-profit fund raising organization which was formed in 1962 by a group of women under the chairmanship of Norma Rattray. As the group consisted of 31 volunteers, the Club was named accordingly, and membership remains at a maximum of 31 members, who work on a voluntary basis.
The principal aim of the Club is to raise funds for charities in Kwa-Zulu Natal. The 31 Club is a very successful organization with approximately 98% of funds raised being distributed to carefully selected and monitored charities, which the club has done for over 54 years.
The most important aspect of our charity organisation is that NO CASH is handed to any charities; rather we establish what each charity requires and then purchase/source the items, deliver them and check on the charities on an ongoing basis.
The way we raise funds is to hold various high end functions during the course of the year. Take a look at our Functions Gallery to see what we did in 2016. Almost all the catering and décor for all our fund raising functions is done by the members of the Club, with different themes each time. Great attention is given to detail and presentation, making our functions well worth attending.
Last financial year the 31 Club raised over R600,000.00 for charities.
31 Club is a MySchool Beneficiary.
We would love it if you would sign up for a MySchool card or add 31 Club to your existing card!
2016 fund allocations
Our focus in 2016 was Skills Development with 30% of funds raised going to this worthy cause. It has been heartwarming to attend the various Graduation Ceremonies where we have invested funds in our Community. Take a look at some of the pictures from Hillcrest Aids Centre Trust and Highway Hospice. The pride shown by those who successfully completed these courses was clear in their faces.
We spread the balance of funds raised across various sectors – animals, the aged, children, handicapped, education – all equally important. Take a look through our Gallery.donate now
