How do I form a Non Profit Organisation?

Actually, you don't. A Non-Profit Organisation is an organisation that has been registered with the Department of Social Development as an NPO. It can take various forms from an NGO, a trust, or a Not for Profit Company (NPC). In all cases the Department requires that there shall be at least three unrelated members of the Governing Body. Also, it must have an altruistic motive.

Also, your organisation can be registered with SARS as an Exempt (from tax) Institution and a Public Benefit Organisation. If anyone or company then makes a donation to your organisation, they can deduct the donation from their taxable income.

Each case needs to be governed by a constitution appropriate to its form....
