Kwela 1% Plan
We created our own 1% Plan to help increase funding of causes we care about. We hope you’ll care about them too.
Kwela donates 1% of its revenues—irrespective of profits made—to selected social and environmental causes (the causes we currently support are listed below). Clients direct these funds by letting us know how to split their 1% amongst the charities we’ve chosen to support at this time. It’s another way for us to work together and both get involved in something that strives to help make the world a better place. The current charities we support include (listed alphabetically):
Crisis Centre B.C. www.crisiscentre.bc.ca
The Crisis Intervention and Suicide Prevention Centre of B.C. is a non-profit organization committed to helping people help themselves and others deal with crisis. The Centre is operated by 425+ frontline volunteers and a small team of professional staff who support and empower individuals to see their own strengths and options, 24/7. The Centre works at the community level to provide education and training aimed at fostering resiliency and building capacity to respond to crisis and suicide.
Education Without Borders www.educationwithoutborders.ca
Education Without Borders is a Canadian charity whose mandate is to provide educational opportunities and school facilities in black communities in South Africa.
