Socio-economic Development

Donors who make monetary and/or non-monetary contributions of up to 1% of their net profit after tax value towards ERP’s work through its ECD centres and programmes and its food security programme that is not accredited and/or not with businesses, may earn all of the available 5 points under the Socio-economic Development pillar.

Skills Development

By contributing up to 6% of its payroll towards ERP’s accredited training programmes, donors may earn up to 12 of the available 20 points under the Skills Development pillar. ERP is thus able to assist donors in meeting more than the 8 minimum points required to meet the 40% sub-minimum of this pillar, which is a priority pillar.

Enterprise and Supplier Development

By making monetary and/or non-monetary contributions of up to 3% of its net profit after tax value towards ERP’s initiatives with small black-owned enterprises under its food security programme, donors may earn all of the available 5 points under the Enterprise Development sub-pillar. Preferential procurement points to be considered.
