The Players’ Fund is registered non-profit (003-140) and public benefit (930012744) organisation. To honour the position of being recognised as the official charity of SA Rugby an annual grant is bestowed to the Fund. The rest of the annual budget is funded entirely by voluntary donations and fundraising activities.

As players continue to sustain serious and life-altering injuries, it is vital that we continue to strive for sustainability and necessary growth. We are looking to increase our activity and grant-giving so that we can help as many people as possible. But we can’t do it alone – we need your help.

Ride 4 Rugby's Caring Hands

If you are an avid cyclist or looking for motivation to get on a bike – we’d like to encourage you to consider choosing Rugby’s Caring Hands as your charity of choice, to partner you on your training journey while working towards your event of choice.

You’ll get to ride in our custom-made cycling jersey and wherever possible, we’ll make your pledge of R5000 well worth the effort. This might even mean having a former Springbok accompany you on a training ride, or getting your name on the hospitality suites at the finish line! We will hold your hand through the online crowdfunding process and boost your story through all our social media platforms. We will also share with you, the stories of the recipients of the Fund, whose lives you’ll be making just a little bit easier through your campaign.

What better reason to get on your bike?

Contact events@playersfund.org.za to get these wheels rolling.

Leave a gift in your will

If you care about our cause and are considering investing this can also be done through a bequest in your will – exempting it from estate duty.

You will need to decide what type of gift you would like to leave and secondly ensure that you use the correct wording when drawing up or updating a will.

Or you may decide to update your will using a codicil. Below are the different types that you can download depending on your preference:

Residuary Legacy – a gift of the remainder of your estate, or a percentage, this is after all other legacies have been made and debts have been cleared.

Monetary Legacy – You can also choose to leave a specific sum of money, also known as a pecuniary gift, which you can arrange to be increased in line with inflation.

Asset Legacy – This is the gift of something valuable like a property, a piece of jewelry or stocks and shares.

*We recommend you consult an attorney when drawing up a new will or updating your current one.

Thank you to all our sponsors & partner organisations!
