thinking beyond

Philanthropy fuels our progress at the Central University of Technology, Free State (CUT).

We aim to increase scholarships and bursaries, grow our campus, and provide projects and programmes that benefit our students and our community.

Giving to CUT is an excellent way to invest in the  University’s social commitment.

Tax benefits

CUT is a public benefit organisation and so any bona fide donations and/or grants made to CUT are tax-deductible. Upon confirmation of your donation, we will gladly issue a Section 18a Tax concession certificate. Or, should you wish to donate more than once, we can issue a tax certificate at the end of the tax year. Corporate donors receive BEE Scorecard Points for their gifts.

Gifts and grants are tax-deductible in South Africa, UK, the US and Canada.

Why give to CUT

Your gift, whatever its size, makes a difference in assuring the CUT experience will be available to new generations of students.

Gifts like yours sustain the university and bolster the value of a CUT degree. They are investments in the future of the university and the students and staff who will shape the future of South Africa.
