Ways to support Oasis
Members of the public who support our recycling projects, bakeries and shops are the lifeblood of our sustainability. Monetary donations come from individuals, small and large businesses, funders, trust funds and foundations, while many in the corporate world assist us with donated or discounted services and products.
We are deeply grateful to you all.

4. Donate used goods or books
Our charity shops and bookshops are a vital source of funding. We sell anything from furniture, art household goods, quality used clothing, bric-a-brac, toys, and books. We welcome donations of any of these items that are in a sellable condition.
Please drop off at Oasis recycling (corner Imam Haron and Lee Road Claremont).
Opening hours: Mondays – Fridays 8:30 to 3:30 and Saturdays 9:00 to 1:00.
5. Collect the small change
A collection tin at your place of work or club premises can add up to make a big difference to those in need. Please drop off your collection at Oasis Association on the corner of Imam Haron and Lee Road Claremont.
6. Make a bequest
Consider leaving a gift to Oasis in your will. Contact us for more information.
7. Support our campaigns
Each year from October to December we run our Food parcel appeal where we aim to gift our beneficiaries with the gift of food, nourishment, and care. One parcel costs approximately R600, and the aim, with your help, is to fill as many parcels as possible between now and Christmas closure. You don’t need to contribute an entire parcel, any amount or item is greatly appreciated.

9. Moving house?
Scaling down? Emigrating? Moving on?
Our collection service will gladly collect any larger item of furniture in good repair, free of charge, including awkward pieces of furniture or garden items. For smaller items, please drop off your pre-loved, unwanted goods at Oasis in Claremont, on the corner of Lee and Imam Haron road.
Decluttering is the new shopping!
Donating items that you no longer want, or need is a win-win for all! For you, it means being able to declutter and get more organised, especially before a potential house move. It is also intrinsically rewarding. For us, it assists in sustaining our meaningful initiatives and allows us to grow to further support people with intellectual disabilities.

10. Become a corporate sponsor
While we strive to be as self-sustaining as possible, with a high percentage of our annual income raised through our income generating projects, we are extremely grateful for the support and partnerships that assist us in expanding our impact and reach. It enables us to continue doing what we do (and love!)
There are various ways a company can work with us:
- Contract us to collect your recycling
- Contract our Outsourced Business Services to assist with business requirements for example packaging, labelling, assembling etc.
- Order delicious baked goods and sandwiches from our bakery for your meetings and events
- Sponsor individual beneficiaries to support their wellbeing
- Sponsor the residential costs for ten residents per year
- Sponsor a vehicle, or the running costs thereof I would like to think this through
For more information please email us firstname.lastname@example.org
We are proud to be associated with some of the most established and largest brands and companies in South Africa. We are also associated with numerous smaller companies. These organisations recognise the crucial work we do in making the lives of the intellectually disabled happier, healthier, and more fulfilling.
