At Jaxx Husky we sometimes do fundraising walks for animal welfare beneficiaries. When we plan these events, we take our responsibility as fundraisers very seriously by implementing several safeguards to ensure accountability and transparency.


Our fundraising beneficiaries are always registered non-profit organisations (NPO’s) or non-government organisations (NGOs). In compliance with the South African Fundraising Act of 1978 (click the link to view), we first sign an agreement that authorises us to act on the event beneficiaries behalf.

Bank Account

Fundraising event donations are either paid directly into the beneficiaries bank account or paid into an escrow bank account (where several beneficiaries are involved). When an escrow account is used for donations each beneficiary principle (and/or event steering committee member) becomes a signatory to the account. This ensures that funds cannot be withdrawn without prior approval of all signatories.

Steering Committees

When relevant, a steering committee comprised of nominated event beneficiary representatives and other interested parties is formed. The steering committee provides oversight and assistance on issues such as legal compliance, financial management, route logistics, marketing, and disbursements.

Fundraising Target

Before launching a fundraising event a budget is prepared detailing event cost estimates, which include beneficiary “wish list” items, logistical items (transport, accommodation, F&B, etc), and marketing items (press releases, branding merchandise, etc). These costs are then totalled to determine the fundraising target. As donations towards the event are received, the target is reduced to show funds raised. The value of in-kind sponsorships (if offsetting budgeted items) are manually entered to adjust the target accordingly.


Fundraising campaign accounts are sometimes created on third-party provider sites, such as Back a Buddy. These sites rely on a percentage of donations raised to fund their operations, which can either be deducted from each donation received or paid by the donor. All funds received, and service fees incurred, via these crowdfunding platforms are included in a report compiled at the end of the event.

Event Participation

Some fundraising events may include bookings, whereby donors can book online (via this website) to participate in an event. When applicable, the donor can select either day-walk or multi-day walk options. Participation prices generally include vehicle parking, shuttle transport, meals and refreshments, medical evacuation insurance, and overnight accommodation.

Event Reporting

At the end of each fundraising event a reconciliation statement is prepared by the steering committee detailing the total funds raised, funding sources, event costs, beneficiary disbursements, media and social media reach of the event. The report is published on this website and shared with all sponsors and beneficiaries.
