How We Make a Difference

Different.org is an online crowdfunding philanthropy platform funding projects in South Africa. With running costs being funded by the Different Group, 100% of donations go to the NGO. No monthly subscriptions. No commission on donations. No credit card fees. This ensures that every cent goes to the cause you love, to maximise impact.

Additionally, we provide sustainable funding through the first, and every anniversary payment made by Different Life customers which go to projects or causes on Different.org.

As a way of ensuring that our internal controls and business processes are in line with our dream and promise of creating a platform that will change South Africa, we will be subjected to an annual review by external auditors. This will focus, especially, on ensuring that donations received are actually passed on to the designated projects as well as assessing the adequacy of the Different.org project selection processes.

Different Life

Different Life is the backbone which enables us to do what we love, which helps in achieving our dreams for South Africa. By taking a Life Insurance policy through Different Life, you are able to allocate your first payment of every year as a donation to a cause of your choice on Different.org. Additionally, the companies within the Different Group donate a minimum of 10% pre-tax profits to the Different Foundation. This guarantees that all donations received from you go towards helping the causes that you are passionate about!

By referring friends who purchase a life insurance policy through Different Life, we will reward you with an additional monthly payment to donate to a cause close to your heart on Different.org. Together, we can impact the lives of many South Africans, leading towards a better future.
