How to protect yourself from fraudulent organisation donation requests

Jan 5, 2022 | St Lukes

Dear Donors, friends, and acquaintances of St Luke’s Combined Hospices,
With the onset of COVID-19, we have seen a significant increase in the desperation of individuals to “earn” a living. Unfortunately, this has come in the form of people/fraudulent organisations requesting donations on behalf of Non-profit organisations such as ours.

To protect yourselves and our organisation, please insist on a copy of our NPO certificate, be extremely vigilant, and do not hesitate to make contact with us to verify a request for a donation. Please note that these requests may extend beyond asking for financial support and can include requests for furniture, goods, etc.

Confirmations of requests can be forwarded to Zarah Domingo on or Irene Saunders on or the writer.

We thank all donors for their continued support and wish all our donors, friends, and acquaintances a healthy and prosperous 2022.


Kindest regards
Michelle Lehmann-Shantall
HOD: People and Support Services
