How will TOM beneficiaries be selected for TOM 2020?
After the 2020 event, TOMI will invite charitable organisations to apply for up to R50 000 of funding to implement a proposed project aligned to one of TOMI’s pillars of education, environment, health and athletics development.
Details of the application process, as well as the required supporting documentation, will be made available in due course and hosted for download on this website.
Beneficiary applicants will be shortlisted, after which the TOM board will select the final projects that will receive support funding.
For the Two Oceans Marathon 2020, TOMI will make available 500 charity entries for sale, with proceeds of these entries to be distributed by TOMI after the event. This is not to be confused with the entries sold to charities who are then able to sell charity entries at a profit as TOM/TOMI’s 2020 selected charity partners.
In a move to support more charities, runners are now able to donate directly to the Two Oceans Marathon Initiative, as the charitable entity of TOM, and select the impact pillar they would ideally like to see supported. These individual donations can be made on entering the 2020 event.
What will the selection process involve?
We will upload the criteria for selection and outline the process during the first quarter of 2020.
