How do I deduct for donations made to a NGO?

I make regular donations to a registered NGO - can I deduct this from my personal income tax (under contributions) and what source code should I use?

You can deduct these donations, you would declare this under the "other deductions section" on your income tax return ITR12 under donations. Remember to keep the NGO certificates if SARS asks for them.
