I understand that I can claim deductions for charitable donations to a registered PBO (with a section 18A certificate) up to 10% of my taxable income. I am wondering whether I will receive the full value of my donation back with my tax refund or only a portion of it. I like the idea of donating up to 10% of my taxable income, as I will have a say in where it goes. However, this will be a sizeable portion of my income and can only do this if I'm sure of receiving the income back in my tax refund.

You will not receive the full value back but only the amount times the tax bracket percentage you are in. ie a R10000 donation if you are in the 40% bracket will yield a R4000 refund.
