What is the ‘Impact Exchange Program™’?

The Impact Exchange Program is an innovative solution that turbocharges your advertising spend with Green Media by 24 times its value!
By utilising your surplus products to buy media, the program secures you available space from Green Media’s inventory be it TV, Radio, Billboards or Online advertising. 
These unsold products are then donated to charity on your behalf, enabling you to benefit from a Section 18A tax deduction that we secure for you.
This unique approach not only maximises your advertising reach but also supports charitable causes, effectively transforming your excess inventory into a significant marketing and social impact tool.

*Donated product values are at retail prices, with tax savings estimated on cost of sales being 50% of wholesale price/ 25% of retail. Results may vary. Tax savings are subject to Section 18A regulations. The maximum tax deduction is limited to 10% of taxable income.  Clients are responsible for ensuring compliance with these parameters.  The Impact Exchange Program  is subject to media available in Green Media’s inventory. Green Media arranges logistics; however, direct delivery to charities is your responsibility. Additional fees may apply based on the media selected . Discounts are for single transactions only. Return on Cost (ROC) is calculated by taking the tax savings from the investment and comparing it to the total cost, to quantify the effective return. For custom options, contact your Account Manager.

Q: How does the ‘Impact Exchange Program’™ boost my marketing budget?
A: The Impact Exchange Program™ boosts your marketing budget by allowing you to leverage surplus stock to secure advertising space. Instead of having unused inventory, you convert these assets into marketing opportunities. This process effectively stretches your marketing budget because you’re using goods that otherwise sit idle to gain advertising exposure, driving brand awareness and increasing sales without the need for additional cash outlay.

Q: What do you do with the products in the ‘Impact Exchange Program’™?
A: Your excess products are traded for advertising space from Green Media’s inventory.  These products are then donated to local charities, creating a positive community impact.

Q: Can you use an example to explain the financial tax outcome of a deal in the ‘Impact Exchange Program’™?
A: Consider a deal where goods worth R1 million retail, but costing R500,000, are donated to charity. This donation, accounted for as an expense, reduces your taxable income by R500,000. As a result, you save R135,000 in taxes (27% corporate tax rate)

Q: Can I choose whatever advertising I want?
A: In our ‘Impact Exchange Program’™, the advertising choices are based on our current inventory. We have a diverse range of options, but availability is subject to what we currently hold. If you’re interested in advertising outside our inventory, this would require arrangements with respective providers at their standard payment rate using traditional payment methods.  The ‘Impact Exchange Program’™ is designed to offer you effective advertising solutions within the scope of our offering.

Q: Is there a cap on how much I can donate and deduct for tax purposes?
A: Yes, the ‘Impact Exchange Program’™ adheres to SARS regulations under Section 18A, which currently cap the deductible amount for charitable contributions at 10% of your taxable income. Strategically planning your donations within this limit with Green Media is crucial to maximise tax savings.

We’ve amplified clients marketing budgets by R110 million over the last decade.

R11m in goods have been donated to charity through Green Media since 2020
