Allocation of grants is at the discretion of the Board of Trustees. The decision with regard to all applicants for funding is final and no further correspondence will be entered into.
The Foundation prefers to fund project-specific or programme work. Grants are awarded to nascent organisations or projects within established organisations whose work fits well with the aims of the Foundation but who may not be long established or have a track record.
Due to the Foundation’s capacity constraints, it does not usually make grants of less than R500 000. Intermediaries are used to help channel resources to smaller recipients, helping to provide the Foundation with a wider geographical and often rural footprint.
