Funding in South Africa for Disadvantaged and Marginalized Groups
Growthpoint Properties is seeking applications for its funding program to impact the lives of the previously disadvantaged and marginalised groups by creating opportunities for them to thrive.
Growthpoint Properties supports Corporate Social Investment (CSI) programmes that promote skills development and empowerment, rather than dependency.
They are also focused on supporting education across South Africa because they believe that partnerships with educators will yield positive results towards their common vision of building a better life for all.
Executive management can approve ad-hoc requests for donations of up to R100 000. Requests above R100 000, go to the Social, Ethics and Transformation Committee for approval, which meets once a quarter.
