 about the firstrand foundation

 

The FirstRand Foundation is the vehicle through which the Group and its businesses direct corporate social investment (CSI). FirstRand believes that corporations have a responsibility – beyond creating jobs and paying taxes – to contribute to the social and economic upliftment of all South Africans.

who we support

 

The Foundation supports 13 unique programmes that focus on education, health, and social development.

apply for funding

 

FirstRand’s programmatic approach to grant making means larger multiyear grants to fewer partners who work in specific development sectors. This leads to a more structured and meaningful engagement with our programme partners.

Monitoring and evaluation forms an essential part of grant making. Each programme partner is required to submit targets for all indicators at the beginning of each grant year.
