Knowledge sharing, montioring and evaluation


firstrand foundation knowledge sharing

At the FirstRand Foundation, we believe that corporate social investment (CSI) is a neutral and collaborative space. We understand that in order to positively impact society, corporates and other stakeholders should work together to determine, adopt and spread best practice in social development. With this in mind, we have embarked on a knowledge sharing campaign by making publicly available our programme strategy documents, evaluations and other reports of value. By sharing such documents we hope to spread good practice in CSI and social programming, as well as influencing other corporates to do the same.
