Putting Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

FirstRand Supports Education

It is not well known that FirstRand has two of the largest foundations in the country, the FirstRand Foundation established in 1998 and the FirstRand Empowerment Foundation, which was created out of the group’s BEE deal. Last year alone, these foundations granted nearly half a billion rand to initiatives in the education space.

The group is very committed to using its resources to help those much less fortunate than ourselves particularly with regard to education, which is key to the upliftment and growth of our society, and I wanted to share with you some of the work the foundations have been doing.
