Focus on the Milpark Foundation

The Milpark Foundation is a registered Public Benefit Organisation (PBO), and is the community engagement vehicle for Milpark Business School. As a PBO, the Foundation is registered in terms of Section 18A of the Income Tax Act making donations to the Foundation tax-deductible.

What does the Foundation do?
The Foundation aims to develop our communities by contributing to the lives of selected disadvantaged individuals. Through whole or partial bursaries for study, young South Africans are given the opportunity to obtain a qualification and thus to seek employment. In this way, we aim to transform not only the individual student's life, but also the lives of their families and communities. In this way, Milpark Foundation contributes to the transformation of our students, our society and our economy.

Since 2007, the Foundation has also provided 2 744 successful graduates from the Letsema and Kuyasa learnerships (in association with the BANKSETA) with laptops. As these graduates are also FAIS compliant, they can use their workplace technology effectively or create entrepreneurial opportunities for themselves.

Who benefits from the Foundation's activities?

All the beneficiaries of the Milpark Foundation are drawn from previously disadvantaged communities. We focus our attention on deserving, disadvantaged individuals with the commitment and motivation needed to become skilled contributors in the workplace. By funding their studies through bursaries, the Foundation ensures that these students have the skills needed to enable the current need for transformation in South Africa.

What is the relationship with the Milpark Business School?
