Social Responsibility

“A fundamental concern for others
in our individual and community lives
would go a long way in making the world
the better place we so passionately dreamt of.”
– Nelson Mandela

We believe in sharing our success and appreciation with the community and our clients. Our vision of “Financial Leadership Through Professional Excellence” goes hand in hand with our corporate social responsibility offerings.

We have made donations to the following charitable organisations on behalf of our clients, as we continue to work with and support those in need:

Corporate Social Investments
Our Ongoing Support

CSI Link

CSI Link have identified a gap in the market for smaller to medium-sized enterprises who have money allocated to Corporate Social Investment (CSI) and need maximum returns with minimum effort. They will ensure that the company’s desired spend is linked to carefully selected NGO’s, reducing admin and hassle for companies whilst ensuring they get maximum B-BBEE points.

The two NGO’s which the 2020 CSI Link donation will go towards are:

  • Soil for Life
  • Life Choices

Please view their flyer attached below and visit their website for more information.

Eid

Wishing all our Muslim staff, clients and colleagues Eid Mubarak. And in the spirit of giving, we have made a donation to The Mustadafin Foundation.

The Mustadafin Foundation was established in 1986 during the Apartheid era. It emerged as a result of political unrest and violence in the Crossroads township. Crossroads, at that time was isolated and violence that erupted was due to faction fighting. It had a devastating effect on the local community, particularly women and children. This material is from The Mustadafin Foundation website, click here to read more.
