Yesterday, the trust launched its campaign “25 Million Reasons To Give” to mark its 25th anniversary celebrations.
The campaign is focused on raising investment towards five key pillars - scholarships, grants, building blocks, conference and awards.
“The trust has spent a lot of time trying to make sure that it is relevant to the sector and to the needs of the sector. What it started out, (it) had to shift with time. The greatest achievement besides all the programmes and events is that we have been an organisation that has stayed on the pulse of what is happening and what is needed on the ground,” chief executive Marcus Desando said.
“We started as a grant-making body then, with time, we started putting programmes together where we have bursaries for schools scholarships and started putting together an awards evening so we can celebrate the people who have done so much for our country. The need to evolve with time has been one of the greatest assets of the trust.”
