The Murray & Roberts Child Welfare Fund was very fortunate to be able to host the 2021 fundraising golf day before the third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic arrived in Gauteng.

Thanks to our donors and sponsors, the fund was able to raise much-needed resources to support the organisations that reach out to us for assistance.

Over the past 12 months (July 2020 – June 2021), the fund raised R306 000 and assisted 11 organisations. This was possible due to our employees who donate through payroll giving, funds raised through the golf day and the Murray & Roberts Letsema Sizwe Fund, which matches the funds raised during the year.

Good governance is important to the fund. Every application is reviewed by the committee which ensures that the organisation is properly registered with a strong track record of community involvement and good governance structures. The committee regularly follows up with beneficiaries to ensure the funds have been used for their intended function and where possible, the committee hosts an annual site visit to the organisations.

Says Ed Jardim, Murray & Roberts Child Welfare Fund chairman, “We are immensely grateful to our employees, clients, suppliers and partners who make it possible for the Child Welfare Fund to continue with its work.”
