Our Foundation is non-profit and makes use of generous donations received from corporate donors and governmental organisations, as well as Grootbos Lodge guests and other private individuals. Our funding is well supplemented by income generated by our various projects, such as our on-site nursery and landscaping businesses, and the sale of produce from Siyakhula Organic Farm. All funds are invested through the Foundation into implementing our conservation, sports and development projects.
The Grootbos Foundation is completely responsible for the management and facilitation of all projects in our portfolio. This model harnesses the practical expertise within our organisation and effectively delivers on the objectives of our partners – donors, funders and public bodies. Opportunities around corporate social responsibility and experiential learning can be crafted to ensure that donors derive maximum value; and we strive to employ a Public Private Partnership approach at all times.
The Grootbos Foundation is a registered Section 21, non-profit company (#2003/014519/08) that is audited annually by the international auditing firm KPMG.
We are also registered as Public Benefit Organisation: PBO 930023319.
