The Old Mutual Foundation: Partnering with community Based Organizations that make a difference

About the Opportunity

The Old Mutual Foundation was established in 1999 and we value working in partnership with registered non-profit organizations. Old Mutual we're committed to creating the kind of change that has a positive, sustainable impact across South Africa. The aim of the Foundation is to empower people and communities through skills development, education, socio-economic transformation and job creation.

Focus Areas:

In response to national imperatives and Old Mutual’s strategic objectives, the focus areas of the Old Mutual Foundation are the following:

• Skills Capacity Building – accredited skills training that will ensure permanent job placement in the economy

• Vulnerable Members of Community – support to relieve the distress of vulnerable communities Our focus is on assisting under-resourced communities in rural and peri-urban areas.


• Non-profit organizations or schools registered with the Department of Social Welfare and that have an active bank account in their name.


• An organization can only be funded once in a 12 month period

• We prefer to fund “hard resources” that will be with the organization in years to come, but may consider “soft” resources under special request

Examples of what Old Mutual would consider funding are: accredited skills training with a trades and artisans focus; educational books and toys for early learning centers; people with disabilities; elderly, etc.

Examples of what Old Mutual would NOT fund are: Individuals or groups of individuals, tours, bursaries; the organisation’s running costs (salaries, rent, admin requirements, etc); fundraisers, gala or charity events, seminars, conferences; construction/ renovation of buildings, transport, vehicles, and items for individuals such as food, clothing, etc.
