Our purpose is to make a meaningful, tangible difference to communities, and in so doing fulfil our purpose of effecting positive change in South Africa. A secondary purpose is to provide Futuregrowth employees with a platform to “live” our brand and further enrich their own lives by doing good for others.
Futuregrowth allocates 1% of its after tax profits to CSI. An internal Corporate Social Investment Committee vets the projects under review. Committee members are invited to serve on the committee based on their passion for, and interest in, social development work in and among socio-economically deprived communities. All staff are encouraged to participate in our CSI projects.
Our geographical focus includes areas that committee members are able to visit personally, so that they can conduct a thorough due diligence process on proposed projects, and monitor those approved on an ongoing basis. The proximity of a project to our offices also makes it more feasible for our broader staff complement to be actively involved. We will, however, consider projects across the country in collaboration with partner organisations who are able to do the due diligence on our behalf.
