THE VICTOR DAITZ FOUNDATION
Founded in 1984, The Victor Daitz Foundation carries out the humanitarian vision of South African philanthropist Victor Daitz, whose wish was to give back to the community the major portion of the wealth he had accumulated in his lifetime. As noted on the foundation’s website, its vision includes a special focus on “the needs of the historically deprived, disadvantaged groups of our society, particularly for education.” The Umkhumbane Schools Project has been the recipient of two major grants from the Daitz Foundation, in support of our maths, science, and university access initiatives.
THE GLOBAL GIVING FOUNDATION
GlobalGiving is an international crowdfunding organization through which the Umkhumbane Schools Project has been raising funds since 2015. Member NGOs are vetted for capacity and financial integrity and, once approved, are provided a platform from which to raise tax-deductible contributions from donors in the USA and UK.
ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING and CLIMATE PROTECTION DEPARTMENT (“EPCPD”), ETHEKWINI MUNICIPALITY
Funding for the Umkhumbane Schools Project’s Biodiversity Skills Group Pilot Program has been provided by the EPCPD of Ethekwini Municipality, as part of the EPCPD’s vision of closing the recognised skills gap in biodiversity-related science knowledge needed to fill sought-after jobs in the 21st century municipal sector.
