Corporate Social Investment | Retail Capital

Investing in the community.

Because the business owners of the future are the community’s children today.

We’re proud to support initiatives that uplift South African communities. Our main focus is to empower disadvantaged children who face multiple challenges on a daily basis.

Their empowerment is the best return on our corporate social investment.

We’re proud to sponsor these organisations:

The JAG Foundation
Sporting Chance
Amoyo Foundation
Darling Outreach Foundation

What do they have in common?

They impact children’s ability to learn, grow and become the best version of themselves. These foundations use sport, dance and drama as a catalyst to build confidence, discipline, and accountability while keeping children out of harm’s way and teaching them that anything is possible through commitment.

We do this through:

Driving education &
promoting literacy

Developing & protecting
vulnerable youth

Creating long-term
sustainable community projects

What we offer

We’re not averse to stepping in when our communities are in crisis. In the COVID-19 pandemic, we provided masks to schools and supported communities and schools with meals. After the July 2021 KZN riots, we provided food hampers. During the floods in April 2022, we provided drinking water.

In short? We aim to be a ray of hope wherever and whenever it’s needed. It’s more than good business sense: it’s at the core of what we stand for as Retail Capital. 

Our other initiatives in a nutshell

Building libraries or enhancing existing libraries to ensure the calibre of literature is up to date with current school curriculum
