Our bank details:

The Mitchells Plain Bursary and role model trust is a South African registered Public Benefit Organisation (PBO) in terms of both section 30 and 18A of the Income Tax Act. A PBO which is recognised under section 18A is entitled to issue receipts to South African donors under section 18A(2). Armed with those receipts, the donors can treat their donations to the PBO as tax-deductible expenses (thereby effectively only paying sixty (60) percent of the face value of the donation).

What we do

Education is a societal issue, and nothing can secure our future better than equipping our young people with quality education and skills. The Mitchell’s Plain Bursary and Role Model Trust gives funding to students who should go on to further and tertiary education, but have difficulty in doing so because of finances. 

We assist students with registration and/or tuition fees for studies at higher education institutions and Further Education and Training colleges. All of our funds are raised from individuals, corporations and companies of all sizes, and private institutions, as well as an annual Golf Day. Not a cent of Government money has been used.

As Founding Trustee Trevor Manuel says: “Without community mobilisation in support of education, there will be little prospect of placing education at the centre of our collective efforts to confront the scourges of poverty, inequality and the hold which drugs and gangsterism have over the lives of so many.”
