​CORPORATE SOCIAL INVESTMENT FUNDING:
Growthpoint Properties supports Corporate Social Investment (CSI) programmes that promote skills development and empowerment, rather than dependency. Acknowledged as being at the forefront of sustainability and as leaders in our field, we aim to impact the lives of the previously disadvantaged and marginalised groups by creating opportunities for them to thrive. We are also focused on supporting education across South Africa because we believe that partnerships with educators will yield positive results towards our common vision of building a better life for all.
OUR EDUCATIONAL INVOLVEMENT IS FOCUSED ON FOUR KEY AREAS:

1. Early childhood development

2. Primary school learning

3. High school learning

4. Youth development

TIPS TO HELP YOU COMPLETE THE FORM:

When thinking about what the funding will be used for and how this make a difference towards the intended beneficiaries, remember that the social impact refers to the change in people's socio-economic position in society (after being assisted). The Theory of Change (TOC) unpacks and explains the logic behind how a programme contributes to a chain of results that produce the programme's ultimate intended impact(s) and empowerment. Our Theory of Change relates to our aim to improve the quality of educational output for our beneficiaries.

The programme must be aligned to the B-BBEE skills development matrix – Category C.

The Skills Learning Matrix is a tool used by the CSR Department to assess how best to position the proposed accredited training programme in line with the B-BBEE codes.
