For Donors

The Learning Trust is creating a community of donors interested in collaborating to support local, effective and sustained educational interventions that target South Africa’s children growing up in conditions of poverty and exclusion.

The Learning Trust is the ideal partner for other funders who will gain the following from a partnership with The Learning Trust:

• Exposure to a network of strong, vetted grantees, often still below the radar of other funders: A key differentiator of The Learning Trust is our motivation to find
  small, community-based education focused projects that have strong, effective local impact and are led by inspirational leadership.
• Deep level of bespoke, in-house capacity support for all selected grantees.
• A relationship based philosophy of 'walking the path' with grantees in building strong partnerships.
• Constructive and meaningful learning and evaluation of grantees.
• A development model that aims to build the capacity of grantees over 5 years.
• A grantee selection and assessment approach which includes an emphasis on financial due diligence.
• New innovative ongoing partnership opportunities.
