Survé Philanthropies is the philanthropic initiative of Dr Survé and the Survé family. Dr Survé has created an endowment whereby 90% of the value of his investments in the Sekunjalo Group, including its profits and dividends, are provided for the benefit of numerous Survé philanthropic foundations.
Our foundations include the following:
Iqbal Survé Bursary Trust
The bursary, initiated by Dr Iqbal Survé provides learners with the opportunity to further their studies at universities, technikons and specialised academies. Many of these young South African men and women aspire to become qualified professionals within various sectors and are afforded this opportunity through the trust. The bursary is directed at the poorest students who, without the support of the bursary, would lack the funds and resources to fulfil their dreams.
The Survé Family Foundation
The Survé Family Foundation was established by the founder and Chairman of the Sekunjalo Group, Iqbal Survé, in 2004, with an endowment of 50 million US Dollars. The foundation’s focus is on Africa; in areas of children and women’s rights, and those largely affected by the trafficking of young children and teenagers. The foundation has partnered with global civil society organisations to prevent this infringement of children’s rights
