Sanlam is serious about helping South Africans become financially secure and independent, and to create their own wealth. This is evident in our R543 million corporate social investment over the last 10 years in the education sector, enterprise and supplier development initiatives, and financial literacy and employee volunteerism.

We provide:

  • Financial education for students at tertiary institutions through Sanlam for Graduates.
  • Financial literacy programmes to unions and workplaces that have influenced the attitudes and financial futures of more than 50 000 low-income earning South Africans.
  • Numeracy initiatives at primary and secondary schools.
  • Micro-enterprise development for students, community members, and SMMEs servicing the school environment.

We also sponsor:

  • Maths, science and literacy-focused support for primary and high school learners. In 2018, more than 328 000 learners benefitted through our Blue Ladder School and Words Open Worlds initiatives.
  • The Kay Motsepe Cup for high school soccer teams. In 2018, 2 500 schools entered from across the country.
  • The postgraduate studies of black students at the African Institute of Financial Markets and Risk Management at UCT.
  • The Thuthuka Bursary Fund, offered to black and coloured students who want to become chartered accountants, or enter the financial services industry.
  • The collaboration efforts within the financial services sector through our partnership with ASISA.
  • The efforts of WWF to combat water scarcity and climate change.
  • Visual arts programmes linked to the exhibitions of the Sanlam Art Collection.

In addition, Sanlam has supported the JB Marks Foundation Trust Fund since 2019, which provides tertiary education to children of workers in the mining, energy and construction sectors. So far, we’ve helped 31 students graduate with bachelor’s degrees and national diplomas.

Our commitment to financial resilience, inclusion and wealth creation in underserved communities remains our core focus, and we will continue to invest in programmes that support the eradication of poverty across Africa.
