Founded in 1998, Tshikululu Social Investments has a philosophy of supporting organisations that show passion and determination. Tshikululu manages grantmaking funds and trusts for large and medium-sized businesses. Years of practical knowledge are combined with considered strategic thinking and sound governance to create flexible, well-managed, all-in-one grantmaking portfolios.
Their work is multi-faceted and tailored to the character of each client’s fund, and carried out by specialised teams in the sectors of health, education, social development, and enterprise development.
As a result, they have been entrusted with the allocation of developmentally informed investments in excess of R2 billion in the last decade, supporting more than 15 000 projects and hundreds of South Africa’s champions of change.
Areas of Expertise
South Africa’s development needs are many and varied, cutting across a range of communities, and influenced by historical, social and economic factors. To address the often complex challenges in the field in a meaningful way, Tshikululu has adopted an approach to the business that is centred on the three sector teams.
These operate in the sectors of education, health and HIV/Aids and social development.
Sector specialists with extensive developmental experience in their relevant areas use their understanding of local realities to look for real value in each grant they manage.
