How we fund

The primary benefactor of JB Marks Education Trust Fund is the Mineworkers Investment Trust through dividends from the Mineworkers Investment Company. Over the years, the demand for funding has grown in such a way that thousands of needy applicants are turned down annually as the Trust can only cover 250 students per year.

Workers in the mining, energy and construction industry have a low income wage; therefore, their dreams of paying for their own higher learning education and those of their dependents are unattainable.

For this reason, we invite Corporate South Africa to join us and partner with us so that we can continue to empower more South African students through education, capacity building programms and creating access to job opportunities and in-service training.

Together, we can build a South Africa that we can all be proud of.
