The MaD CA Foundation
PDF Print E-mail

The MaD CA Foundation is in the process of being incorporated. Deloitte & Touché has generously sponsored its services in setting up the Association Incorporated under Section 21 of the Companies Act which will benefit a wide spectrum of charities in the long-term.

The object of the Foundation is to select certain charities to benefit from the various expeditions. The Foundation will not be limited to supporting only one particular charity and it is our hope that sponsorship will cover the administration costs so that every rand raised for charity goes to the intended beneficiaries.

Board of Directors

High-profile business executives have been approached to participate as Directors.


Beneficiaries

The goal is to raise R30 million for charity from the South Pole Expedition. The beneficiaries of these funds will be:

  • The SA Council for the Aged (Age-In-Action)

The aged tend to be forgotten in society and these funds will be used to buy food, equipment and medical supplies for the aged as well as being used in initiatives to improve upon the living conditions of the aged.

  • National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

The NSPCA receives very little funding for the great work that it does. These funds will be used to buy animal food, equipment, medical supplies and to build new kennels.

  • The Rivers Foundation

Rivers Church in Sandton have a Foundation which amongst many other initiatives provides financial support to Acres of Love (who care for orphaned and abandoned children); provides shelter, clothing and education for street children; and supports the Ethembeni Children’s Home which cares for abandoned and HIV/AIDS babies.

All charitable donations will be held in Trust and funding will be distributed to the respective charities only upon presentation to the directors of an application for funding against clearly defined expenditure requirements.

Lloyd Scott Hudson will be involved in overseeing that the donations raised are spent appropriately and that the funds will be used for the benefit of the intended beneficiaries. No monetary funds will be handed over to the charities.
