U.S.-Related Corporate Trusts in South Africa: An Introduction and a Guide. South African Information Exchange Working Paper #5.
Micou, Ann McKinstry
U.S.-related corporate trusts that are currently funding (or planning to fund) projects to promote change in South Africa are reviewed to guide support-seeking organizations in South Africa to appropriate sources of funds and to encourage donors to share information. Each write-up offers basic information on the trust's mission, objectives, board of trustees, and program areas. Two sections cover the following types of trusts: (1) operating trusts or foundations, e.g., the Equal Opportunity Foundation, Ford Motor Company-sponsored community trusts (Trust for Educational Advancement in South Africa, Algoa Bay Charitable Trust, and Pretoria Development Trust), Hexagon Trust, Human Resources Trust, IBM South Africa Projects Fund, Medtronic Africa Fund, Mobil Foundation, Music Shareholder Trust, and South African GE Educational Trust; and (2) examples of other trust-related mechanisms, e.g., a foreign company's trust (Volkswagon); an emplyees' trust (Delta Motor Corporation); and an evolving trust (Control Data Corporation).
