The Impact of your Donation

The programmes at the Kay Mason Foundation impact over 200 scholars each year. Every donation, big or small, contributes to the success of our programme.

Here’s how your donation can make a difference:

Scholar Sponsorship:

Our most dedicated students are awarded 5-year bursaries to attend a quality High School. We evaluate each recipient and award custom financial packages according to their particular needs. This includes costs for school fees, transportation, uniforms, textbooks, etc. click here for an itemized breakdown. On average, 1 scholar requires 50,000 ZAR each year to attend High School (250,000 ZAR for the full 5 years).
