Our History

Kagiso Trust (KT) was founded in 1985 during a period of intense struggle in South Africa. During this tumultuous time we strongly opposed apartheid by providing support to development institutions and initiatives across a range of sectors.

After 1994 we broadened our social vision through the establishment of Kagiso Trust Investments and for the next decade focused on uplifting our communities through targeted education and enterprise development programmes. In 2005, we secured our financial stability through a series of strategic investments and partnerships that strengthened and expanded our capacities to develop people and communities.
