Corporate Social Investment
Our commitment to social development extends beyond giving. We are investing in our country’s future by focusing on sustainable initiatives that impact the communities we support.
Our social development focus is centred on health, education, social development and preservation of the environment.
We drive financial literacy through our flagship initiative, the JSE Investment Challenge, which is aimed at introducing high school learners and university students within South Africa to the world of finance, by teaching them the fundamentals of investing on the stock exchange through a simulated game.
We support other social development needs through our engagement with organisations that have tangible impact in communities, in the form of bursaries, poverty alleviation programmes, anti-crime projects, environmental preservation and funding for school development.
The following initiatives are currently supported: Afrika Tikkun, Business Against Crime South Africa, National Education Collaboration Trust, Computershare, Buffelshoek Trust, Alexandra Education Committee, Eersterust Association for Community Health, Sacred Heart College Three2Six project, Walter Sisulu Paediatric Cardiac Centre, Adopt a School Foundation and World Wide Fund South Africa.
JSE employees also give of their time and skills through Project Hope.
How we transform communities
The JSE is committed to supporting initiatives that are sustainable, with long-term and measurable socio-economic impacts in communities across the country.
All our partnerships are designed to be long-term relationships to ensure they have a deep, broad and sustainable impact in the identified communities. The JSE’s focuses on national priority issues, such as poverty alleviation, job creation and youth and community development, as indicated by the National Development Plan and the Financial Sector Codes and initiatives aligned to the JSE’s business which include financial literacy and enterprise development.
To effectively make a contribution according to our approach, project identification and is support is led from within the JSE, so the JSE is unable to consider unsolicited proposals. .
