    about us

    we believe in giving back

    At Capitec Bank, we believe that we have a responsibility to improve the lives of people in SA and that we need to focus on the communities in which we operate.

    A cornerstone of our CSI initiatives, maths develops the ability to solve complex problems, which is a vital life skill.  

    Our CSI focus aims to support high school education, financial literacy and the communities in which we operate.

    We care

    We have aligned and focused our CSI programmes to:

    • Address the needs of the communities we serve
    • Address our core business objectives with programmes that will help improve maths performance of high school learners and financial life skills programmes to increase the level of financial literacy among our clients
    • Ensure compliance with SA socio-economic and regulatory requirements

    Our CSI programmes

    Bursaries

    High school education with maths can help increase numeracy levels, so we focus on school bursaries in the belief that this will lead to an improved matric pass rate, and in turn, job creation and economic growth. Our bursary fund, which targets learners from public schools in Grades 10 – 12 with maths as a matric subject, covers the learner’s school fees for one year. Bursaries are awarded to learners who are steady performers despite financial difficulties – those who stand out from the crowd and who will excel with support.

    IkamvaYouth

    We support ikamvaYouth which is an innovative township-based, volunteer-driven and youth-led non-governmental organisation. IkamvaYouth helps equip learners from disadvantaged communities with the necessary skills and resources to access tertiary education and employment opportunities once they matriculate. Many matriculants stay on with the programme as tutors.

    Post grad diploma in management practice

    In partnership with UCT's Graduate School of Business (GSB) and The Principal’s Academy, we support this new post grad diploma which uses teaching strategies modelled on the GSB business courses. This action-based leadership programme aims to improve the management, leadership skills and business acumen of school principals to create an environment where school management, governing bodies, parents and local communities can interact to create centres of excellence.

    Financial life skills programme

    There’s a need to empower consumers to make better financial decisions and understand the consequences of their actions, such as bad debt and not honouring loan repayments. We therefore have agreements with Seta-accredited trainers to present financial life skills programmes to employee groups free of charge.

    Donations

    We’re committed to community initiatives and the wellbeing of communities where our branches are located. We specifically support organisations and institutions that actively contribute to the care and safe refuge of children who have been abused, neglected, abandoned and orphaned, and those that support women who have been victims of abuse.
