About the Fund

The Solidarity Fund was created on 23 March 2020 to respond to the COVID-19 crisis in South Africa. It is a platform for the general public, civil society and the public and private sector to contribute to the consolidated effort to fund various initiatives.

The Fund works closely with government and business, but it is independent of both of them. It is responsible for, and controls, the funds donated, and is accountable to them, with Old Mutual administering the funds on a pro bono basis.

The Fund will make public all donations and payments from the Fund on a regular basis. They will be administered by Tshikululu Social Investments to ensure transparency, monitoring and impact measurement.
