Legacy Through Charity Trust

Annelise is the founder and trustee of a Charitable Trust called "Legacy through Charity". Registered with the Master of the South Gauteng High Court under registration number IT 2455/2012. 116-048 NPO / PBO 930041253 Simply having an auditor on board does unfortunately not guarantee that a fundraising campaign or any other service is run honestly. The structure of the Trust ensures that there are total accountability and transparancy in all the work she does and prevent that no one person, company or welfare organisation alone will control the campaign bank accounts, enriching itself by it - or be in a position to mismanage money to the detriment of the other beneficiaries. Through this Trust, the fundraising efforts of numerous welfare organisations were combinied in order to save huge amounts of money and prevent the unneccesary duplication of services.

Other trustees of the Trust are:

Turnstone Corporate Trustee (SA) (Pty) Ltd

Turnstone added their value by registering this Trust and they ensure that all legal requirements are met on an ongoing basis. They are represented in this campaign by Hanna Marais. "This is a fabulous project to work on. It is great to know that at the receiving end of this campaign, there is not an organisation which benefits, but an individual, somebody with a heart and soul – and often one with a furry tail!!" Jip, you guessed it right, her heart lies with animals. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Patricia Gumede 

A well known businesswoman with expertise in many fields. She has established herself as a successful individual who understands the corporate world. "In my line of business it is not possible to be involved in the operational running of a welfare organisation. But I can add value to them by serving on this trust. This campaign gives me the opportunity to give something back to the community in the best way I can - and for helping not only one organisation, but an entire range of them". Pat's heart lies in education and she would walk the extra mile to ensure better education opportunities and systems in South Africa. This email address is being protected from spambots.
