Since it inception, the Foundation has directed its funding to a number of focus areas and much effort is devoted annually to planning and budgeting in order to remain true to the spirit of its founders, while concurrently remaining sufficiently flexible in order to be relevant to the needs of an ever-changing environment.

Our funding is focused in three areas only:

Operationally, our Grantmaking Strategy consists of three elements:

Traditional Giving these are operational cost contributions/donations to beneficiaries operating in any of the three focus areas (childcare, health services or educational programmes).

Social Investment & Development Grants in this segment, we focus on three topics:
- Higher Education (including Students with Disabilities, Engineering & Architecture and the Fuchs Doctoral Scholarship Programme)
- Childcare Projects (related to children in the following areas: food security, children's health, children with disabilities, HIV/AIDS, education, children's rights, life skills/youth development, institutional/foster care, children-at-risk and promotion of excellence)
- Health Services (including Paediatric Care, Geriatric Services and Muscular/Skeletal Disorders & Arthritis).

National Flagship Projects these are multi-year, large development undertakings that are based on a particular theme within one of our 3 focus areas, typically researched, initiated, managed and assessed by the Foundation. Normally, these beneficiaries are funded through a Call-for-Proposals process as part of the National Flagship Project.
