At RMB, we apply Solutionist Thinking to economic, social and environmental challenges. We promote good citizenship beyond CSI, or 1% Net Profit After Tax, to grow opportunities for innovative partnerships beyond business as usual.
As a division of the FirstRand Foundation, to the RMB Fund (our CSI vehicle) contributes to a strengthened economy and a better country for all through catalytic investments in education, training and skills development, specifically in support of the Creative Economy. Apart from the Creative Arts and the Environment Programmes, the RMB Fund commits significant support to the Ikusasa Student Financial Aid Programme (ISFAP), a student funding model between government and the private sector to support poor and ‘missing middle’ tertiary education students. Further contributions are made towards top performing, final year students in need, so they can graduate and join the formal economy.
