Schools are resource constrained. Let's solve that.
The Principals Fund is a tool for primary and high school principals in South Africa.
We empower Principals with the finances and the financial tools they need to deliver great education. If you are a Principal and need finance or financial services for your school, or help and advice on how to sustainably improve your schools finance position, contact us. We are a not-for-profit company run by a team of accountants and principals whose collective purpose is to build financially strong and financially sustainable schools in South Africa.
We would love to try and help.
HOW WE THINK ABOUT OUR APPROACH
We are not educators. We are accountants. Becoming an educator and running a school is a skillset that requires training and experience. Our role in the relationship is to provide the principal and the teachers with the technology and knowhow to build the financial resources to innovate, and the financial transparency to manage well.
We both build the school as a vehicle for education, as well as use the school as a vehicle for practical training and development.
OUR PROGRAMMES FOR PRINCIPALS
The LEARNER INVESTMENT FUND with FRANC
The LIF is a partnership with Franc which encourages learners and learners' parents to start investing for their tertiary education early. Learners, or their parents, can invest any amount each week, in either an equity or fixed deposit product. Apart from exceptionally low fees, the school at which the learner studies benefits by sharing in he fee income earner.
Our most recent investigation showed that learners stand a 5X better chance of obtaining university funding if they leave school with at least R15,000 for early registration fees at their chosen university. Let your learners start saving towards their education now.
The SCHOOL UNIVERSITY Programme
As a principal of a school, you have access to a range of faclties. However, these facilities require funds in order to maintain them. We have partners with ZAIO to deliver the School university programme. This will deliver technical coding courses for matric and post matric learners at the school, while sharing a portion of the revenue generated with the school.
The SCHOOL INVESTMENT Programme
As a Principal, you are the custodian of the school's present and future during your time in office. How do you leave the school in a stronger position than when you started. Talk to us about the school investment programme, a systematic approach to building an endowment programme for your school.
