Winston Churchill said “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” Since inception of Gray Swan Financial Services (Pty) Ltd, we have allocated 10% of our profits to the Gray Swan Charitable Trust (GSCT). Via our Trust we make a meaningful difference in the lives of the less privileged. The sole purpose of the GSCT is to be a channel through which GraySwan and other companies or individuals can generously give to make a difference.
We know that the finest way to ensure sustainable giving is to not only allocate funds, but to personally be involved in our projects Our employees and our Trustees get to know those who benefit from the GSCT’s funding; those who steward their money, those who daily are committed to go into broken places of communities to restore hope and life. When the less privileged has a name, a face, a dream, one realises that when you have more than you need, it is remarkably more joyous to build a longer table, instead of a higher fence.
We partner with organisations that are skilfully managed to competently steward resources while adhering to principles that we value and relate to.
One of the highlights in 2016 was the launch of a School Shoes Project called “Walk with a Purpose”. We managed, through the assistance of donor schools, distribute 1,800 pairs of school shoes and tekkies to less privileged schools in our direct community. Corporates matched R70 per pair and we managed to raise R120 000 which was used to assist the less privileged schools with burning needs. This is a continuous project and we aim to raise 3,000 pairs of shoes in 2017.
Walk with a Purpose
The GraySwan Charitable Trust initiated and launched a soulful shoe project, “Walk with a Purpose” in 2016. The mission of the project is for kids (and adults) to walk with a purpose by participating in the global trend of launching awareness of one of life’s most basic necessities, namely a pair of shoes…
As with our motto, “always count”, we test and verify everything. Each month we conduct more than 30 different detailed investment manager peer group GraySwan ScoreCards. Every report encapsulates more than 30 pages of performance and risk related statistics and form part of various quantitative reports, which we use as an initial screening methodology in our investment manager research process.
